Confirmed as a 2 December release:
From legendary filmmaker Paul Verhoeven (Robocop, Basic Instinct) and screenwriter Gerard Soeteman (Soldier of Orange) comes an explosive, fast-paced and thrilling coming-of-age drama. Raw, intense and unabashedly sexual, Spetters is a wild ride that will knock the unsuspecting for a loop.

Stuck in a dead-end town on the outskirts of Rotterdam, three young friends, Rien, Eef and Hans have one thing in common: their passion for motorcycle racing, which each sees as his ticket to a better life.

But a deeper passion will soon rule each of their lives, when a sexy, ambitious blonde (Renée Soutendijk, The Fourth Man) comes between them and provokes a series of unforeseen events. The film also co-stars the late great Rutger Hauer (Flesh + Blood, Blade Runner) and Jeroen Krabbé (The Fugitive).
