Warner Bros working on new "Willy Wonka" film




Warner Bros has acquired rights from Roald Dahl’s estate to the Willy Wonka intellectual property, with the plan to make a new movie based on the character produced by David Heyman (Harry Potter).
The film will not be an origin tale, but a standalone movie focused on Wonka and his early adventures.
The plan is for it to be a franchise with Charlie and other characters to be introduced in future installments.
Willy Wonka was previously portrayed by Gene Wilder in the 1971 Paramount movie and Johnny Depp in WB's 2005 update.
