I think I like this idea.

Rumours surrounding the casting of Tim Burton’s next film CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACOTRY have been swirling around Hollywood for the past year, but today we hear that Johnny Depp is poised to accept the role of chief chocolate maker, Willy Wonka. Variety reports that Depp has been offered the role of Wonka, which would make this his fourth outing with the director since 1990’s Edward Scissorhands. According to studio insiders, the only thing that could throw a chocolate spanner in the works would be the success of Pirates of the Caribbean which means that Depp’s agents could ask for a smidgeon more cash this time around.
