Frank Lammers (Floodland, The Swell) and Elise Schaap (I.M., Familie Kruys) will star in Ferry, reprising their Undercover roles as Ferry and Danielle.

Amsterdam 2006. Ferry Bouman is working for drug lord Ralph Brink, a powerful criminal and Ferry’s mentor. One day the gang is brutally attacked and Ralph’s son is severely injured. When all leads point to a group of campers in Brabant, Ferry is sent there to find the perpetrators — returning to his beloved Brabant, from which he had fled many years before. The difficult reunion with his estranged family, the return to the camper life he had forsaken, and the meeting with his charming neighbor, Danielle, all gradually get under Ferry’s skin. And his journey will lead to unexpected outcomes and put Ferry’s loyalty to the test.

Said Frank Lammers about the new film:

“Ferry is back – again! It is unbelievable that there is going to be a Netflix feature film about Ferry Bouman. It feels a bit like a dream come true. I am really looking forward to it and I think it is great that we can now take the fans back to the early days.”

Added Elise Schaap:

“I am very proud to be part of this new Netflix feature film. It is going to be so exciting to go back to the beginning when Danielle and Ferry first met. We are really looking forward to it.”

Undercover showrunner Nico Moolenaar (The Score) has written the script with Bart Uytdenhouwen (Vermist), and Cecilia Verheyden (Undercover) will direct the movie.

Ferry is produced by Nico Moolenaar, Pieter Van Huyck, and Ivy Vanhaecke. The film is a project of Flemish production company De Mensen for Netflix, in cooperation with Gardner and Domm and Gallop and supported by Screen Flanders and the Tax Shelter measure from the Belgian federal government.

Stay tuned for updates, including the premiere date for Ferry.

(Fyi, Undercover: Season 2 arrives on Netflix in the Netherlands on Sunday, September 6, 2020.)
