Kate Hudson has found her next project. The star of Fool's Gold will next tackle a starring role in the film Big Eyes based on the life of painter Margaret Keane.

Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski are co-writing and co-directing the independent film which is scheduled to begin production this summer.

The film focuses on the life of Margaret Keane, an artist known for painting her subjects with big eyes. The San Francisco-based artist was once involved in a legal battle with her now ex-husband who claimed he was actually the one who did the paintings. Margaret Keane proved she was in fact the one with the artistic talent by painting in front of a Federal Judge and jury.

Hudson also has the comedy movie Bride Wars in the works.
