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.
