Cheer up, Timmy


The remake of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory was thrown into chaos on Wednesday when a worker dropped a $540,000 camera lens in a vat of chocolate.

The clumsy technician had failed to properly secure his wire-held camera, and watched aghast as it plunged into the three foot deep tank. According to insiders, the delay the incident caused could cost director Tim Burton's project up to $900,000.

One source on the English set says, "When the camera fell it was like a slap-stick scene straight from the movie. A team of riggers had come in specially from the States to set it up over the vat of synthetic chocolate. But someone made a mistake and it wasn't secured properly. The production team didn't know whether to laugh or cry. The camera is probably beyond repair."

You Said

I'd take this as a sign there should be NO remake!

Some remakes are great - - but this one? I don't think so. I agree with -d, this is a sign.

What a whoops!

"Probably" beyond repair. LOL

Won't the camera just go up that tube thing that Augustus Gloop went up?? Can't they just retrieve both of them at the same time? Oh, wait - that is the chocolate river...not the vat of chocolate...my mistake!

Or, can't the Oompa Loompas fix it, Kel? They're magic!

A sweet story turned bitter...{great find!} I had to laugh but I bet they didn't.

Seems like all of Johnny Depp's latest projects are having troubles.

Why mess with something that's already perfect?
