A New Willy Wonka Movie is Coming From the Director of Paddington

A new Willy Wonka prequel movie is in the works  Warner Bros

We're just in the early stages of it, working with a writer called Simon Rich.

Great, another Willy Wonka reimagining! Gene Wilder famously portrayed Wonka in the 1971 film adaptation titled Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

Decades after the original Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory was released - and 12 years since the remake starring Johnny Depp - yet another movie inspired by the children's book is reportedly on its way.

When King signs on the dotted line (a fast-approaching eventuality, as the outlet notes he's in "final negotiations" to board the project), he'll be reunited with Paddington film franchise producer David Heyman.

But, as reported by the Mirror, she was more concerned with her little girl being present at the match. I feel like I'm on the right track.' She also added, 'I really don't know .

As I'm sure you all know, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is the story of a mysterious sadist who lures children into his locked factory, where a serious of "accidents" befall them one by one until the saintly Charlie Bucket is bequeathed the Wonka fortune. Warner Bros. hopes that the upcoming film will be a golden ticket to a new franchise that stands out artistically. He'll also work closely with Simon Rich, the screenwriter who penned the script, which is apparently being kept shut in a secret room inside Wonka's factory.

Okay, so he says it's not a remake. He was brought to life in two movies already, but now he's set to return in a brand new reboot.

Some of Wonka's past was touched-on in Burton's film, which featured Wonka traumatized by his strict father, a dentist played by Christopher Lee.

King now has Paddington 2 in theaters. Story The Witches has a script written by Guillermo del Toro and is attracting directors, with Robert Zemeckis (Back to The Future) said to have met for the project.
