Donald Glover, Ryan Gosling In The Running To Star In Willy Wonka Remake

With the rampant success of nostalgic film remakes in recent years, it’s no surprise that major film studios have been rushing to bring back all of the classics. One such group, Warner Bros., has managed to lock down perhaps one of the most exciting projects in recent memory: a second Willy Wonka remake.

The Hype Builds

The remake, which would be the third film adaptation of the original Roald Dahl novel, is already generating massive amounts of buzz. Moviegoers are eager to learn how this iteration of the famous tale will attempt to set itself apart from the rest.

Some fans have theorized that the story might explore the eccentric chocolatier’s backstory, thus serving as a prequel to previous films. This is an approach that Tim Burton’s 2005 version touched on briefly to much fascination, paving the way for a full-fledged origin story.

Getting Things Started

Rumors about the film began swirling just months ago when it was revealed that Harry Potter producer David Heyman and Man Seeking Woman screenwriter Simon Rich were set to spearhead the ambitious project. Fresh off the smashing critical and public success of Paddington, filmmaker Paul King was soon brought on as the director.

Public interest saw yet another spike when the list of actors in consideration to play the leading role was released. People were quick to respond to the news that Donald Glover, Ryan Gosling, and Ezra Miller were in the running, with headline-dominating auteur Glover quickly emerging as the apparent fan favorite.

Donald Glover Responds

“It kind of terrified me as a child a little bit,” Glover said about the original film. “It was a really scary movie to me. I mean, I watched it a lot but I was kind of terrified by it. I mean, you know, it’s a classic.”

“There’s been a lot of Willy Wonkas, so I would have to think about it on some level,” the multi-skilled artist continued. “But it’s cool that people are thinking about me.”
