** Creator/GregoryPeck was first offered the role of Grandpa Joe, and he told Warner Brothers that he'd consider it. Sadly, he died before he could give his answer, but his family has revealed he was very eager to play the part. The only reason he didn't say yes right away was because he was afraid it would make him seem desperate and cause the studio to give him a lower paycheck. Peter Ustinov was also the role, but he passed away before he could give the producers his answer. Also considered were Richard Attenborough, Creator/KirkDouglas, Creator/AlbertFinney, Creator/RichardGriffiths, Creator/AnthonyHopkins, Armin Mueller-Stahl, Creator/PaulNewman, Creator/MaxVonSydow, Creator/EliWallach and Creator/DavidWarner. Liccy Dahl actually wanted Creator/ChristopherLloyd for the part with Creator/DustinHoffman as Willy Wonka.

* DevelopmentHell: The initial plan for a Broadway transfer to launch in the 2014-15 season was scrapped, partially due to Creator/SamMendes being busy with other projects and the need to wait on a theatre big enough to accommodate its huge physical production becoming available. The show is now set to open on Broadway in March 2017 with Jack O'Brien taking over the directing duties from Mendes, who is staying on as producer.
