Simon Rich wrote the new script, which is being kept under wraps. No direct feature adaptation has been made of Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator (though elements of it were used in both films), and Dahl was developing a third Wonka book titled Charlie in the White House before he passed away in 1990. The passing of star Gene Wilder in 2016 only cemented a perennial appreciation for the lighthearted fun and innocence that was 1971's Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
Entertainment Weekly reports King is in final talks with the studio to take on the project, which will be a reimagining of Roald Dahl's classic children's book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Should the deal be sealed, the project will reunite King with David Heyman, who produces the "Paddington" movies. Warner Bros. hopes that the upcoming film will be a golden ticket to a new franchise that stands out artistically. While it would most certainly be quite the interesting role for the 37-year-old actor, there is no indication yet how young, or old, this version of Willy Wonka will be.
"It's not a remake". On another hand, Paul King'sPaddington films are pure joy, so if someone has to helm this reboot, I'm glad it's him. I think there's a lot in his character that suggests who he is and also where he might come from or what his childhood or his middle age might have been like.
Just like Augustus Gloop when he's asked to share his candies, we know that people are fiercely protective of the beloved 1971 film but it's worth noting that Dahl himself has disowned that particular adaptation. "We're discussing it. We're in the very early stages and very excited about what lies ahead". And there's some serious talent behind it.
