After two push backs on its release date and a lack of promotion for “Tulip Fever,” The Weinstein Company has finally presented an “official character teaser poster” for the period drama starring Alicia Vikander, Judi Dench, and Christoph Waltz. The film reportedly had polarizing results in test screenings dating back to 2014.
The film is produced by Alison Owen and Harvey Weinstein, penned by “Shakespeare In Love” writer Tom Stoppard (based off the book by Deborah Moggach), and directed by Justin Chadwick (“The Other Boleyn Girl”). Official synopsis below:
Set in 17th century Amsterdam, TULIP FEVER follows a married woman (Alicia Vikander) who begins a passionate affair with an artist (Dane DeHaan) hired to paint her portrait. The lovers gamble on the booming market for tulip bulbs as a way to raise money to run away together.
Also starring Dane DeHaan, Holliday Grainger, Jack O’Connell, Zach Galifianakis (not quite sure what he’s doing in a period film), Matthew Morrison, Tom Hollander, Cara Delevingne, Cressida Bonas, and David Harewood, “Tulip Fever” is set to hit theaters on August 25, 2017…finally?
