Baby Driver sequel update: Edgar Wright confirms talks are underway


It's that time of the year when you Cineworlders are frantically compiling top 10 lists, and we imagine Edgar Wright's Baby Driver will be zooming to pole position for many of you.

Wright's typically vibrant, idiosyncratic movie (his first since Marvel project Ant-Man fell through) takes the quintessential car chase thriller and performs a handbrake turn into the world of the choreographed musical, in the process unleashing one of the year's most enjoyable moviegoing experiences.

Rocketing along to the strains of (arguably) the year's coolest soundtrack ('Harlem Shuffle' has transformed our humdrum commute into work), it proved one of the summer's surprise success stories, grossing $226 million worldwide.

Much as we'd like the movie to stand on its own, part of us really wants to be reunited with music-loving getaway driver Baby (Ansel Elgort) and his girlfriend, Debora (Lily James). Well, we're in luck, as Wright has confirmed sequel talks are underway.

"The deal is being hammered out as we speak," he tells Entertainment Weekly. "So, hopefully, I’m going to at least write a second one. I’ve definitely got lots of ideas."

He adds: "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 that I’ve been offered since the release of Baby Driver. I would like to get back in 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."
