Remake of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Tim Burton is remaking the classic kids movie Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The original will be a hard to live up to, and I have my doubts as to weather Johnny Depp will be a match for Gene Wilder ("Candy is dandy, but liquer is quicker" - words that I live my life by), but it should be good fun.

Fun fact for the day: Peter Ostrum, the actor that played Charlie in the original, never made another movie. He is now Dr Ostrum, a vet in upstate New York. I was led to beleive that he was one of the Dukes of Hazard, but apparently this is false.
