Searching through the IMDB the other day I came across something interesting regarding Roald Dahl.

We were all brought up on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, etc and those of you from my era can probably remember Tales of the Unexpected on TV, but did you know Dahl cut his big movie teeth on screenplays, particularly Ian Fleming, doing Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and You Only Live Twice !

Apparently, according to IMDB, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is being re-made this year with Jonny Depp as Willy Wonka !!!

I read that about johnny depp a while ago. Iirc it is being made by tim burton, so if Big Fish is anything to go by it will rock.
