Sam Worthington ("Avatar"), Ryan Kwanten ("True Blood"), Jim Sturgess ("Upside Down"), and Dutch actor Mark van Eeuwen are set to join Anthony Hopkins in the action-thriller "Kidnapping Freddy Heineken" from Informant Media.

The story chronicles the 1983 kidnapping of Dutch beer magnate Freddy Heineken and his driver Ab Doderer. The two were released after payment of a record ransom of around $50 million.

Daniel Alfredson ("The Girl Who Played with Fire") directs from a script by William Brookfield ("Rough Magic") based on a book by Peter R. de Vries.

Howard Meltzer, Judy Cairo and Michael A. Simpson will produce. Filming begins late October in Belgium.
