Edgar Wright’s next film will be Baby Driver, a project described as “a wild spin on the action and crime genre” by Empire magazine.
Deadline reports that the British director will resurrect the project after his high-profile departure from Marvel’s comic book movie Ant-Man. Baby Driver will be put together with Working Title, the British production company with which Wright collaborated on his “Three Cornettos” comedy trilogy: Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World’s End.
Wright originally intended the film, for which he also wrote the screenplay, to follow 2010’s Scott Pilgrim vs the World into production. Deadline says Baby Driver, which is reportedly being fast-tracked, will be a “collision of crime, action, music and sound”. It is not known if Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, who appeared in all the Cornettos films, will star.
