Just got finished laying in the background for the

Judging by the image we used, it should be obvious
that one of the next highly - anticipated films to hit theatres is Charlie
and the Chocolate Factory. We have received tons of early 'comments'

Depp goes on to discuss how much he enjoys scaring
studio execs with his over - the - top antics; the same antics that helped
Pirates of the Caribbean score so high with Depp's character Jack
