WB Wonka (Willy Wonka origin musical feature to star singin' & dancin' Timothee Chalamet)

It seems Roald Dahl's estate's willing to cash their cheques but you'd still be forgiven if you're thinking Willy Wanker

One of the more memorable musical moments from the original

Stephen Colbert loves the idea of Timothee Chalamet portraying Willy Wonka, but wonders if anyone cares about the character's life before the chocolate factory.

Quarantinewhile... Will We Like Timothée Chalamet's Willy Wonka?

GTA (not the game)
Is there any word if the WB deal with the Dahl estate excludes Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator? I know Dahl refused to allow that book to be adapted in his lifetime, but it's been over 30 years since his passing. Either he left very specific instructions to the executor of his estate about continuing to disallow that book to be adapted or Hollywood is really that stupid and doing an origin story instead of the sequel that fans keep asking for.
If you're delivering a pizza to a guy, and he comes to the door naked, don't ask for a tip.

This version looks a little more sinister than prior versions



OTOH it's just one pic

Yikes! I never noticed the Alan Cumming similarity

Timothée Chalamet assures that his Wonka will not be a dark origin story.

"It’s not mining the darker emotions in life. It’s a celebration of being off-center and of being O.K. with the weirder parts of you that don’t quite fit in."

From https://screenrant.com/wonka-timothee-c ... -response/
Playing into the anticipation of the project, the star posted a photo of him in costume and an up-close shot flaunting a tricked out cane. The image soon went viral, with many people taking to social media to speculate what the Oscar-nominated talent's Wonka will be like.
