Charlie and the Chocolate Factory premiere
The long anticipated film Charlie and the Chocolate Factory has premiered in the US. Seen at the event were Britney Spears, Melanie Griffiths and Johnny Depp, who plays the role of Willy Wonka in the film. According to the Pirates of the Caribbean star, his inspiration for this particular role was “part game show host, part children’s show host…locked in a closet for about 10 or 15 years”. The film?s director, Tim Burton, is obviously a big fan of Johnny, having worked with him before in Edward Scissorhands. Of this role, he said, “I think Johnny brings a great edge to Willy Wonka. He invites kids to the factory and gives them sweets and chocolates, but on the other hand the four of them meet a sticky end.” The film also stars Helena Bonham Carter and Freddie Highmore.
