Dane DeHaan also boards period drama…

Oscar winning actor Christoph Waltz (‘Django Unchained’) and Dane DeHaan (‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’) are to star alongside Alicia Vikander (‘Anna Karenina,’ ‘A Royal Affair’) in the Justin Chadwick-directed period drama ‘Tulip Fever.’

Based on the novel of the same name by Deborah Moggach, the long-gesting 17th century Dutch drama is set during a period when tulipomania has seized the populace, the book follows the romantic liaison between Vikander’s character, Sophia, and a talented artist (played by DeHaan) hired by her rich husband to paint her portrait. The lovers invest in the risky tulip market in hopes to build a future together.

Chadwick is gearing up for an April start with Alison Owen’s UK-based banner Ruby Films and The Weinstein Company producing. Pre-production is scheduled to begin in April.
