Here's a golden ticket for you!

Warner Brothers is moving ahead with their Willy Wonka reboot.

As of right now, they have some big names on their list for the lead role.

The next Willy Wonka has some big shoes to fill and it looks like Ryan Gosling, Ezra Miller and Donald Glover are all possible options.

The trio of actors are in the mix to play a young Willy Wonka in what is expected to be a prequel set prior to the events of the classic Willy Wonka story we all know.

Rumors were suggesting that Ryan Gosling was actively pursing the role since he is partnered with Warner Brothers and has been in plenty of their past projects.

Donald Glover stands out the most in the list because he's an entertainer that everyone wants to work with right now. He's a successful musician, actor, writer and producer.

For Ezra Miller, he currently stars as The Flash in the DC movies and in Fantastic Beasts.

The last time we saw this brought to the big screen was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory which we saw Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka.

This new reboot does not have a release date!

Guess we'll have to wait to find out more.

A WILLY WONKA reboot/origin film is happening and the top contenders for the main role have supposedly been revealed. The rumored shortlist includes DONALD GLOVER, RYAN GOSLING and EZRA MILLER. The movie will be directed by  Paul King (Paddington) and Simon Rich would write the script. The film is set to explain how Willy Wonka became rich and started his eccentric empire. Who would you like to see play the wacky personality? What do you think about the film as a whole?
