Cruising to over $100 million at the box office over the summer was Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver, something of a dream project for the writer/director. Around the time of the film’s release, Wright admitted that there was some possibility of a sequel to the film. And now, in the light of the success of the first movie, it seems as though Baby Driver 2 is accelerating. And quickly.
Wright told Entertainment Weekly, “Those talks are already in the works. The deal is being hammered out as we speak. 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 that I’ve been offered since.”
Wright also admitted he’s keen to move his next project a little faster. “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.”
Whether that film is Baby Driver 2 or not remains to be seen. Count us as intrigued as to just what projects Wright has been offered over the past six months, too…
