Gene Wilder calls Wonka remake “an insult”

Gene Wilder – the original Willy Wonka – has given his opinion of Tim Burton’s remake.

Moviefone are reporting that Wilder, star of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory in 1971, was making a rare public appearance in New York when he was asked about Tim Burton’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, released in 2005.


“I think it’s an insult. It’s probably Warner Bros.’ insult.”


Wilder was also less-than-complimentary to the film’s director, but did at least find time to praise the movie’s star.


“Johnny Depp, I think, is a good actor, but I don’t care for that director. He’s a talented man, but I don’t care for him doing stuff like he did.”


The remake received positive reviews and made nearly $475 million upon it’s release.

  1. Think Gene was just jealous.

  2. Actually, he’s right.

  3. I didn’t disagree, I still think he’s jealous though πŸ™‚
