Cruising to over $100m at the American box office over the summer was Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver, something of a dream project for the writer/director. Around the time of the film’s release too, Wright admitted that there was some possibility of a sequel to the film. And now, in the light of the success of the first movie, it seems as though Baby Driver 2 is accelerating. And quickly.
“Those talks are already in the works. The deal is being hammered out as we speak”, Wright has now told Entertainment Weekly. “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 that I’ve been offered since”.
Edgar Wright also admitted he’s keen to move his next project a little faster. “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”.
Whether that film is Baby Driver 2 or not remains to be seen. Count us as intrigued as to just what projects Wright has been offered over the past six months, too…
