Oscar-Winning Original Songs Split Between Part of Plot and End Credits

Of the five Oscar-nominated original songs for the 87th Academy Awards, Selma’s “Glory” and Beyond the Light’s “Grateful” are the only songs that solely play over the end credits of their respective film.

Alchemy Buys Anthony Hopkins’ ‘Kidnapping Mr. Heineken’

13 January 2015 5:48 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Alchemy has acquired the crime thriller “Kidnapping Mr. Heineken,” starring Anthony Hopkins, Jim Sturgess, Sam Worthington and Ryan Kwanten, and set a March 6 release date for theaters and VOD.

It’s the first deal for Alchemy since it rebranded itself last week and ditched the Millennium Entertainment label. The acquisition of the film is expected to be the first of several upcoming projects with producer Informant Media, which produced “Crazy Heart,” “Hysteria,” “Erased” and “Stuck in Love.”

Swedish director Daniel Alfredson, who helmed “The Girl Who Played With Fire” and “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest,” shot the film in Belgium, Amsterdam and New Orleans. Producers are Informant Media partners Judy Cairo and Michael A. Simpson.

The film 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 35 million Dutch guilders — currently equivalent to $50 million. »
