Posted Thu Aug 16, 2012 at 06:00 AM PDT by

The thriller starring Rutger Hauer in his Rembrandt Award-winning role will hold Blu-ray for ransom in a few weeks.

IFC Films will bring 'The Heineken Kidnapping' to Blu-ray on August 28.

Amsterdam, 1983. Alfred Heineken (Rutger Hauer, 'The Hitcher,' 'Split Second'), one of the world's wealthiest brewers and arguably the most influential man in Holland, is kidnapped by a gang of young hoodlums and held for ransom. Chained to the wall of a cold, cramped cell for 21 grueling days, the business magnate is subjected to humiliation at the hands of the kidnappers. But when the ransom is paid and Heineken is set free, he embarks on a personal vendetta to find his captors and exact revenge. Based on the true story of one of the most sensational kidnappings in Europe, 'The Heineken Kidnapping' is a smart, tense thriller in which predator becomes prey and power is gained through conviction.

Specs have yet to be revealed, and the only supplement is the original trailer.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.98.
