Based on the book The Man Who Made Vermeers by Jonathan Lopez, the official logline for the film reads as follows:

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.

Directed by Dan Friedkin (Killers of the Flower Moon) on a screenplay from James McGee and mark Fergus & Hawk Otsby (The Expanse, Iron Man), the cast for the film includes Pearce, Bang, Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread), 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 is produced by Ryan and Danny Friedkin alongside Bradley Thomas, while Ridley Scott, Peter Heslop and Gino Falsetto are attached as executive producers on the historical drama.
