Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl

Who can fill Gene Wilder's shoes and lead Charlie, Veruca, Augustus, Violet, and Mike Teevee on a magical tour through the chocolate factory? Will the movie gloss over the Oompa Loompa slavery issues as the 1971 version did? Is a remake even a good idea?
