Danny Huston Targets Tim Burton’s Big Eyes

ON

Big Eyes, Tim Burton’s upcoming biopic of artist Margaret Keane, appears set to add Danny Huston to its cast. The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the X-Men Origins: Wolverine star will join Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz in the upcoming production.

Adams will play Keane, the painter whose distinctive creations featuring big-eyed children became one of art’s first mass-market success stories in the 1950s. The drama covers Keane’s personal awakening at the onset of the feminist movement, leading to a lawsuit she filed against her husband, Walter (Waltz), who claimed credit for her works.

Huston, who would play a gossip reporter, currently stars on the television series “Magic City” and will appear in Ari Folman’s The Congress.

The script for Big Eyes arrives from Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, who previously worked with Burton on Ed Wood.
