First pictures of Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka!

The thumbnail shows Johnny Depp in costume as Willy Wonka, doing exterior shooting for Tim Burton’s CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY. Deppheads have been intensely curious about the Willy Wonka “look,” and now that CATCF shooting has moved from closed sets at Pinewood Studios to exterior shots, the paparazzi have finally captured their elusive prey. The Zone thanks My Man Depp, who posted the original news story (with a grainy black-and-white photo) from the UK Sun; you can read the story here, and Emma, who posted links to two color photos on the Recent Pics board. To date, the best description of Johnny’s Wonka look comes from Zoner Veronica, who observed, “Johnny looks like the Mad Hatter gone Mafia.”
