Alicia Vikander's 'Tulip Fever' delayed to 2017
Indie pic from The Weinstein Company Tulip Fever, starring Alicia Vikander, has met a considerable delay. Initially penned for a July 15 release, it won't reach an audience until February 24, 2017.
The film follows a young woman who has a passionate affair with an artist tasked with painting her portrait. The period film - set in 17th century Amsterdam - had been pegged for award contention.
Justin Chadwick directed from a script by Tom Stoppard, adapted from Deborah Moggach's novel. There is no reported reason for the change.
