Tulip Fever is Indeed a “Fever” to Watch

Tulip Fever is a historical drama film about a 17th-century painter in Amsterdam who falls in love with a married woman whose portrait he has been hired to paint. The film is directed by Justin Chadwick (The Other Boleyn Girl) and stars Alicia Vikander, Dane DeHaan, Christoph Waltz, Judi Dench, Zach Galifianakis, and Jack O’Connell. The film was distributed by The Weinstein Company. It was shot during the summer of 2014 and was finally released last September 1, 2017. As I’ve noted, the film was shot last 2014 and it took them around three years to finally release the film.

Film Review: Alicia Vikander in ‘Tulip Fever’

Film Review: Alicia Vikander in ‘Tulip Fever’
Timing is everything. That’s the takeaway, both on-screen and off, from “Tulip Fever,” a well-bred, if tawdry period drama set in Amsterdam at the height of Tulipmania, in 1637, when prized bulbs might fetch more than the value of a house. It was an economic bubble, of course (although the term would not be coined for nearly another century, with the so-called British South Seas Bubble), and fortunes were made and lost according to when investors entered the market.

But timing also matters in the telling of such stories, and Deborah Moggach’s 1999 novel coincided nicely with the dot-com bubble, whereas the long-delayed adaptation of same from the Weinstein Company arrives at a perplexing moment. Not only is there nothing presently in the zeitgeist to which to peg such a story (except perhaps the Dane DeHaan-Cara Delevingne reunion nobody asked for, shot before “Valerian” and shelved for nearly a year), but the entire package has

'Tulip Fever' Review: This D.O.A. Period Piece Should've Died on the Vine

'Tulip Fever' Review: This D.O.A. Period Piece Should've Died on the Vine
Forget fever – this floral-scented fiasco is so lifeless you can barely feel a pulse. Tulip Fever, which was shot in 2014 but only hitting theaters now after years of recutting, retooling and release-date reshuffling, should have been allowed to die on the vine. Is it one of those clunkers that's so godawful it’s great fun? You wish. The film just sits there onscreen like a wilting flower with nothing to nourish it.

On the surface, at least, it looks like a class act, a period piece about the tulip boom in 17th-century Amsterdam.

Box Office: With No Wide Releases, Record-Low Summer Looks to End With a Whimper

Box Office: With No Wide Releases, Record-Low Summer Looks to End With a Whimper
No third-act plot twist here.

What is tracking to be the slowest summer box office season in over a decade looks to end in perhaps the most anticlimactic manner possible — with no new wide releases.

The most high-profile fresh launch of the weekend is TWC’s long-delayed “Tulip Fever.” The historical drama, set in 17th century Netherlands during the economic phenomena known as tulip mania, was filmed three years ago and underwent a series of release day delays. It’s directed by Justin Chadwick, who also made 2008’s “The Other Boleyn Girl,” and stars Alicia Vikander, Dane DeHaan, and, further down the bill, his “Valerian” co-star Cara Delevingne.

There are a handful of other new releases entering limited run, including Pantelion’s “Do it Like an Hombre” (a hit in Mexico), IFC’s “Viceroy’s House” with Gillian Anderson, “I Do… Until I Don’t” (Lake Bell’s directorial followup to “In a World”), and FilmRise’s

Justin Chadwick Signing On To Direct Signal Hill Movie

The developing film project about the infamous Signal Hill case is moving closer to reality, with the news that director Justin Chadwick is in talks to take the helm. The movie will see Marvel star Anthony Mackie play the role of lawyer Johnnie Cochran – who later made a name for himself representing clients such as O.J Simpson and Michael Jackson, but began his career as an advocate for black victims of police brutality.

The Signal Hill case arose in 1981, when Cal State Long Beach football star Ron Settles was arrested for speeding in Los Angeles County, and was later found hanging in his jail cell. While the La police insisted that the cause of Settles’ death was suicide, the family vehemently disagreed, until Johnnie Cochran arranged for the body of the late 21 year-old to be exhumed. Further examination indicated that Settles had been choked to death, and his family

Anthony Mackie’s Johnnie Cochran Movie Draws ‘Mandela’ Director

Anthony Mackie’s Johnnie Cochran Movie Draws ‘Mandela’ Director
British director Justin Chadwick is in negotiations to helm Anthony Mackie’s untitled Johnnie Cochran biopic.

Chadwick directed 2013’s “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom,” “The Other Boleyn Girl” and the upcoming “Tulip Fever.” David McMillan penned the script for the Cochran project.

The film will be centered on the 1981 wrongful death case of college football star Ron Settles. Signal Hill police ruled that Settles had hung himself in a city jail cell in despair over his arrest for speeding, but Cochran suspected foul play and persuaded the Settles family to request that the body be exhumed for an autopsy, which showed Settles had been choked to death.

The Settles family was subsequently awarded $1 million in a civil suit against the Southern California city. Cochran is best known for his defense of O.J. Simpson in the 1995 murder case in which Simpson was acquitted.

Robbie Brenner, The Firm’s president of film, will produce along with Mackie and Jason Spire. Jeff Kwatinetz will be exec producer, along with McMillan.

Mackie was most recently seen in “Captain America: Civil War.”

Chadwick is represented by UTA. Mackie is repped by UTA and Inspire.
