I think Tim Burton is doing it.  I think Depp is perfect for it.  I remember there were rumors a year or so ago about Marlyn Manson playing Willie, I much prefer depp.

Yeah, Burton is directing.  Recent news had a very expensive camera fall into a vat of chocolate.  Kinda funny really.

I hope it will be very wacky and surreal and maybe even a bit dark.  That would be quite good...

I think it's safe to say that if Burton has anything to do with it, it will be a bit dark :)

If Burton is directing...I think JD will be perfect for the role and Burton's style...I look forward to it.  I wonder what the umpa loompas will look like!  :0)

It makes you wonder how many hippies will take a hit of acid before going into the theater to watch this.
I can imagine that it would be pretty trippy with Depp starring and Burton directing.

I will definitely be going to see this.

I heard that they are going to use one little person and duplicate him over and over so that all of the oompa loompas look the same.  Way back when Manson was cast for wonka, rumors said that the oompas would be demonish, but I think that's no longer true.

Something that would be even better than Burton directing a remake:

Todd McFarlane making twisted action figures of Willy Wonka and stuff. Look what he did with the Wizard of Oz: Twisted Land of Oz. Dorothy's getting branded by a munchkin while blindfolded and tied up nude.

Hey, am I the only one who remembers the original film with reverence?!?!?!  What could top the image of Jack Albertson's Grandpa Joe popping out of bed after some 20 years to the tune of Golden Ticket ("I never thought my life would be/Anything but catastrophe/But suddenly I begin to see/A bit of good luck for me")?  Or can Depp pull off the first view we had of Gene Wilder limping slowly out of the factory, leaning on his cane painfully, said cane getting stuck in a chink in the walkway, Wilder stopping, squeezing the canehead which is no longer there, and then pitching forward seemingly onto his face but then into a graceful forward roll up onto his feet in front of the gates, off comes the hat in a showman's flourish.
I just hope it doesn't turn into the poopstew that The Grinch became.  I saw 20 minutes of Ron Howard's live action remake and had to yank it out of the VCR machine, then gargle with Windex to get rid of the taste.
I  wish Tim Burton good luck.

One thing that always bothered me about the original was the fact that the candy shop owner sang a song and tossed out tons of free candy to all the kids while Charlie watched through the store window. (if Charlie was so hungry, why didn't he get his ass in there for a free handout?)
But when Charlie finds that dollar in the sewer and goes into the candy shop, the shopkeeper charges him for the candy!

He even says, "AHEM!" and holds out his hand for the money.
What a prick!

And what about the grandparents lying in bed for over 20 years!?
My God that would stink!
Laying in their own p**s & s**t for God knows how long before Charlie or his mother cleaned it up.
Sick.

Also, go HERE to read a truly hilarious reason as to why Grandpa Joe is a vile and evil man.

I think Depp will be brilliant as Willy Wonka.  However, I suspect that Tim Burton may make the movie too "dark" and take all the fun out of it.

What. the Ommpa Loompas need horns and a pointed tail to look deamonish? The eyes alone do it for me....

There were a LOT of dark undertones in the first one too.  The boat scene is a perfect example.
