Gene Wilder didn't like Tim Burton's 'Willy Wonka' remake

UPI News Service, 06/15/2013 

Gene Wilder, who starred in 1971's "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory," said he didn't like the 2005 remake and doesn't care for Tim Burton.

In an interview with New York non-profit center 92Y on Thursday, the U.S. comedian said Burton's reimagining of the Roald Dahl tale was "an insult."

"It's probably Warner Bros.' insult," he said, as quoted by the New York Daily News Friday.

"Johnny Depp, I think, is a good actor," Wilder said. "But I don't care for the director. He's a talented man, but I don't care for him doing stuff like he did."

Wilder said he hasn't made a movie since 1991 because "after a whole, [movies] were so dirty."

"Once in a while, there was a nice, good film, but not very many. ... I didn't want to do 3-D, for instance. I didn't want to do ones that were just bombing and swearing," he said. If someone says 'Ah, go f--k yourself,' if it came from a meaningful place, I'd understand it. But if you go to some movies, can't they just stop and talk once in a while?"
