Golden Globe and BAFTA award-winning British actor Hugh Grant was spotted on the set of the movie “Wonka” starring young star Timothée Chalamet. Grant’s name was not included in the cast of the movie. It is said that the famous actor was later included in the project and will play a surprise role.
“Wonka”, directed by Paul King, will tell about the youth of the character Willy Wonka, created by writer Roald Dahl and seen in the films “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory” in 1971 and “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” in 2005. Willy Wonka was played by Gene Wilder in the 1971 movie and Johnny Depp in 2005.
In addition to Timothée Chalamet, the screenplay of the film, which stars Olivia Colman, Sally Hawkins, Rowan Atkinson, Tom Davis, Keegan-Michael Key, was written by Simon Farnaby and Co-authored by Paul King. It is known that the movie will tell the story of Willy Wonka’s meeting with the “Oompa-Loompa”, fantastic creatures he later worked in the chocolate factory, during one of his adventures at a young age.
Although there are rumors that Hugh Grant, who was displayed on the set of the movie, will appear in the role of Oompa-Loompa, we do not have any definite information about this yet. The charismatic actress, who left her mark on a period with romantic comedies such as “Notting Hill” and “Bridget Jones’s Diary”, most recently starred in Guy Ritchie’s movie “Operation Fortune: Ruse de guerre” shot in Turkey. The movie will be released on March 18.
