Ryan Gosling has been tipped to play a young Willy Wonka

scandal 10/07/2017

At some point we've all wished that the Chocolate Factory was a real place...

Chocolate river, giant candy, whole lot of lollipops and did we mention chocolate river? yeah, that sounds like us right there.

And it seems like the factory is about to get so much sweeter because rumours are Ryan Gosling is going to be the next Willy Wonka!

A new prequel is in the works that will tell the story of how Willy Wonka met his Oompa Loompas. Warner Bros are apparently looking for an actor between 29 and 35, but even though Mr Gosling is 36 he is definitely the man for the role (plus the internet thinks so too).
