Judi Dench - Judi Dench joins Tulip Fever

Dame Judi Dench has been cast in 'Tulip Fever'.

The veteran actress, 79, will be joined by 'Glee' star Matthew Morrison in the 17th century historical drama set in Amsterdam and this marks the tenth movie Dench has made with The Weinstein Company.

According to Variety, film boss Harvey Weinstein commented: ''I'm unbelievably proud to say that 'Tulip Fever' will be the tenth film we've collaborated on with my friend Dame Judi Dench, whom I consider one of the most talented actresses of our time.''

The 'Philomena' star is set to play the Abbess of St. Ursula's, a rescuer of orphan children, while Morrison is on board to portray a drunken bohemian artist.

They join previously announced cast members Alicia Vikander, Dane DeHaan, Jack O'Connell, Holliday Grainger, Christoph Waltz and Zach Galifianakis.

Justin Chadwick is directing from a Tom Stoppard script, which has been adapted from Deborah Moggach's romance novel, and Alison Owen is producing the project via Ruby Films.

Model Cara Delevingne is also set to make her big screen debut, taking a small role in the drama.
