Walken as Wonka?!

07.09.2003

It's not a done deal by any stretch of the imagination but Patrick Sauriol, formerly of Coming Attractions and currently with Cinescape, is reporting that Tim Burton is in talks with Christopher Walken to star in his adaptation of CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY. Walken as Willy Wonka? Casting genius! With that Fatboy Slim/Spike Jonze video he proved he can dance and well, we all know he can be a bit creepy in that Wonka sort of way. Burton and Walken are longtime friends and collaborators who've worked together on BATMAN RETURNS and SLEEPY HOLLOW. The film is still in its earliest stages and casting may be sometime off, but if Burton gets the man he wants, it looks like it'll be Walken. It's a HUGE step up from Nicolas Cage or Marilyn Manson or whoever was rumored for the role so long ago. Should be fun to see how this film develops...
