Guy Pearce, Claes Bang, Vicky Krieps, and Roland Moller are set to star in Imperative Entertainment pic “Lyrebird” with Ridley Scott on board to produce. The film tells the true story of Dutch folk hero Han Van Meegeren, who swindled millions of dollars from the Nazis by selling them forgeries of Johannes Vermeer paintings and is considered the most successful art forger of all time.
The film’s producers, Dan Friedkin and Bradley Thomas, told Sony movie chief Thomas E. Rothman that they were determined not to let the wrongdoings of one person damage a film that had been worked on by more than 800 people.
