The Alicia Vikander period drama, which was to have opened in the US later this month, has been rescheduled for next February.

The Weinstein Company (TWC) has pushed the US release of Tulip Fever, the UK-shot period drama starring Oscar winner Alicia Vikander (pictured), back from July 15 to February 24, 2017.

Produced by Alison Owen and TWC chief Harvey Weinstein, the film was shot in summer 2014, with Justin Chadwick directing from a script, based on the Deborah Moggach novel, by Tom Stoppard.

Dane DeHaan, Christoph Waltz and Holliday Grainger also feature in the story, set in 17th century Amsterdam, of a married woman who begins a passionate affair with an artist hired to paint her portrait.

TWC announced in April that the film would be released in select US theatres this summer.
