"I think it's an insult... I don't see the point of going back and doing it all over again. 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." Gene Wilder is not a fan of Tim Burton's Charlie & the Chocolate Factory remake. Wilder played candy man Willy Wonka in the first movie adaptation of Roald Dahl's book in 1971.
