I recently had the exciting opportunity to sit down with ‘Big Eyes’ screenwriters Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski. Enjoy the interview below!
You first met Tim Burton 20 years ago. You worked with him on Ed Wood. How did you first meet? What was that like?
We had, just through a sort of eccentric people who know people, six steps removed kind of thing. We had the idea to write a movie about Ed, and at the time, Ed was a figure of mockery. And after our Problem Child movies, we started identifying with Ed, and we sort of had this idea that nobody sets out to make a bad movie. It just kind of happens.
