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?

  • SkyFire: Isn't Johnny Depp already cast as Willy Wonka? I hopes he doesn't act it like Pirates of the Caribbean..
  • CirrhosisTheWonderDog: According to the IMdB, he has. And what you don't think acting Willy wonka as an odd combination of drunk and effeminate works?
  • reeder: Depp's comic performance in PoTC created something worth watching in what otherwise would have been two hours of video oatmeal. And you make it sound ...
  • SkyFire: Would he have to wear as much eye makeup?
