Personal Quote:

You tend to have a lot of ideas you would like to see made into movies, yet the reality is that most things that actually become movies aren't brand-new ideas. At this point in time, the movies that get made are based on some pre-existing piece of intellectual property.

Trivia:

When he was tapped to write the modern adaptation of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, it was revealed that he had never seen the original 70s movie-musical featuring Gene Wilder. Upon asking Tim Burton if he had should see it before going ahead with his work, Burton responded with a resolute "Definitely Not!!!". See more »
