Baby Driver is looking like one of the sleeper hits of the summer. It is also approaching storytelling in a way we haven’t seen before. The thing that is coming out these next trailers and TV spots is that this a movie where the soundtrack is a character. Director and writer Edgar Wright talked about the soundtrack to Entertainment Weekly.
“I always wanted to do an action movie that was powered by music,” Wright told EW. “It’s something that’s very much a part of my previous films and I thought of this idea of how to take that a stage further by having a character who listens to music the entire time.”
Guardians of the Galaxy really helped bring home the idea that a great soundtrack can really add a lot to a movie. It can elevate everything to another level and it looks like Wright is going that direction with Baby Driver.
Summary: After being coerced into working for a crime boss, a young getaway driver finds himself taking part in a heist doomed to fail.
Baby Driver will be directed by Edgar Wright and Ansel Elgort, Lily James, Jon Hamm, Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx, Eiza González, and Jon Bernthal.
