Finally: an official “Tulip Fever” news article

After long time of guessing and waiting, we finally got to hear something Tulip Fever-related on news blogs. So, Dane is definitely in the cast, and we hope that our guesses about him practicing painting for the movie in London are true :) Read the article below:

Following a breakthrough role in The Hangover, comedian Zach Galifianakis became quite a hot commodity, though some of his roles felt like they were studio attempts to softly cash in on the actor’s odd comedic sensibilities and throw him at mainstream audiences. The only role that didn’t feel like a cheap gimmick was his surprisingly dramatic turn in It’s Kind of a Funny Story, but it sounds like we might get another worthwhile performance from the comedian soon. Screen Daily counts Galifianakis amongst the cast for director Justin Chadwick‘s film adaptation of Deborah Moggach’s period novel Tulip Fever.

For those who may not be familiar with the book, here’s the official synopsis:

In 1630s Amsterdam, tulipomania has seized the populace. Everywhere men are seduced by the fantastic exotic flower. But for wealthy merchant Cornelis Sandvoort, it is his young and beautiful wife, Sophia, who stirs his soul. She is the prize he desires, the woman he hopes will bring him the joy that not even his considerable fortune can buy.

Cornelis yearns for an heir, but so far he and Sophia have failed to produce one. In a bid for immortality, he commissions a portrait of them both by the talented young painter Jan van Loos. But as Van Loos begins to capture Sophia’s likeness on canvas, a slow passion begins to burn between the beautiful young wife and the talented artist.

As the portrait unfolds, so a slow dance is begun among the household’s inhabitants. Ambitions, desires, and dreams breed a grand deception — and as the lies multiply, events move toward a thrilling and tragic climax.

Chadwick previously directed The Other Boleyn Girl and Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, and this time he’s working from a script by Tom Stoppard (Anna Karenina, Shakespeare in Love). As for the rest of the cast, it certainly makes Galifianakis feel a bit out of place with Christoph Waltz, Dane DeHaan, Jack O’Connell, Holliday Grainger and Alicia Vikander attached. Of course, we have every bit of faith and curiosity in Galifianakis tackling something so remarkably different after having to sit through three films to make up The Hangover franchise. The film is on sale at Cannes, and we hope to hear more soon.

‘Reckless’ Anna Wood and ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’s’ Dane DeHaan enjoy ‘exciting whirlwind’

Dane DeHaan with wife Anna Wood

Marriage to the Green Goblin may be easier if you’re also an actor who knows just what goes into making someone a monster.

The star of CBS’ Southern-set law drama “Reckless” — premiering Sunday, June 29 — Anna Wood is the wife of Dane DeHaan, who just had a big box-office weekend as one of the web-slinger’s prime enemies in the instant-hit movie “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” While she’s excited about her show, Wood says she was just as thrilled to make recent promotional rounds with her spouse.

“Oh, my gosh, it’s been just the most exciting whirlwind of a month for us,” the former “Mad Men” and “House of Lies” guest star tells Zap2it. “He just went to London to start shooting the movie ‘Tulip Fever,’ and we couldn’t believe it was already time for him to leave. Every day, we’ve had a new thing to do to celebrate all the wonderful opportunities we’ve had.”

Wood’s own film work has been on the order of smaller, independent films, such as director-writer-star Edward Burns’ 2010 comedy “Nice Guy Johnny.” However, she maintains if an “Amazing Spider-Man” came her way, she’d certainly consider it … “especially after seeing what an amazing time” DeHaan had.

“They’re all unique experiences, depending on who you have on board. For this one, I got to do the entire European tour with them, and they couldn’t have been a nicer or more enthusiastic group of people. They totally had their hearts in the right place.”

Woods adds she was “blown away by the amount of charity work, and work with kids, that they did as they went to each different city. If you can keep it as grounded and humble and fun as they did, where do I sign up?”

VIDEO: TASM2: Dane DeHaan Discusses Darker Alternate Green Gobiln Transformation

Dane DeHaan in The Amazing Spider-Man 2

The Daily Beast recently chatted with Dane DeHaan about his new film, The Amazing Spider-Man 2. In the film, DeHaan plays Peter Parker’s best buddy and uber rich, Harry Osborn. The son of Norman Osborn is afflicted with some sort of virus or disease that apparently gets passed down from generation to generation of Osborns. In the second half of the film, Harry has a dramatic transformation into the Green Goblin. DeHaan says that his villainous appearance could’ve looked much different and the transformation process was originally much darker in tone.

