Depp Set To Get Animated With Burton

JOHNNY DEPP can't keep away from movie maker pal TIM BURTON - he has agreed to voice a character in the eccentric director's new animated movie.

Depp, who starred in Burton's films EDWARD SCISSORHANDS, SLEEPY HOLLOW and ED WOOD, will play chocolate maker WILLY WONKA in the director's CHARLIE + THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY remake.

But before cameras role on that project, Depp will provide the lead voice in Burton's CORPSE BRIDE, which will also feature the talents of the director's partner HELENA BONHAM CARTER and actors EMILY WATSON, ALBERT FINNEY and CHRISTOPHER LEE.

Burton's last animated movie, THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS, became an instant cult hit.
