Kate Hudson has inked a deal to star in “Big Eyes.” The film which will be independently financed is about painter Margaret Keane.
Production on the flm will possibly start some time in June, that is if the resolution of the SAG contract works out.
Kate will play Keane in the film. Keane was best known for her paintings featuring big-eyed children.
The drama covers Keane's personal awakening at the onset of the feminist movement, leading to a lawsuit she filed against her husband, Walter, who claimed credit for her works.
It's nice to see Kate doing something other than a romantic comedy which is usually what we see her in.
