Judi Dench, Matthew Morrison Join ‘Tulip Fever’

The Weinstein Company has added Judi Dench and “Glee” star Matthew Morrison to the cast of historical drama “Tulip Fever,” set in 17th century Amsterdam.

It’s the 10th film that Dench has done for the Weinsteins. Dench will play the Abbess of St. Ursula’s, a rescuer of orphan children, and Morrison will play a drunken bohemian artist.

Previously announced cast includes Alicia Vikander, Dane DeHaan, Jack O’Connell, Holliday Grainger, Christoph Waltz and Zach Galifianakis.

Justin Chadwick is directing from a Tom Stoppard script, adapted from Deborah Moggach’s romance novel. Ruby Films’ Alison Owen is producing the project.

Vikander plays a married woman who begins a passionate affair with an artist hired to paint her portrait. The duo gamble on the tulip bulb market to raise money to run away together.

TWC co-chairman Harvey Weinstein said, “I’m unbelievably proud to say that ‘Tulip Fever’ will be the tenth film we’ve collaborated on with my friend Dame Judi Dench, whom I consider one of the most talented actresses of our time.”

Dench’s films with the Weinsteins include six films for which she received an Oscar nomination — “Philomena,” “Mrs. Brown,” “Shakespeare in Love,” “Iris,” “Mrs. Henderson Presents” and “Chocolat.” She won a supporting actress Oscar for “Shakespeare in Love.”