“The first test we did was more cartoony,” DeHaan says, “but we wanted to bring it more into the organic, realistic world that Marc Webb created.” That means spiked hair mimics the shape of the purple hood. Jaundiced, splotchy skin subs for a full coat of green face paint.

And the costume is far more utilitarian, and not to mention modest, than the comic version’s booty shorts. And the transformation from Harry Osborn into the Green Goblin is undeniably one of the film’s more spectacular, if disturbing, sequences. Apparently, though, it could have been even darker. DeHaan says the version we see in the film is toned down from more graphic version they shot. “There was a shot of my teeth growing and then I shatter them,” he says, giddy with excitement. “And then there was my nails growing. Maybe we’ll see it in the director’s cut.”

VIDEO & photos: Behind the Scenes at Weta Workshop – “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”

Opening in theatres this weekend, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – the Rise of Electro has been a very cool project for the crew at Weta Workshop.

The Green Goblin‘s costume and make-up along with Electro’s suspension rig and a number of props in the Oscorp vault were designed and built right here in the workshop. Make sure to view the video above and check out the photos of Dane from the video trying on the Green Goblin’s costume and putting on make-up.

“Interview” magazine: article & new photos


Self-confessed theater geek Dane DeHaan left his hometown of Allentown, Pennsylvania, while he was still in high school to study acting at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. Television roles (on HBO’s In Treatment and True Blood, among others) came quickly, and soon DeHaan was racking up an impressive roster of film credits. In a matter of just four years, he has worked with John Sayles (in the 2010 war saga Amigo), with John Hillcoat (across from Tom Hardy and Shia LaBeouf in 2012’s Lawless), with Steven Spielberg (reciting the Gettysburg Address to the president in 2012’s Lincoln), and with Derek Cianfrance (in 2012’s The Place Beyond the Pines). In last year’s Kill Your Darlings, he played Lucien Carr, a college friend of Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg, who in 1944 murdered his admirer David Kammerer, and initially had his beatnik buddies help cover it up (Carr ultimately pled guilty to manslaughter and served 18 months at a reformatory).

Now 28, DeHaan again plays a real-life murder suspect (this time, Chris Morgan, a peripheral character in the West Memphis child murders), alongside Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth, in director Atom Egoyan’s Devil’s Knot, about the West Memphis Three, out this month. He’ll also appear in the little drama The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as Peter Parker’s nemesis Harry Osborn—a playboy who morphs into the Green Goblin.

And for his next project, the young actor who has made a name playing troubled adolescents takes on his dream role, playing Mister Moody himself, James Dean, in Anton Corbijn’s forthcoming Life (opposite Robert Pattinson, who plays photographer Dennis Stock). If this series of roles sounds somewhat familiar, we thought it did too. And so we asked James Franco, who broke out in 2001 as the lead in the TNT movie James Dean and played Osborn in the Tobey Maguire-era Spideys (as well as Allen Ginsberg in Howl, 2010), to give DeHaan a call. Franco, who is presently doing Of Mice and Men on Broadway, rang from Brooklyn to discover that DeHaan, who’d recently flown to New York from Toronto, was only a few blocks away.

Domestically, families made up 33 percent of the audience of the PG-13 “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” a high percentage for a superhero film.

On Movies: Taking on the role of his tragic film idol

Dane DeHaan as James Dean in upcoming 'Life'

NEW YORK – Here’s an odd bit of trivia about Lehigh Valley-born Dane DeHaan: Thus far in his relatively brief career, the 28-year-old actor has had two major screen roles previously owned by James Franco.

One is Harry Osborn – a.k.a. Green Goblin – the troubled scion of the founder of the sinister global conglom Oscorp, and Peter Parker’s friend-turned-foe. DeHaan plays Harry in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which opened everywhere this weekend. Back in the aughts, Franco was Harry in the three Sam Raimi-directed Spider-Mans starring Tobey Maguire.

