Timothee Chalamet has revealed his first look at Warner Bros. upcoming film, Wonka.
Posting on his Twitter on Sunday the actor shared a photo of himself on set, dressed in character as the chocolatier, donning a top hat and topcoat.
“The suspense is terrible, I hope it will last …WONKA,” Chalamet captioned the photo on Instagram, paying homage to Gene Wilder’s line in the original 1971 adaptation. And in a second photo, he shared a photo of Wonka’s cane, with a purple and red wrapped present sitting on top.
The studio also shared the images on their social media channels.
This comes after Chalamet had signed to star as young Willy Wonka in Warner Bros.’ reimagining of Roald Dahl’s classic children’s book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Warner Bros. described the prequel as a “vivid, mythical beginnings of the imaginative young inventor before he becomes the renowned scrumdiddlyumptious Mozart of chocolate.”
