Did You Know?
Dutch crime reporter and co-writer Peter R. de Vries
did not attend the movie premiere because he did not agree with the end result. He felt the events depicted in the movie were too different from the actual kidnapping as he had described it in his book. Oddly enough, de Vries had agreed to participate in the making of this movie because he felt that the first film about the famous kidnapping, The Heineken Kidnapping
(2011), had not been accurate with many of the historical facts either. See more
