I'd heard rumors about a new, Tim Burton-directed version of Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory a couple years ago, but this is the first confirmation that it's in the works. Apparently, Dahl was never too keen on what Hollywood did to his work (Willy Wonka and The Witches), and his widow has been hesitant to give consent to new projects. She was, however, won over by Tim Burton, who she said, looked like Edward Scissorhands. The article also confirms a long-standing rumor that Marilyn Manson is very interested in playing the candy maker, Willy Wonka. Hoo boy!
