Baby Driver 2 Is Teased by Director Edgar Wright

12/04/2017

Wright revealed that not only is it going to happen but it’s moving forward faster than anticipated.

 

Baby Driver grossed an impressive $30 million over its first five days of release, and good word of mouth gave the movie box office legs, ultimately leading to a domestic take of $107 million (off a $34 million budget). Baby Driver has gone down as arguably director Edgar Wright's most successful movie. Now, speaking with EW this week, he revealed that not only is it going to happen but it’s moving forward faster than anticipated:

“Those talks are already in the works. The deal is being hammered out as we speak. So, hopefully, I’m going to at least write a second one. I’ve definitely got lots of ideas. Whether it’s the next movie, I don’t know. I’m just working that out at the moment, actually. I have a couple of things that I’ve been developing, and also a couple of new ideas that I had, and all the nice things things that I’ve been offered since [the release of Baby Driver. I would like to get back on the saddle very shortly, because – slightly beyond my control – but there was four years between The World’s End and Baby Driver. I don’t want it to be that long again. I would love to have a film out in the next two years.”

Baby Driver is a 2017 action crime film written and directed by Edgar Wright. It stars Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Lily James, Eiza González, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx, and Jon Bernthal. The plot follows Baby, a young getaway driver and music lover who must work for a kingpin. The film features choreography in which the actors' movements synchronize with the soundtrack.

In Baby Driver's final minutes, Baby was been sentenced to 25 years in prison for his crimes, though he would be eligible for parole after five years. The very end of the movie saw him released from incarceration and reunited with Debora, though it was unclear exactly how much time had passed. Baby was also deafened in both ears by Jason van Horn, but it remains to be seen if his hearing loss was temporary or if it is indeed permanent. Assuming Baby Driver 2 is as musically guided as its predecessor, one would hope that our main protagonist would be able to hear those tunes.
