Tim Burton’s Big Eyes Adds Krysten Ritter

ON

Big Eyes, Tim Burton’s upcoming biopic of artist Margaret Keane, has added Krysten Ritter to its cast. Deadline reports that the “Breaking Bad” and “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23” star will appear opposite Amy Adams, Christoph Waltz and Danny Huston 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. Ritter will play a friend of Margaret’s named DeeAnn.

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