Director Paul King has created a minor miracle with the Paddington films. Also, the film was recently remade in 2005 by Tim Burton with Johnny Depp in the main role. The script, which is under wraps, was written by Simon Rich. The director came back to make Paddington 2, which debuted in US theaters last month, earning $38.5 million thus far, plus $167.1 million overseas for a current worldwide tally of $205.6 million, from an undisclosed production budget.
Wonka was created by Roald Dahl in his 1964 book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

If that's not enough reason to get excited about the return of Willy Wonka, Charlie, Veruca, Violet, Augustus and Mike Teavee, the new film is also going to be produced by David Heyman. The report states that Warner Bros. hopes the franchise will be an artistic standout under King's direction. At present, the second Paddington film has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and 88% on Metacritic. Rich's concept is a prequel of sorts, taking place before the events of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Things can only go up for the director, and it looks like Willy Wonka could be his golden ticket to more success.
The Wonka character became so indelible in the culture that the 1971 film adaptation of the book was titled Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
