    Anyone heard they're remaking this? Johnny Depp is Willy Wonka, and it's being directed by Tim Burton, so at the very least you know it's going to be reeeally weird. The original book was actually very dark and the Gene Wilder was extremely toned down, I'm guessing Burton's going for the darker, goth feel of the original. I'm sort of excited for this. Here's the poster...

    I have heard this is being remade. I haven't seen it with Gene Wilder though. I read the book several times when I was growing up, and I've read it to my daughter. One of my favs.

    Willy wonka with gene wilder was pretty freaky at times but still considered a kids movie. Put Tim Burton and Johnny Depp together and this will have an R rating.
