Thanks to moviepilot and screenrelish, we have all sorts of new Electric Slide goodies to share with you! A new synopsis, poster, and stills come from Screenrelish, along with additional stills from Moviepilot.
The film has an official twitter and facebook - so get ready for that April 3rd release in the United States!!
Jim Sturgess (Across the Universe, 21, One Day) plays Eddie Dodson, a Melrose Avenue antiques dealer who decided to become a bank robber. Dodson drove to the banks in a black ’63 Ford Galaxy LTD. He dressed up like an elegant criminal. He made mix tapes to listen to on his getaways. And in only nine months, Eddie robbed 64 banks – more than anyone has robbed before or since.
Taking its aesthetic cues from Eddie Dodson and the unique moment he occupied in L.A.’s countercultural history, director Tristan Patterson has forgone the style of straight-ahead biopics to create a New Wave dream of a romantic outlaw seeking self-reinvention and immortality in paradise.
A Polaroid snapshot of 1983 Los Angeles and a love letter to a man who decided to quit reality to live full-time in the Hollywood movie of his dreams, the film features an appropriate and electric mix of tunes from the likes of Iggy Pop, Magazine and the Psychedelic Furs.

Kidnapping Mr. Heineken is based on real events and takes place in the 1980s when a gang abducted the beer magnate, resulting in the largest ransom ever paid for an individual. The film has been classified with an R rating for coarse language throughout.
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.”
“Judy Cairo and Michael A Simpson have a taste level and track record that exemplify the kind of producers Alchemy is cultivating creative partnerships with,” said Alchemy CEO Bill Lee “In Kidnapping Mr. Heineken they bring us an elevated caper film that’s sure to please a wide audience. This is the first of what we hope to be many successful endeavours.”
“We’re delighted that this compelling true-life tale attracted the talents of such a world-class group of actors, who give remarkable performances,” said Simpson. “And we’re proud to team with Alchemy on Kidnapping Mr. Heineken. We’re excited about the company’s direction under Bill’s leadership, and we look forward to future partnerships.”
