He is decked out in the character's trademark chocolate-brown top hat, a burgundy velvet coat and a multicolored scarf as he stands behind a camera on the set of the movie.

The second image shows a close-up of his hand reaching for the brass knob of Wonka's cane, from which a small gift box is emerging.

"The suspense is terrible, I hope it will last... WONKA," Chalamet captioned the image, quoting Gene Wilder's famous line from his portrayal of Willy Wonka in the 1971 movie musical "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory."

Although the plot of "Wonka" is being kept under wraps, the IMDB website says the Warner Bros. prequel will be set years before the events of Dahl's 1964 novel "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and will focus on Willy Wonka's early life. Warner Bros., like CNN, is a unit of WarnerMedia. Daniel Craig reflects on his final Bond role in 'No Time to Die' "Wonka," which will be helmed by "Paddington" director Paul King and also star Sally Hawkins, Rowan Atkinson, Olivia Colman and Jim Carter, is scheduled for release in March 2023. Chalamet is best known for playing Elio Perlman in Luca Guadagnino's 2017 coming-of-age drama "Call Me by Your Name." He was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor for his performance. His screen credits also include "Little Women," "Beautiful Boy," "Intersteller" and "Dune."
