Edgar Wright

Following a departure from Marvel's Ant-Man (now in the hands of director Peyton Reed), it was thought that Edgar Wright might shift to the gestating adaption of Nightstalker. However, it turns out a completely different project might be in his immediate future as Deadline reports that he's looking to focus on his own original script Baby Driver, a project that first surfaced all the way back in 2009. And it sounds like the film will have him working with Working Title yet again, the company behind Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World's End. But the real question is what is this oddly titled film even about?

We don't know anything about the plot, but  the report describes it as being "a collision of crime, action, music and sound.” Honestly, that just sounds like a general description for almost any Wright film. However, the crime angle would be something new, even compared to Hot Fuzz. And the title Baby Driver sounds like it could easily be a nickname for someone caught up in a criminal underworld. Either way, it's an original script, and that's refreshing knowing how his collaboration with Marvel turned out. No matter what Wright's next project turns out to be, you can bet we'll be excited about it.

Of course I'm on board with whichever project he chooses to do next, but I'm really happy that this will be an original script of his!
