One of the most anticipated returns in 2017 is that of filmmaker Edgar Wright to the big screen four years after his last film, “The World’s End,” opened. Today, the first photos have emerged from that film titled “Baby Driver”.
Ansel Elgort, Lily James, Jamie Foxx and Jon Hamm lead the cast of the film about a getaway driver who must go on the run when a heist goes wrong. It’s a film which Wright says uses music in a crucial way. He tells EW:
“I always wanted to do an action movie that was powered by music. It’s something that’s very much a part of my previous films and I thought of this idea of how to take that a stage further by having a character who listens to music the entire time. So, you have this young getaway driver who has to soundtrack his entire existence, particularly the bank robberies and fast getaways that come afterwards.”
“Baby Driver” opens on August 11th 2017.
