Published

on

The upcoming movie Wonka will feature Timothée Chalamet as Willy Wonka and is set to hit theaters during the 2023 holiday season. The suspense has been terrible to wait for, but the intrigue of what’s to come has never wavered. The film will be based on Roald Dahl’s classic story of Charlie Bucket and the Chocolate Factory. It will be a reboot of the 2005 film starring Johnny Depp, but it is said that the new version will be closely related to it. Fans can expect new characters, novelties, and re-imagined elements in the movie. Simon Farnaby and Roald Dahl have been chosen to write the screenplay while David Heyman will produce the film with Warner Bros. The upcoming Wonka film is set to be released right before Thanksgiving in 2023 and will resume filming this fall. The filming process is also expected to be short for its shooting length which means there won’t be any long-distance work for the cast or crew as well as limited travel needs for insurance purposes.
