In addition to Chalamet and Carter, the film also stars Keegan-Michael Key, Rowan Atkinson, Sally Hawkins and Olivia Colman. It's directed by Paul King, and it serves as a companion piece to Dahl’s book and the classic 1971 film starring Gene Wilder.
While speaking with Vogue magazine, Chalamet described his character as one who's "full of joy and hope and desire to become the greatest chocolatier." He also revealed that he was eager to work on the project because of its refreshingly positive tone.
He said, “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.”
Something tells us we're in for a sweet treat this December.
