A decade after the disappointing and sometimes nauseating remake of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Warner Bros. is planning another movie with Willy Wonka. The studio is joining forces with Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them producer David Heyman for a film that’ll center entirely around Wonka. The movie isn’t an origin story, but it will focus on Wonka’s early adventures.
Below, learn more about the new Willy Wonka movie.

Los Angeles residents are incredibly spoiled when it comes to pop culture art events. Most of that is because Jensen Karp and Katie Cromwell opened not one but two Gallery 1988 locations in the City of Angels. Every few weeks, a new art exhibit goes on the walls celebrating either an artist or subject, usually with a pop culture theme. Lost, Breaking Bad, Edgar Wright, Judd Apatow, the list of awesome Gallery 1988 subjects goes on and on. If you don’t live in Los Angeles, usually you can’t experience these for yourself.
That’s why, in 2011, Cromwell and Karp released a beautiful coffee table book called Crazy 4 Cult, based on the Gallery’s signature exhibit. Next week, they’re releasing the sequel, Crazy 4 Cult 2, and we got Karp to exclusively explain some of his favorite images in the book. They’re based on Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Shaun of the Dead, Rushmore, Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, Donnie Darko, Willy Wonka, Coming to America, Back to the Future and Wet Hot American Summer.

This Friday, Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles will hold the fifth Crazy 4 Cult art show, an annual exhibition which I’ve called the super bowl of pop culture art. I am so jealous of all my fellow Los Angelans who are able to attend this week. I’ll be away in Texas, but I can’t complain as I’ll be bringing back my girlfriend with me (the big move, exciting). The great guys at G1988 have given me a bunch of art from the show to premiere on the site.
After the jump you will find part one of our preview, which includes a new Back to the Future-inspired piece by the great Eric Tan, Monster Squad and Better Off Dead pieces by /Film favorite Dave Perillo, an incredibly multi-level Scott Pilgrim vs. The World piece by Jim Horwat, Alex Pardee‘s tribute to a new cult classic, Rubber, and more. So what are you waiting for?
