Jason Schwartzman to join Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz in Tim Burton's Big Eyes
Remember the next Tim Burton project I told you about titled BIG EYES starring Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz? Right. How could you forget? Another member has been added to the cast, and he is actually one of my all time favorites-- Jason Schwartzman.
It also states that Krysten Ritter was already on board, but doesn't mention how recently she was hired. She also a favorite of mine from both BREAKING BAD and DON'T TRUST THE B IN APARTMENT 23. Yes, I watched that. Ritter is the Burton type. If you've seen her, you know what I'm talking about. If you haven't I've included one of the many gorgeous photos of her from the Esquire "Me in My Place" photoshoot.
Waltz and Adams will lead the film based on the true story of, "Margaret and Walter Keane, whose paintings of large eyed children became one of the first mass marketed art sensations in the 50s and 60s. Those prints sold in gas stations and every five and dime store across the country. While Walter was the marketing genius, he also took the bows for doing the brush work. He was a full fledged celebrity, a regular on the TV talk show circuit. His shy wife was the actual artist in the family. When they split and she tried to get her due, he painted her as being eccentric, and they ended up in court. There, a judge finally provided them with two easels and ordered them to prove it. Walter’s art reputation went down on the canvas when he begged off because of what he said was pain in his arm. She whipped up one of her trademark big-eyed works.Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski (ED WOOD, THE PEOPLE VS. LARRY FLYNT) penned the script.
Krysten Ritter is set to co-star as Margaret's free-spirited friend and confidante DeeAnn, while Schwarzmann will play a San Francisco art gallery owner named Ruben.
