Tag Archive: Margaret Keane


Danny Huston (“X-Men Origins: Wolverine”) is in talks to join “Big Eyes”. From director Tim Burton the film is a biopic of artist Margaret Keane, who made famous creations featuring big eyed children. She eventually sued her husband who tried to take credit for her work. Amy Adams is playing Keane while Christoph Waltz (“Django Unchained”) is playing the husband.

At one point, the film “Big Eyes”, which is about artists Walter and Margaret Keane, whose paintings depicting women and children with wide eyes, was set to star Ryan Reynolds and Reese Witherspoon. Writers Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewsk penned the script and were going to direct. Now Tim Burton is stepping in to helm the film and Reynolds and Witherspoon are out with Christoph Waltz and Amy Adams in. Frankly, I like the new actors and it’ll be nice to see Burton take a break from doing mega budget blockbusters.
