Comingsoon.net reports Johnny Depp worked on the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory movie set in London and the voice/animation role of Corpse Bride simultaneously in an article entitled: In the Future: Chocolate Factory Cast & Crew by Edward Douglas.
Director Tim Burton approached Depp on the first day of shooting Charlie with this little script and pretty soon Depp found himself literally leaving the stage playing Wonka and would be taking on the role of Victor. “The [Corpse] script was amazing” said Depp and “anything with Tim is always just a blast.”
Johnny has more to say on jumping back into the skin of Captain Jack, the making of movie on rock and roll guitar player Syd Barrett for Pink Floyd and of course, more on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory just follow the link above. June 29, 2005.
