Burbank, CA - September 2, 2004 - Global Star Software has announced that Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has awarded them
Quote:
the exclusive worldwide license to develop, publish and distribute videogames based on the upcoming Warner Bros. Pictures film, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, directed by Tim Burton, and based on the classic Roald Dahl book.

The launch of the videogame is scheduled to coincide with the 2005 release of the film that stars Oscar nominated actor Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka.
There's very little information out there as to what kind of game this will be. I know my imagination has been running wild while reading the announcement. I'd love to explore Wonka's factory in the context of a game.

Quote:
The unique nature of the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory content offers a rare opportunity to create a great interactive extension of the fiction," said Jason Hall, Senior Vice President of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.
Backbone Entertainment will be developing the PC version of the game.

Will we all be handed the famous Golden Ticket?

Quote:
NEWSMAN: (philosophically) "We must remember that there are many more important things in this world than Golden Tickets. Many more important things." (a pause) "Offhand, I can't think of what they are, but I'm sure there must be something."

I wonder what the *NEW* Willie Wonka movie will be like.
I expect it will be very different from the old one.

Yup. They're not trying to copy the first movie though. The new one is supposed to be closer to the book. And Johnny Depp will be Willie Wonka instead of Gene Wilder. From what little I've heard, it will be spookier than the first movie, like many of Tim Burton's movies are. Think "Nightmare Before Christmas" or "Edward Scissorhands."

bravo Dawn, that was good! Now can you sing that while doing a cartwheel? laugh I can't remember the lessons, but I can sure sing the chorus loud and off key!

*succubus voice* "Chocolate! I love chocolate!
ooopps I acc-i-dentally swallowed it!"

laugh

Glad to hear they are taking a different direction with that. Johnny Depp is talented enough to try, I know. Be fun to see what he does with the role.

Nothing is likely to budge my fondness for the Gene Wilder classic though. His perfomances are always unique. Can't imagine anyone replacing him in anything! And that movie was great, even though the effects are hokey now. "Grandpa" was really sweet...and some of the naughty kids were wonderfully over the top. Remember Veruka (sp) Salt?

Wonder what kind of game it will be? think

*sings along*

It'll be fun to see what Tim Burton does to the chocolate factory. evil

Of course, Granny, because no one would have come if I yelled, "CHOCOLATE!" (On second thought, I should have kept quiet to keep it all to myself.) laugh

I know a lot of people who would come if you yelled "CHOCOLATE!"
Especially if you yelled "FREE CHOCOLATE!"

A vat of chocolate with Johnny Depp in it!! My idea of heaven.

I'm a pastry chef and even though I work with pounds of the dark sweet stuff a day, I still never get enough!

Not sure I'll like a remake of one of my all time favorite movies (especially by Tim Burton) but a game has wonderful possibilities