In 2001, a year before the first Spider-Man, Franco portrayed James Dean in a much-lauded TV biography. DeHaan has just finished playing the ’50s screen icon in Life, which follows Dean and Life magazine photographer Dennis Stock (played by Robert Pattinson) on a trip back to the star’s Indiana hometown before the 1955 New York premiere of East of Eden.

“It really is strange,” says DeHaan, noting the parallels with Franco, the famously industrious actor/director/scribe/poet/teacher/Ph.D. candidate/Instagrammer. “Because I don’t even see us as similar types of people.”

All he wants to do – all he’s ever wanted to do – is act.

DeHaan joined his first theater program – the now-defunct Stage Door Workshop in Allentown – when he was 4. He was back there every summer until he was 16.

“It was this really amazing theater camp for kids where we would take classes and then we’d do a play,” he says, his blue eyes, capable of being as cold as ice onscreen, aglow with fond memories. “It was like a mini summer conservatory.”

DeHaan, who grew up in Zionsville, son of a computer programmer and a furniture company executive, went to Emmaus High School. He appeared in school plays, to be sure, but also in community theater. Evenings, weekends, whenever. For his senior year of high school, he went to the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, and stayed on, graduating from the drama program in 2008.

“If I could, I would stay there forever,” he says of the Winston-Salem school. “It’s a very safe, wonderful place.”

Instead, he headed for New York. He understudied Haley Joel Osment in the short-lived revival of David Mamet’s American Buffalo, and played a credit card thief in a Law & Order: SVU episode.

He won attention for his recurring role as a rageful teen who has sex with older men in the third season of HBO’s psychotherapy series, In Treatment. Like the show’s other younger cast members – Mia Wasikowska, Alison Pill – DeHaan’s weekly appearances opposite Gabriel Byrne led to film offers, and Hollywood.

DeHaan was one of the trio of high school pals who suddenly gain superpowers in the 2012 found-footage sci-fi feature Chronicle. He had a small role as a Union soldier in Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln. And he played Ryan Gosling‘s son in the third chapter of Derek Cianfrance’s The Place Beyond the Pines, which also starred Bradley Cooper. The scene of DeHaan’s character riding a just-bought motorcycle down a country road – Gosling’s character was a motorcycle stunt rider – ends the film.

In Kill Your Darlings, released last year, DeHaan was Lucien Carr, the 1940s Columbia student who fell in with Beat Generation luminaries William Burroughs (Ben Foster), Allen Ginsberg (Daniel Radcliffe), and Jack Kerouac (Jack Huston).

There’s something incredibly cinematic about Dane,” says Marc Webb, who cast and directed him in Amazing Spider-Man 2. “He can be surprisingly funny, and it’s weird because when you watch him, there’s something a little off-balance, a little dark, but then you start talking to him and he’s the sweetest guy in the world. . . . It’s disarming.”

For Amazing Spider-Man 2, DeHaan gets to turn more than a little dark. As Harry, reluctant heir to the Oscorp fortune, he finds himself rekindling his friendship with Andrew Garfield‘s Peter Parker, only to square off against Peter’s Marvel superhero alter ego. The final, furious face-off in the giant-screen spectacle pits Spider-Man against Green Goblin – Harry with a hideous skin ailment, demonic eyes, wild hair, in an armored suit whooshing around on his electromagnetic Goblin Glider.

“The last fight between me and Spider-Man was definitely the most physically challenging part of the whole six-month shoot,” DeHaan says. “The set was like 110 degrees at least, and I’m wearing a 50-pound suit and covered in prosthetics. In between takes, they were literally pouring buckets of ice water down my back and it was turning to steam – my brain was melting.

“It was crazy. But still really fun.”

There are no 50-pound suits in Life, the James Dean movie DeHaan wrapped in February. Instead, the pressure came from inside.

“It was the biggest challenge of my life, for sure,” says DeHaan, who is married to actress Anna Hood, also a University of North Carolina School of the Arts alum. “Dean has always been one of my favorite actors. I’ve had a poster of him on my wall since I was in college . . . . I would tell someone that I was doing the movie and they would immediately tell me something about James Dean – and most of the time they were wrong.”

DeHaan laughs.

“And there was so much about him that I found out that I was wrong about, too. It was this really interesting journey of taking this guy that has been on my wall and making him human, and figuring out who he actually was and trying to embody that.”
