X-Men actress Famke Janssen is to star in new Dutch thriller The Hero, which will be directed by her sister Antoinette Beumer (Loft) and has been written by her other sister Marjolein Beumer.
It will be the first time all three sisters have worked together on a film and is also the first starring role for Janssen in a Dutch feature.
Based on the novel by Jessica Durlacher, The Hero follows a Holocaust survivor who seeks revenge after masked men break into her house and shoot her husband and she is assaulted in the woods.
Janssen said: “We always talked about making a movie together and now we will have the chance to do so. I really look forward to this adventure with my sisters. Next to that it also feels great to star in a Dutch film for once.”
Producers are Rachel van Bommel and Antoinette Beumer of Millstreet Films.
