Tim Burton is a master at making quirky and eccentric film with shades of darkness sometimes hidden in their stories (eg "Sleepy Hollow"). And Depp is a Burton's reliable lead to help make his movies classic tales of escapist fantasy (again "Sleepy Hollow", "Edward Scissorhands", "Ed Wood").
Now they're doing Roald Dahl - I definitely want to see this one!

I rather liked this version, a lot less scarey than Gene Wilder.
