Claes Bang Investigates The Last Vermeer

Claes Bang (Dracula) stars alongside Guy Pearce (Memento) in The Last Vermeer, adapted from the novel The Man Who Made Vermeers by Jonathan Lopez, which has just been handed a new November release date and trailer.

While Joseph Piller (Claes Bang), a Dutch Jew, was fighting in the Resistance during the Second World War, the witty, debonair aesthete, Han van Meegeren (Guy 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 (Vicky Krieps) becomes increasingly convinced of Han’s innocence and finds himself in the unlikely position of fighting to save his life.

The cast also includes Roland Møller (Atomic Blonde), August Diehl (A Hidden Life), Olivia Grant (All the Money in the World), Adrian Scarborough (Artemis Fowl) and Susannah Doyle (Black Mirror).

The Last Vermeer, directed by Dan Friedkin, is slated for a theatrical release on 20th November.
