Director Edgar Wright has confirmed that work has begun on a Baby Driver sequel.
The acclaimed action film was released in June of this year, directed by Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz filmmaker Wright and starring an ensemble cast that included Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx, Lily James, Eiza González and Jon Bernthal. Baby Driver came second in NME‘s best films of 2017.
Wright has now told Entertainment Weekly that talks are “already in the works” for Baby Driver 2 and that “the deal is being hammered out as we speak”.
“Hopefully, I’m going to at least write a second one,” he added. “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”.
Wright also said that he’s keen to start work on his next project as soon as possible: “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”.
