Sam Mendes, the Oscar-winning film-maker, is returning to the West End with a musical version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

The production, which is set to open next June, includes new songs by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, who wrote the musical Hairspray.

Roald Dahl's 1964 novel, which tells the story of Charlie Bucket's visit to Willy Wonka's mysterious factory, has twice been made into hit films.

The 1971 film starred Gene Wilder as the mysterious Mr Wonka, with Johnny Depp taking the role in the 2005 re-make.

Mendes is currently working on the new James Bond film. His first film, American Beauty, won five Oscars including Best Director and Best Picture.
