Will Baby Driver ride again? Edgar Wright mulling studio’s request for sequel.

It would be the first time the British filmmaker has made a sequel to any of his movies

Posted on

Will Edgar Wright return to the world he created in his hit crime-thriller, Baby Driver? The British filmmaker has so far declined to make sequels to any of his movies — a list which includes Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz — but Wright admitted to the Empire magazine podcast that he is mulling the possibility of a second Baby Driver tale.

“The studio have asked me to think about writing a sequel,” said Wright of Sony Pictures’ request. “I might do a sequel to it because I think there’s somewhere more to go with it in terms of the characters. Baby Driver — I think there’s more that you can do in that realm.”

Ansel Elgort stars in the movie, which finished the 3-day weekend in second place with $21 (behind Despicable Me 3‘s $72.4 million haul), as a getaway driver afflicted by tinnitus, so he continually listens to music to drown out the ringing in his ears. Speaking with EW last month, Wright said he would happily make another movie which mixed music and mayhem in the same manner.

“Car chases are as painstaking to make as they are fun to watch,” he said. “But I’d do more. Action and music — it’s all my passions in one movie.”
