Have you ever wondered Dwayne Johnson as Willy Wonka? Charlie & the Chocolate Factory would have been one of the movies with Dwayne Johnson but somehow he didn’t get the role.
History is filled with cases when actors turned down roles or were not given certain roles which they regret later. The role of Willy Wonka was then played by Johnny Depp and is still appreciated.
Dwayne Johnson Instagram post with a video of classic 1971 version of Charlie & the Chocolate Factory revealed that Tim Burton considered him for the role of Willy Wonka in 2005 remake. The movie was released in 2005 which means the cast and shooting were done in 2003-2004. Dwayne Johnson didn’t have experience in Hollywood by then, maybe this led to losing the role of Willy Wonka.
Fans always crave for new movies with Dwayne Johnson. His upcoming movies include Jungle Cruise, Black Adam and Fast & Furious 10.
But considering the physique and position in Hollywood, Charlie & the Chocolate Factory doesn’t seem fit in the list of movies with Dwayne Johnson. He can be a hunk, bodybuilder, wrestler, cop, militant, and whatnot. But how would have Willy Wonka looked like with Dwayne in it? It is quite hard to imagine, to be honest.
Though it didn’t affect his career as an actor. But the revelation by him hints that he might like to play the role of Willy Wonka.
Dwayne really knows how to engage his fans and let them know about the importance of physical as well as mental health. Dwayne Johnson has left Kylie Jenner behind in the Instagram race, he has become a most valuable star on Instagram earning $986,000 per post and he could even charge $41,015,000 for a sponsored post.
