    the original is amazing and it's hard to picture anyone but gene wilder... but i'm a big johnny depp fan. i think if anyone can pull it off it's him. and this movie is so perfect for tim burton. i hope its good.

    The book was much better than the 1971 film.

    There was a bigger scope and much more magic in the book - the movie looked like a cheap pantomime stage set.

    And the new version isn't a remake. It's an adaptation from the original book.

    And Tim Burton is probaby the only director I can think of that can capture the kind of nightmarish quality of Roald Dahl.

    And Johnny Depp is a great choice for Willy Wonka. He just needs to play it somewhere between Sleepy Hollow and Pirates of the Carribean and he's home free. I mean, good as Gene Wilder is, he still played Willy Wonka as Gene Wilder...

    I'm looking forward to it.

    i agree totally here, gene wilder i always pictured as some 70's coke fiend, ie. ken rosenburg from the gta series. i dont know, johnny depp is gold.

    i like johnny depp as well, but he really is not on the level of gene wilder, especially this genre of movie... all gene wilders movies were classsics... MEL BROOKS is a GENIUS, tim burton is on track to carve out his own space as undergound/mallrat status type generation darker movies icon, but mel broooks is the GODFATHER of modern comedy... and i think that this movie always reminds me of bad acid trips, i used to love it, now its just, ehhh.... ill probably see the new one though... just for curiositys sake... live and blunted from.. bootleg city usa

    but if you really think about it, even though gene wilder is fantastic, he still played the character as himself. gene wilder didn't have much under his sleeve.

    johnny depp, although always playing an odd character goes about it differently with each film. this is not a crack at gene wilder, i still love the guy.

    that and try not to think of this movie as willy wonka. think of it as an adaptation of the book. go and read the book if you haven't already, you will see different stuff in the book than you did in the 1971 movie.

    i wonder if they will have a special guest apperance by the original charlie. i forget his name.

    the book is better than the movie.

    one part from the original, no matter how many times i watch it, that scares the hell out of me is the boat ride. i usually have to fast forward it or cover my eyes.

    It will certainly be interesting. I haven't read the book so I have no clue what to expect.
