It’s always good when a great little movie hits big. That’s what happened this summer with Edgar Wright‘s Baby Driver. It was critically acclaimed and did really well at the box office. Now there is a For Your Consideration campaign being run for awards season. The ending of the movie, though, was a little vague — and in the age of sequels and franchises, people have been asking for months if there is going to be a sequel. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Wright revealed that the details are being hammered out at the moment.
“Those talks are already in the works,” he reveals. “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.”
It sounds like Wright would like to get started on his next film sooner rather than later, and that he’s going to write the script regardless of whether or not the deal happens. If Baby Driver walks away from the awards season with some nominations or even some wins, that would be all the motivation the studio needs to greenlight a sequel.
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, directed by Edgar Wright, stars Ansel Elgort, Lily James, Jon Hamm, Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx, Eiza González, and Jon Bernthal. It’s out on digital release and Blu-ray/DVD now.
