Filming for the movie Tulip Fever was due to conclude at Norwich Cathedral last night – as the production company revealed the stars involved in the scenes at the historic site and that some filming had also taken place in a second Norfolk location.

Dame Judi Dench, who plays the Abbess of St Ursula in the film, was among the actors at the cathedral, while Alicia Vikander (who was in Anna Karenina) was also confirmed as being in Norwich by a production company spokesman, as was Dane DeHaan (Chronicle), Jack O’Connell (300: Rise of an Empire), David Harewood (Homeland), and Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover).

The spokesman said the filming, which began at the cathedral on Thursday last week, was due to finish last night, and also said the production company had been to the Norfolk coast but that she was not able to reveal the specific location.

Set in 17th century Amsterdam, Tulip Fever is based on the novel by Deborah Moggach, who also penned the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

It tells the story of a married woman who begins a passionate affair with an artist hired to paint her portrait, and filming over the past few days has been taking place both inside the cathedral and in the cathedral cloister.

An array of trees and greenery have been brought into the cloister, along with some cows, geese and pigs, to conjure up the backdrop for the film, and many extras appear to have been cast to play the roles of nuns. Yesterday two horses and a carriage also arrived at the film set.

The film is directed by Justin Chadwick whose most recent films include Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom and The Other Boleyn Girl.

Ruby Films’ Alison Owen (Saving Mr Banks) is producing the project with Harvey Weinstein, co-chairman of The Weinstein Company, and Bob Weinstein is executive producing. While filming was due to conclude last night, some of the production company are expected to be at the cathedral until June 25.

After the leaving Norwich the film company will be returning to Pinewood Studios. Filming for Tulip Fever is also taking place at locations in Suffolk, Essex, Kent.

‘Amazing Spider-Man 2’ Blu-ray gets release date, might have tantalizing deleted scenes

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 live NYC premiere

It probably had little impact on whether you liked The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but some fans were disappointed when the film’s end credits were not punctuated by the teaser that’s become expected from all the Marvel superhero franchises. At the end of director Marc Webb’s first Spider-Man movie, a mysterious figure confronts the imprisoned Dr. Curt Connors and asks, “Did you tell the boy the truth about his father?” But for the sequel, fans were left with a somewhat random promotional clip for Fox’s most recent X-Men movie.

Since then, the internet has speculated that Webb initially intended to include another teaser scene with the mysterious, gravelly-voiced shadow — whom we now know is Gustav Fiers — based on a Sony photo that seems to contain Norman Osborn’s severed but preserved head. Combine that with Webb’s decision to postpone scenes and certain character developmentsuntil the third film, and you have an inordinate amount of interest in the deleted scenes that might be included on the Blu-ray release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

EW can announce that Spider-Man 2 is available on Digital HD on Aug. 5 before arriving on Blu-ray and DVD on Aug. 19 – and the release might have something juicy. According to the set’s description, one of the 13 deleted scenes on the Blu-ray is titled “Peter Meets His Father.” Are we foolish to think this could be something more than another flashback, a dream sequence, or another iChat video message? Might Richard Parker (Campbell Scott) actually be alive? Maybe there’s a bookend to that first Spider-Man post-credit teaser: “Did you tell the boy the truth about his father?”

Blu-ray & DVD Bonus Features Include:  
4 All-New Deleted Scenes with Commentary by Marc Webb
Filmmaker Commentary
Alicia Keys “It’s On Again” music video

Exclusively Available on Blu-ray:
9 Additional Deleted Scenes with Commentary by Marc Webb, including “Peter Meets His Father”

“Triple Threat: Attack of the Villains” — An inside look at the development of Spider-Man’s fearsome foes, Electro,

And as filming was due to begin last night some final additions to the set were brought into the cloister – two cows, some geese and some pigs.
