12 Oct – Timothee Chalamet gets fans excited for his upcoming portrayal of the famous fictional character Willy Wonka by sharing the First Look on social media.

On 10 October, the actor posted two photos on Instagram, one that has him wearing Wonka's trademark top hat and a maroon-coloured top coat.

"The suspense is terrible. I hope it will last," he captioned the post, quoting Gene Wilder's Willy Wonka from the 1971 adaptation of the Roald Dahl book.


A miniature present, you say?

In another photo, Chalamet also shared a photo of Wonka's cane, with a tiny purple gift box tied with red ribbon sitting on top of it.

The actor is set to play a young version of the famed character in the upcoming Warner Bros. movie "Wonka", which is set to take place before the events of the Roald Dahl book.

To be helmed by Paul King, the upcoming movie also stars Rowan Atkinson, Sally Hawkins, and Olivia Colman among others.
