Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein wants to turn British model Cara Delevingne into a bona fide Hollywood star by hiring her for his next movie Tulip Fever.

Weinstein met the model through his fashion designer wife, Georgina Chapman, and he wants to give the aspiring actress a boost by casting her in his new drama alongside Christoph Waltz and Alicia Vikander.

He says, "I know Cara through Georgina but we know her also for who she is and what she is. I've been talking to her about doing something in my next movie, Tulip Fever. We're shooting in May and I cannot imagine her being anything but fantastic in front of the camera. She's adorable."

Delevingne made her acting debut in 2012's Anna Karenina and she has two more films set for release this year (14), including The Face of an Angel, a drama inspired by the story of convicted murdered Amanda Knox.
