It was written by Leslie Dixon and Kurt Wimmer and is a remake of the 1968 film of the same name. Its story follows Thomas Crown, a multi-millionaire who steals a painting from an art gallery. This causes an attractive insurance investigator to pursue him for the crime and before long the two fall in love. It stars Pierce Brosnan, Rene Russo and Denis Leary.

The film was produced by United Artists and Irish DreamTime and was released on August 6, 1999.

It received positive reviews and has a 78% approval rating based on 32 votes on Rotten Tomatoes.

Thieves infiltrate the Metropolitan Museum of Art inside an actual Trojan horse, preparing to steal an entire gallery of paintings, but are apprehended. In the confusion, billionaire Thomas Crown – the crime’s secret mastermind – steals Monet’s painting of San Giorgio Maggiore at Dusk. NYPD Detective Michael McCann heads the investigation into the theft of the $100 million artwork, with the unwelcome assistance of insurance investigator Catherine Banning.

Crown donates a Pissarro to fill the Monet’s space in the museum and falls under Banning’s suspicion. She convinces McCann to begin surveillance of Crown, deducing that the wealthy playboy is motivated not by money but the sheer thrill of the crime. Banning accepts Crown’s invitation to dinner. Before the date, Crown’s therapist correctly guesses that he has found “a worthy adversary” in Banning.
