Also, Christopher Walken should portray Wonka's father...

I really liked him in Spinal Tap, but do we really need the prequel?  I thought Burton's off-putting adaption plumbed the depths of what the origin story might look like for a psychotic candy manufacturer.

I think they have their own fortes. Key has done great acting in both comedic and dramatic roles. Peele found his voice directing, especially horror films.

It is weird that they're doing a prequel when there's a sequel already written.

Dahl hated the Wilder version of WWatCF, so he refused to allow the sequel to be filmed. Fortunately for you, his heirs have changed their mind.

Every time I see Keegan Michael Key's name, I misread it as Michael McKean.

Any movie industry exec, script writer or producer that says "I got an idea about a prequel" needs to be fired.

These are almost always answers to questions no one gives a fark about.  Almost always.
