Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #91. Tim Burton’s Big Eyes

Big Eyes

Producers: Scott Alexander, Tim Burton, Lynette Howell, Larry Karaszewski
U.S. Distributor: The Weinstein Co.
Cast: Amy Adams, Christoph Waltz, Krysten Ritter, Jason Schwartzman, Terence Stamp, Danny Huston

This will likely come across as sacrilege, but my disinterest in Tim Burton has grown over the years starting somewhere around the time he gave us his last most ambitious project in Big Fish. Replacing Johnny Depp in favor of the alluring ensemble cast (might be another award mention-worthy turn from Amy Adams) the scaled down dramatic compelling bio-pic fare sees Burton once again work with the same scribes who gave us Ed Wood and additionally know how to write court-room scenes of high value as seen with The People vs. Larry Flynt.

Gist: A drama centered on the awakening of the painter Margaret Keane, her phenomenal success in the 1950s, and the subsequent legal difficulties she had with her husband, who claimed credit for her works in the 1960s.

Release Date: Betch your bottom dollar that Harvey will want to launch this in Cannes. No release date has been issued as of yet.
