Tulip Fever Trailer Screen Captures featuring Judi Dench

Oh, speaking of Tulip Fever, here's an interesting FYI...it was adapted from Pride & Prejudice 2005's screenwriter Deborah Moggach's novel of the same title. Keira Knightley was previously attached to star in this movie before she was cast as Elizabeth Bennet in Pride & Prejudice (2005) movie, but the film was cancelled just when it was about to start filming...
“Pride and Prejudice” is due to start shooting on July 19th. Strangely enough, Kiera Knightley is starring in that, too (she’s one of the Tulip Fever stars). via Deborah Moggach's news archive on her website
Deborah Moggach herself said this on her website news archive dated January 2004...
Despite being just about to shoot, the film of Tulip Fever has been cancelled due to the surprise move of the Inland Revenue to close a tax loophole used by film financiers. This literally happened overnight, costing scores of jobs and the loss of 12,000 rare tulips specially planted to flower during filming (somehow this was the worst thing of all). Such a waste of all that effort – six years of it – and talent (Jude Law was to star, Tom Stoppard had written the screenplay, John Madden was to direct it…) Too depressing for words. Still, the novel will always be there, and maybe they can rescue the film at a later date. “Pride and Prejudice” should also be shooting this summer. Working Title are producing it. No idea about cast at this stage. Read more.
I think this movie was not meant for Keira, as she was destined to star in P&P movie (which I loved and preferred for her better) and with ironically, TF author Deborah Moggach to adapt it, so it worked out well for both, but unfortunately, not with Jude Law and the rest of the former TF cast and crew. Keira and Jude at least co-starred in Anna Karenina in 2012. Interestingly, some years later their AK co-star Alicia Vikander is now starring in this movie with KK's P&P co-stars Judi Dench and Tom Hollander.

Here’s the official Tulip Fever synopsis.
Set in 17th century Amsterdam, TULIP FEVER follows a married woman (Alicia Vikander) who begins a passionate affair with an artist (Dane 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.
