Edgar Wright reveals his next film will be a “psychological horror” set in London

Wright's latest will be set in Soho

Edgar Wright has revealed more details about his next film – a psychological thriller to be set in London.

In a new interview with Empire Magazine, the Shaun Of The Dead and Baby Driver director revealed his next film will be influenced by Don’t Look Now and Repulsion. He also revealed that the film, co-written by Krysty Wilson-Cairns, will have a female lead.

Speaking to Empire, Wright said: “I realised I had never made a film about central London – specifically Soho, somewhere I’ve spent a huge amount of time in the last 25 years.”

He continued: “With Hot Fuzz and Shaun Of The Dead you make movies about places you’ve lived in. This movie is about the London I’ve existed in.” Filming on the project will begin this summer.

Wright also revealed that he was continuing to work on his documentary about Sparks and hinted that Baby Driver 2 could go ahead. “A first draft of Baby Driver 2 exists,” he told Empire, adding that the sequel “takes the story further” by introducing a host of new characters.

The soundtrack sequel to Wright’s 2017 smash hit Baby Driver was released earlier this year. Baby Driver Volume 2: The Score For a Score features Danger Mouse, Big Boi, and Run the Jewels’ Grammy-nominated ‘Chase Me’ as well as cuts from The Foundations, Boards of Canada, Sky Ferreira, and The Steve Miller Band.

Vinnie Maniscalco’s ‘TaKillYa (Baby Driver Mix)’ and Kid Koala’s ‘Deborah’ also exclusively feature on this collection, as well as selections from Steven Price’s unreleased score.

Last year, Baby Driver was announced as the winner of Best Film supported by Zig-Zag at the VO5 NME Awards 2018.
