Timothee Chalame hasn’t even released Dune officially yet and, he has already hit us with a tease of his next picture, Wonka.
In the debonair photo, Chalamet is gussied up in top hat and colorful suit. A call back to the look of Gene Wilder’s Willy Wonka. The new film, Wonka is a prequel to Charlie and Chocolate Factory and will see the character with origin story and all.
In previous incarnations, we have had both Gene Wilder and Johnny Depp play the king of sweets. Writer and director Paul King stated,”it will focus on a young Willy Wonka and his adventures before opening the world’s most famous chocolate factory.”
King is the director of the adorable and incredible Paddington. So, I’m certain the film will be charming all to hell.
Chalamet dropped the teaser image via his Insta with a caption that read “The suspense is terrible, I hope it won’t last.”
In addition to this iteration of Wonka, Taika Watiti is also working on a Charlie and the Chocloate Factor for Netflix.
Wonka is set for the early part of 2023.
