Timothee Chalamet is set to splash himself in chocolate and fulfill Oompa Loompas– he’s playing Willy Wonka in his early days, and displaying his make over … which is … cool???
The star simply published a picture of himself on set for this brand-new flick he’s been cast in … just entitled, “Wonka,” which is generally a prequel to “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.” Naturally, that implies we’re gon na see a young Bill … and Tim’s offering us the very first glance.
It reveals TC in outfit, using a Wonka-esque burgundy coat, headscarf and a brown leading hot. A 2nd picture includes him grabbing a small little present. Tim’s caption checks out, “The thriller is awful, I hope it will last …”
Waiting for your consent to pack the Instagram Media.
He’s gazing slyly … kinda mischievous-like, which is likewise quite Wonka-y. It likewise appears he’ll be rocking his signature long, wavy locks– so this is definitely more in the vein of Gene Wilder‘s turn as the titular character than Johnny Depp‘s … which was its own animal.
Of course … you need to appreciate that Depp’s/ Tim Burton’s take was absolutely various– both in look and expression of the well known Roald Dahl character. Gene’s representation is the OG, undoubtedly, however we should state … the 2021 representation, a minimum of so far, appears a little … plain.
That’s not to state it will not be excellent by any stretch– it’ll most likely be strong, thinking about there’ll apparently be a lots of dance and musical numbers … for which Tim trained. Plus, the man’s got chops … although this will be a brand-new function for him unlike any other he’s handled.
Most of his motion picture parts up previously have actually been remarkable and reasonably subtle (ish)– and he hasn’t had a chance to get zany or off the wall … which you ‘d believe he definitely will need to be here. Gene did it to excellence, Depp held his own– now, Tim’s approximately bat.
Word is … Warner Bros. (which likewise dispersed the Burton flick) has actually had Timmy in mind for this job for a while, and lastly locked him down after a great deal of scheduling concerns. They undoubtedly see something in him.
No pressure … simply years of tradition and high expectations. All the best, guy!!!
