DUNE Star Timothee Chalamet Shares A First Look At His Younger Take On Willy WONKA

It was announced back in January that Warner Bros. was officially moving forward with its Charlie & the Chocolate Factory prequel movie, and Dune star Timothee Chalamet has now shared a first look...

Timothee Chalamet will lead the cast of Denis Villeneuve's Dune as Paul Atreides when the sci-fi adaptation hits US theaters on October 21, and the Call Me By Your Name actor will soon bring another famous literary character to life as a younger take on Willy Wonka.

With production on Warner Bros. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory prequel now underway, Chalamet has taken to Twitter to share a first behind-the-scenes look at Wonka.

We still don't know a whole lot about this one, but around the time Chalamet's casting was announced, we learned that Wonka will mark the first time the actor will "get to show off his singing and dancing skills with several musical numbers set to appear in the film."

Paddington director Paul King will take the helm of Wonka, which has been confirmed to be a prequel to Roald Dahl's classic children's book. The movie is set to hit theaters on March 17, 2023, and will focus on the early life of the eccentric chocolatier.

Wonka is being developed from a script by Simon Rich (An American Pickle), with David Heyman (the Harry Potter movies) set to produce.
