What do you know about this project? All I've been able to gather is that Tim Burton is directing it, Johnny Depp will be Wonka, and it's tentatively set to be released in June 2005.

Who's going to play Charlie Bucket?

I also understand that this is not a remake of the original Willy Wonka, but rather a more literal translation of the book. Anything else I need to know? I'm rather anxious for the release of this film, because I love the already existing Wonka film so much, as well as Burton and Depp.

The original has always been one of my all-time favorites, and even though Burton and Depp are amazing talents, I can't see this one working out.

I'm hoping for the best. While I'm not huge fan of Burton's work as a whole, I think he capable of some great stuff, provided he's obligated to follow a solid storyline. I really can't wait to see Depp as Wonka. I didn't think anyone could replace Gene Wilder, but when I heard Depp's name in conjuction with the film I changed my mind.

I haven't seen the original nor read the book, for that matter. But seeing Burton and Depp work together again gets me very excited -- they are, after all, two of the greatest duos working nowadays.

I'm jusy wondering, but lately I've been seeing this many times... what's people's obsession with spelling "hot" with two Ts? Is it the "in-thing" to say/type at the moment? Did I miss something?

"hawt" is also quite popular nowadays.

oh please.. you are wrong.. "hott" is when talking about someone of the opposite sex being attractive (or the same sex if that's your thing).. and "hot" is like "wow, these bananas in hot chocolate milk are really hot" and "hawt" is no way to spell anything! MUAHAHA

This new lingo doesn't interest me. I'm trying to revive "old boy," "banana oil" and "coolage."
