"It's all about money," Wilder told Contact Music. "It's just some people sitting around thinking, 'How can we make some more money?' Why else would you remake Willy Wonka? I don't see the point of going back and doing it all over again.
"I like Johnny Depp, and I appreciate that he has said on record that my shoes will be hard to fill. But I don't know how it will all turn out."
Sounds like the original Wonka is mad, no Golden tickets for this film! But this whole thing gives me a good idea. I'm going to e-mail our CEO and see if we can hire Wilder to review the movie when it comes out for Cinematical. Now wouldn't that be cool?
