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.
