Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Reynolds have officially signed on to star as Margaret and Walter Keane in the Tim Burton produced Big Eyes - a biopic about the famous art couple.

The Keanes became famous in the 1950s and 60s for paintings of (what else but) big-eyed children. The couple eventually filed for a divorce because Margaret was the artist, but because of the times, Walter took all the credit. Margaret eventually won her rights in court by painting a painting in her well-known style live before the federal court.
