Alicia Vikander’s ‘Tulip Fever’ Gets Release Date

The Weinstein Company has set a limited July 15 release date in the U.S. for its period drama “Tulip Fever,” starring Alicia Vikander, Dane DeHaan, Christoph Waltz and Judi Dench.

It’s TWC’s third release slated for summer, along with Michael Keaton’s “The Founder” on Aug. 5 and Robert De Niro’s “Hands of Stone” on Aug. 26.

Tulip Fever” is directed by Justin Chadwick from a script by Tom Stoppard, based on Deborah Moggach’s novel of the same name. Producers are Alison Owen and Harvey Weinstein.

Holliday Grainger, Jack O’Connell, Zach Galifianakis, Matthew Morrison, Tom Hollander and Cara Delevingne also star in the drama.

The story is set in 17th century Amsterdam, with Vikander playing a married woman who begins a passionate affair with an artist (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. Waltz plays Vikander’s husband who commissions the painting.

The project was originally planned for a 2004 shoot with Jude Law and Keira Knightley as the leads and John Madden directing, but the production was halted after government incentives were cut in the U.K.

Filming took place in the U.K. during the summer of 2014. Vikander won the best supporting actress Oscar for “The Danish Girl” in February.
