Charlie and the Chocolate Factory: According to a MovieWeb reader in Texas, the casting process has begun for the 'Violet' and 'Mike TeeVee' roles in the upcoming Tim Burton directed remake of Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory. Here's what she had to say...

I am writing to let you know that my 14 year old daughter Danielle Kirkpatrick auditioned for the part of Violet in Charlie & the Chocolate Factory this past Saturday at the Wingate Hotel in Houston TX. The only parts they are supposed to be auditioning for in America at least for children are Violet and the little boy who watches too much television. They had just come from New Orleans and were going to be auditioning all day until 4:00 p.m. When they were through with all auditions they were going to do here in the U.S., they were taking the tapes of the auditions back to London to make the final decision.

Thanks to 'Deb'
