Oxford Mail: Timothée Chalamet on Wonka set

M Chalamet, who stars in the satire Don't Look Up currently being streamed on Netflix, has already been spotted in the city.

He is said to be playing the titular character as the film explores what Willy Wonka got up to before opening his famous chocolate factory.

No release date has yet been confirmed for the film.

In December crowds gathered near Radcliffe Camera in Oxford to catch a glimpse of the heart-throb.

Chalamet received an Oscar nomination for Best Actor for his role in coming-of-age romantic drama Call Me by Your Name and starred in Little Women with Oxford's own Florence Pugh.

About 50 people were seen waiting for an appearance of the star on Catte Street.

Fans of the actor screamed and followed him as he walked out in a long, hooded,black cloak and a face mask.
