Timothee Chalamet as Willy Wonka
According to Deadline, the upcoming movie will focus on the adventures of the young Willy Wonka, from a time when his chocolate factory was just a dream. The portal also announced that Chalamet is expected to dance and sing in an upcoming production “Wonka”, as the film is to contain a lot of musical fragments.
Paul King is to be the director of the film he wrote the script for Simon Farnaby. The producers of the film are David Heyman and Luke Kelly, whereas Michael Siegel and Alexandra Derbyshire are executive producers.
Shooting for a new production has recently started, a Timothee Chalamet shared a photo from the set of “Wonka”. It looks great as the title character:
In “Wonka” we will be able to see, among others Olivia Colman, Rowan Atkins, Sally Hawkins and Keegan Michael Key. The other roles will be played by actors known from the film “Paddington” – including Tom Davis, Simon Farnaby and Kobna Holdbrook-Smith.
This is the third time Warner Brothers has set out to tell a story Willy Wonka. The first is a classic from 1971 with Gen Wilder in the lead role, the next film debuted in 2005, and the eccentric creator of chocolate was played by Johnny Depp. As far as we know, this will be the first adaptation of a Dahl novel that will be missing young Charlie Bucket (which is understandable, since Wonka is supposed to be a young man).
