I just heard that Tim Burton will be directing the remake for Charlie and the Chocolate factory starring Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka. I did some searching on the internet and found this:

I'd really like to see that. Depp would be perfect for the role of Wonka and Burtons darkness might add a whole new feeling to the film.

Can't wait to see his version of the boat ride.

Looking forward to it. hesitantly tho'. I'm not impressed with Burton's ability to handle a story. Maybe this will turn out ok as it is being adapted from a good book.

Sigh.

Memo to Hollywood: stop destroying my childhood.

Gene Wilder was the epitome of Wonkaness, says I.

I always thought that the chocolate river that Augustus Gloop almost drowned in looked like blood.

You think that maybe there will be an oompa-loompa intercaste war, like in Planet of the Apes 2K?
