Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory 1.5
Short, concise description of the idea
Create a movie centering on the character Mr. Turkentine from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
Full description of the idea
David Battley's performance as Charlie Bucket's teacher Mr. Turkentine is easily the most enjoyable part of the acclaimed movie Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1975). Obviously Turkentine should have been in more of the movie. Unfortunately, he was not.
Thus, the sensible thing to do would be to make a new movie chronicling the experiences of Mr. Turkentine in the same style as Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead or The Lion King 1 1/2.
An ordered list of benefits
- The world would finally have a movie full of one of time's most entertaining characters.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
- David Battley died from a heart attack in 2003.
An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
Due to the very untimely demise of 68-year-old David Battley, a new actor would need to be cast in the role of Turkentine. I suggest commissioning his daughter, actress Zoe S. Battley, to find the perfect actor to imitate her father (since daughters rock at finding men exactly like their fathers).
