Johnny Depp joined with director Tim Burton for the fourth time to film a new adaptation of Roald Dahl’s beloved novel ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’. The novel had previously been adapted to screen in 1971 as the movie ‘Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory’, a movie that some consider to be an outstanding classic, and others dislike. The 1971 movie starred Gene Wilder in the role of Willy Wonka that Johnny Depp would portray very differently 34 years later.

Summary

Deep Roy played every Oompa-Loompa himself, repeating the same movements several hundred times. While these were then put together digitally, each Oompa-Loompa represents a separate performance by Roy. In recognition of this, Roy’s salary was raised to $1,000,000.
