Willy Wonka writer

02.28.2002

We're one step closer to a film adaptation of CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY with the announcement that Gwyn Lurie has been hired to write the script.  The film, which at one time had Gary Ross (PLEASANTVILLE) on board to direct, has been languishing in super-development-hell for the past few years.  Many players became attached and then departed due to creative differences.  Now Warners has hired Lurie, who wrote another adaptation of a Dahl book BFG for Paramount, to start from scratch.  The writer said she will ignore the Gene Wilder WILLY WONKA film and concentrate solely on the book. STUART LITTLE director Rob Minkoff is at the top of the director wish-list but no deal has been set.
