In case you hadn’t heard, Warner Bros. is currently working on another movie based on Willy Wonka, the character from the Roald Dahl book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory that the studio secured the rights to last year.
First in 1971’s Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, which featured the late Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka and is considered the much better of the two adaptations.
Roald Dahl wrote two different books featuring the character of Willy Wonka. The first being 1964’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and 1972’s Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator.
But if Ryan Gosling signs on, that could be the thing that gets this train really moving down the tracks.
