Charlie and the Chocolate Factory: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory will be available as a video game on the same day Warner Bros. Pictures releases Tim Burton's movie based on the classic Roald Dahl book.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has awarded Global Star Software, a publishing label of Take Two Interactive Software Inc., the exclusive worldwide license to develop, publish and distribute video games inspired by the upcoming film. Jason Hall, senior vp at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, said the unique content "offers a rare opportunity to create a great interactive extension of the fiction," in particular because it "lends itself to numerous ways of bringing people into its extremely imaginative universe."
