Wonka is directed by Paul King director of Paddington & he co-wrote the script with Simon Farnaby.

In an interview with Vogue, Chalamet has said that he was interested in playing Willy Wonka due to the fact that it would appeal to a younger audience, saying.

“To work on something that will have an uncynical young audience, that was just a big joy.” That’s why I was drawn to it. In a time and climate of intense political rhetoric, when there’s so much bad news all the time, this is hopefully going to be a piece of chocolate.”
