"The sexification of Willy Wonka needs to stop."
ICYMI, the actor will play the iconic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory character in upcoming movie, Wonka. In January, it was announce that the prequel movie, which will reportedly focus on Willy Wonka's life during his younger years, was in the works. Tom Holland, Harry Styles and even Janelle Monáe were all rumoured to be in the running for the role, but months later it was revealed that Timothée would be following in the footsteps of Johnny Depp and Gene Wilder.
Little is known about the plot right now, but apparently we just might get the chance to see Timothée showing off his singing and dancing skills as several musical numbers are reportedly set to appear in the film.
Whilst we have until 2023 to see Mr Chalamet as Wonka, production is well under way. Timothée shared an image of himself in character wearing a brown top hat and crushed velvet jacket on Instagram, alongside the caption: "The suspense is terrible, I hope it will last...WONKA."
Lord. We never thought we would thirst over Willy Wonka but, well, here we are…
