Terence Stamp On For Big Eyes
He'll be part of Tim Burton's latest

Terrence Stamp

He’s a living legend. A strong-voiced stalwart. And still the Zodfather (sorry, Michael “I WILL FIND HIM!” Shannon, but it’s true). Terence Stamp is the sort of man who makes even tough-hearted Harvey Weinstein go all gooey fan boy when he announces his casting in Tim Burton’s latest film, Big Eyes.

The film charts the real-life scandal that rocked the art world in the 1970s and 80s when it was revealed that the striking paintings of children with big eyes, claimed by Walter Keane, were actually the work of his soon-to-be-ex-wife, Margaret.

After a court case which saw both of the couple presented with an easel to show off their work, Margaret won the right to paint under her own name.

Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz are aboard to play the central pair, with Krysten Ritter, Jason Schwartzman, Danny Huston and Jon Polito all in the cast. Stamp will be John Canaday, the New York Times art critic who is frustrated by Walter’s rise. “Besides the fact that Terence is one of the most brilliant actors of our time and a likely best actor Oscar nominee for Unfinished Song, he dated Julie Christie and Brigitte Bardot,” said Weinstein. “Not casting him for that reason alone would be a mortal sin!"

Big Eyes, written by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, is set to kick off filming this summer.

Your Comments

Burton's finest film is Ed Wood, this could be a sort of pseudo-sequel to that. And Terrence Stamp... well "Tell him I'm coming. TELL HIM I'M FUCKING COMING." More
