However, while a billion-dollar movie can bring success, it may not single-handedly solve all of Disney’s long-standing challenges. The recent consideration of selling the company by Bob Iger is likely driven by a deeper understanding of the complex issues that have impacted Disney over the years.

Artists Should Be Given More Freedom By Studios

Throughout the years, Disney has integrated numerous companies from diverse corners of the entertainment industry, while facing the challenges of tight deadlines for countless projects.

While the idea of a movie starring two Hollywood giants colliding seems enticing, it’s important to recognize that it alone won’t be the swift remedy. While it could be a promising beginning, other substantial projects must also take root to address the underlying issues effectively.

To fix such issues, movie studios must engage in meaningful discussions with writers and actors, seeking to improve working conditions for everyone involved. An essential step is establishing regulations for artificial intelligence to safeguard the rights and interests of actors and writers at every level within the industry. These demands are reasonable, and a harmonious agreement must be reached, ensuring that all parties find contentment in the outcome.

While the prospect of bringing Dwayne Johnson and Johnny Depp together for a film sounds like a recipe for a blockbuster, these two have previously locked horns to win a role. Among Johnny Depp’s acclaimed acting feats, his role as Willy Wonka stands tall. Although critics had diverse opinions on his portrayal, there’s no denying its profound impact on our childhood memories.


However, Dwayne Johnson’s intriguing statement raised a pivotal question: how would the character have been portrayed had he taken on the role? Undoubtedly, the depiction and its reception would have seen a significant divergence. In his Instagram post, the actor wrote,

“Some cool history—back in the early 2000s, iconic director, Tim Burton had considered me to play Willy Wonka in his remake, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I remember thinking ‘Holy sh*t, I’m in!’”

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory can be rented on Google Play.
