Gene Wilder Willy Wonka

Uh oh! Gene Wilder played the original Willy Wonka, and he revealed that he can’t stand Johnny Depp and Tim Burton’s remake in which Johnny plays his character! Gene called the remake movie “an insult” to the original film and while he thinks Johnny is “a good actor” he had this to say about Tim Burton:

I don’t care for that director. He’s a talented man, but I don’t care for him doing stuff like he did.

Charlie And The Chocolate Factory

Which Willy Wonka movie did you like best? The original: “Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory” or the remake “Charlie And The Chocolate Factory”?
