In my opinion, Martin Short would play the part perfectly.
Tim Curry might be interesting!
Nobody. Gene Wilder was perfect!
Tim Curry?? Wowzza!! Interesting choice, but then again he'll always be Gabriel Knight to me.
I think the character should be made female and the woman who played the ghost of christmas present in Scrooged should play her
EXACTLY! Do NOT remake this movie. And yes, Gene Wilder was the only man who could play Mr. Willy Wonka.
I can't see this film being remade. I don't want it remade. And Wilder is the only Willy Wonka.
In the remake of Willy Wonka, I would choose:
Nobody can do it better.
Gene Wilder For there can be no other Wonka IMHO
Arnold Swarzenegger Come on! Imagine him laying it all out to Charlie and Grandpa Joe: (in your best Arnold Voice) "Wrong, sir, wrong! Under Section Thirty-Seven B of the contract signed by him it states quite clearly that all offers shall become null and void if--and you can read it for yourself in this photostatic copy: "I, the undersigned, shall forfeit all rights, privileges, and licenses herein and herein contained, et cetera, et cetera . . . fax mentis incendium gloria culpum [the torch of the mind lights the path to glory], et cetera, et cetera . . . memo bis punitor delicatum! [I remember the spoiled punisher twice] It's all there, black and white, clear as crystal! You stole Fizzy Lifting Drinks. You bumped into the ceiling which now has to be washed and sterilized, so you get nothing! You lose! Good day, sir! "
Imagining Arnie going through that was most amusing.
I recall a similar thread a few months back. The rumour at the time was Marilyn Manson or something.
If it had to be remade, I could see the once touted Nic Cage playing Wonka.
Never say never, so I'll say it'll be extremely unlikely that anyone could fill Wilder's shoes.
IMHO, Nicolas Cage really could pull this complex mixture of emotions off. He is a skilled actor, and his face suggests both great joy as the greatest candymaker in the world, and the stern, dark underbelly of Wonka.
Yeah, my money's on Nic Cage.
This movie doesn't need to be remade, however, Christopher Walken would be interesting in the part.
Didn't Alan Cummings already play a Willy Wonka knockoff in Spy Kids?
I agree that it's hard to imagine anyone else other than Wilder, but I think Alan Cumming would be a decent choice.
It's hard to imagine anyone but Gene Wilder as Wonka. But if it were remade, I'd go with Warwick Davis. Kidding aside, I could see Nicolas Cage, Harrison Ford, or Ewan McGregor playing him.
Anyone see ALICE IN WONDERLAND the version with martin short? Tell me he wouldnt play the part perfectly.
