Entertainment One (eOne) have announced that they’ve secured the international rights to ‘Captain Fantastic,’ the comedy-drama starring Viggo Mortensen, written and directed by Matt Ross. eOne will handle sales of the film in all territories outside of the US, as well as directly distribute ‘Captain Fantastic’ through its own distribution infrastructure in the UK, Canada and Australia/New Zealand.
It was also announced today that Steve Zahn, Kathryn Hahn, Missi Pyle, and Erin Moriarty have joined the film’s cast, which also features Frank Langella and a group of up-and-comers including George MacKay, Annalise Basso, Samantha Isler, Nicholas Hamilton, Shree Crooks and Charlie Shotwell. ‘Captain Fantastic’ centers on a passionate father (Viggo Mortensen), who is so devoted to teaching his six children how to live, be free, and survive in the world that he has moved them deep into the forests of the Pacific Northwest. He spends his days teaching them combat skills, training them like professional athletes, homeschooling them in a rigorous classical education, and introducing them to the beauty of the natural world. However, when he is forced to leave their self-created paradise and confront the real world, he begins a journey that challenges his unorthodox parenting.

The first two images have arrived online from Tim Burton’s ‘Big Eyes,’ which is set for a December 25th release. Starring Amy Adams, Christoph Waltz, Danny Huston, Krysten Ritter, Jason Schwartzman and Terence Stamp, the film is based on the true story of Walter Keane (Waltz), who was one of the most successful painters 1950s and early 1960s. The artist earned staggering notoriety by revolutionizing the commercialization and accessibility of popular art with his enigmatic paintings of waifs with big eyes. The truth would eventually be discovered though: Keane’s were actually not created by him at all, but by his wife, Margaret (Adams). The Keanes, it seemed, had been living a lie that had grown to gigantic proportions.
