Report: Donald Glover on Shortlist to Play Willy Wonka

Donald Glover is reportedly on the shortlist to play Willy Wonka in a remake of Charlie & The Chocolate Manufacturing unit commissioned by Warner Bros., in accordance to Collider.

Willy Wonka is the quirky confectionary proprietor within the novel written by Roald Dahl that has been relived on display portrayed by Gene Wilder in 1971 and most not too long ago by Johnny Depp in 2005. Different actors on the shortlist contending for the half embrace Justice League star Ezra Miller and La La Land star Ryan Gosling.

The movie will probably be directed by Paul King, written by Simon Wealthy and produced by David Heyman. It can allegedly be a prequel to Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Manufacturing unit,  by which the origins of the chocolate maker are explored.

The function could be one other enormous win for the Atlanta star, who not too long ago starred in Solo: A Star Wars Story as Lando Calrissian. It could even be a nod to Hollywood’s try to current extra range onscreen.
