Sony has set a new release date for The Last Vermeer, a crime drama starring Guy Pearce, Claes Bang, Vicky Krieps, Roland Møller, August Diehl, Olivia Grant, Adrian Scarborough, Andrew Havill and Karl Johnson. Directed by Dan Friedkin, the feature will now hit theaters on Nov 20.
James McGee, Mark Fergus, Hawk Otsby penned the screenplay based on the book The Man Who Made Vermeers by Jonathan Lopez. The film premiered to audiences at last year’s Telluride Film Festival and was originally scheduled to be released in May.
Here’s the synopsis: While Joseph Piller (Bang), a Dutch Jew, was fighting in the Resistance during the Second World War, the witty, debonair aesthete, Han van Meegeren (Pearce) was hosting hedonistic soirées and selling Dutch art treasures to Hermann Goring and other top Nazis. Following the war, Piller becomes an investigator assigned the task of identifying and redistributing stolen art, resulting in the flamboyant van Meegeren being accused of collaboration — a crime punishable by death. But, despite mounting evidence, Piller, with the aid of his assistant (Krieps), becomes increasingly convinced of Han’s innocence and finds himself in the unlikely position of fighting to save his life.
Ryan Friedkin, Danny Friedkin and Bradley Thomas produced the pic with Ridley Scott, Peter Heslop, and Gino Falsetto serving as executive producers.
