Very few names pop up that are quite as harsh on the ears as one Tim Burton.
Over the past few years, Burtonâ€™s career has fallen on hard times, making a fine amount of money at the box office, but becoming something of a critical pariah. But now, as producer, things may be changing as heâ€™s got one hell of a cast for his next flick.
THR is reporting that both Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Reynolds have joined the cast of his new project, a biopic entitled Big Eyes.
The film will follow the story of painters Margaret and Walter Keane, whose â€œpop-eyed paintings became a sensation in the 1960s.â€
While Iâ€™m not all that familiar with the family or the duoâ€™s works, this does sound like something Burton could do well. The film will be helmed by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, who are also behind the filmâ€™s screenplay, which has drawn quite a great deal of attention. Personally, Iâ€™m not at all a fan of Burtonâ€™s pieces, but his best films are his biopics. Hopefully this sucker can be half the film that Ed Wood truly is.
