Danny Huston is in negotiations to join the cast of Tim Burton’s comedic drama “Big Eyes” at The Weinstein Company.
The story deals with the relationship between 1950s artists Walter and Margaret Keane (Christoph Waltz and Amy Adams), a couple whose paintings of big-eyed children became a major success.
The story centers on a decades-long dispute between the two after their 1965 divorce over who actually painted the pictures.
Huston will play a burnt-out, heavy-drinking gossip reporter. Larry Karaszewski and Scott Alexander penned the script.
