“Big Eyes” Directed by Tim Burton Casting Call

Project Casting

Casting directors are now casting for an upcoming Tim Burton’s “Big Eyes” film shooting this August in San Francisco.

Beau Bonneau Casting is seeking SF Bay Area local Women with Ear to Chin Length Hair in their 20s – early 40s for paid extra work on “Big Eyes” a Tim Burton film shooting August 28–30 in San Francisco. This is a period film reflecting the late 1950s – 1960.

Background Actors will work 1 day only and must look authentic to the time portraying Beatnik, Artist and Bohemian types. Everyone must be photo approved by the Director (in early August) and able to attend a wardrobe fitting in SF between 8/19 – 8/23. 

The film’s story focuses on the artistic coupling of Margaret (Amy Adams) and Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz).

Walter became famous in the 1950s and 60s for paintings featuring saucer-eyed kids, though it was the shy Margaret who really did the work. Margaret eventually tired of the misplaced credit, which led to a divorce and a heated court battle to prove authorship of the paintings.
