Trivia Tulip Fever

This film was seven weeks away from shooting in 2004. When the British government shuttered a tax break program, the $45 million budget grew by about $17 million, and the film was shut down. The film has now been resurrected by Ruby Films and the budget has been slimed down to $25 million. The film is set in the Netherlands but was entirely shot in UK (in Norfolk, Suffolk and at Pinewood Studios). Matthias Schoenaerts was cast as the male lead but dropped out. He was replaced by Dane DeHaan. Schoenaerts ended up co-starring with Alicia Vikander in La chica danesa (2015).
