The bitch has been evicted from number 23, but that don’t mean she hasn’t found food and shelter elsewhere.
With her “Don’t Trust the B— in Apartment 23″ sitcom (prematurely) axed, star Krysten Ritter is freed up to do some filmy stuff. Tim Burton’s the first to take advantage of Ritter’s recent unemployed status, signing the dark-haired beauty up for his newie “Big Eyes”.
“Big Eyes”, Deadline reminds us, is ”about Margaret and Walter Keane, the married couple whose paintings of large-eyed children became one of the first mass-marketed art sensations of the 1950s and ’60s.” Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz play the Keanes. Very Keane to see what they do with the roles. Keen, I mean.
Ritter, who recently appeared in the flick “Vamps”, plays “DeeAnn, the free-spirited confidante to Margaret who tries to coax her friend to come out of her shy shell.”
Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewsk wrote the script.
