Timothée Chalamet to star in Willy Wonka Origin Story
In the news that no one asked, Timothée Chalamet is expected to play Willy Wonka, owner of the candy factory Charlie and the chocolate factory prequel titled Wonka. According to Deadline, the musical film will explore Wonka’s early adventures as a young boy. The film will premiere in theaters on March 17, 2023, by People.
Deadline reports that Wonka will be the first film to showcase Chalamet’s singing and dancing talents. Warner Bros. Wanted the 25-year-old actor so badly that he held the production to fit his schedule.
Paddington Director Paul King is expected to film the film based on a script by Simon Farnaby. David Heyman and Luke Kelly will serve as producers and Michael Siegel and Alexandra Derbyshire as executive producers.
In an interview with Collider in 2018, Heyman opened up about the creation of the prequel. “It’s a prequel; it is not a sequel. What makes Willy – when we find him at the chocolate factory making the golden ticket, where is he before that? What led him to this place where he locked himself? It’s, “How does he get there?” So we play with that.
This will be the third film in the history of Willy Wonka after Paramount’s famous 1971 adaptation of Charlie and the chocolate factory, with Gene Wilder and Warner Bros. ‘2005 remake starring Johnny Depp in the role. Both films are based on Roald Dahl’s 1964 children’s book of the same name.
