The Timothée Chalamet-led Wonka film, a prequel to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory that will follow the young titular character, has continued to add to the cast. In addition to Chalamet and previously-announced Keegan-Michael Key, among others, Olivia Colman, Sally Hawkins, Rowan Atkinson, and Jim Carter are also now on board. Original songs are being written for the film by Neil Hannon (of the band The Divine Comedy) and directed by Paddington 2‘s Paul King. The film has already begun production with a March 2023 release date.
