The question is, who would be the ~perf~ actor to bring the #iconic candyman to life (again)?
According to That Hashtag Show, Ryan Gosling is currently in the lead to nab the role!
Warner Bros is reportedly on the lookout for a lead star between the ages of 29 and 35 and the Gos would be ideal (even though he's 36).
The flick is being produced by David Heyman who also worked on the Harry Potter flicks so you know Willy Wonka is in safe hands!
The movie company inked a deal with the fam of the late Roald Dahl (the magic man behind the OG book) for the film which will focus on Willy Wonka's earlier adventures.
They're hoping that the flick will branch out into a franchise of Willy Wonka films which will later introduce Charlie and the other characters.
The old school tale was last rebooted in 2005 in the form of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory starring Johnny Depp (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) and AnnaSophia Robb (The Carrie Diaries).
All we can say is that we reaaaaaaaaally hope the producers roll with Ryan for the lead.
We reckon he'd make a sweet AF Willy Wonka!
