Edgar Wright's Next Looks To Be BABY DRIVER

Ben Umstead, East Coast Editor
In May, Edgar Wright left Ant-Man, a film he had been developing with Marvel Studios for nigh on half a decade. If you were a fan of his Cornetto trilogy, or just of ants and/or men in general, but especially of men named Paul Rudd, then a tear was most likely shed that day. Rumors spun that Wright would then jump onto a big screen adaptation of the TV show The Night Stalker with Johnny Depp in the starring role. Those rumors died down and what we are left with is Wright turning to another long-gestating project, the awesomely named and equally mysterious Baby Driver.

Deadline reports that this will be Wright's next directorial effort, with his old pals from Working Title Films producing. Written by Wright, the film is being described to Mike Fleming Jr as "a collision of crime, action, music and sound." Well, that sounds like an Edgar Wright film if there ever was one. Or, at least, a film.

So, for now, that's it. No further story or casting details. As it stands, can we all get pumped on that title alone?

    Well, the title, that brief description, and the name Edgar Wright all have me pumped. That's all I need to know, really. I don't even think I'll need a trailer. Just give me a release date and I'm there.
