Jon Bernthal (“The Walking Dead,” “Daredevil”) has joined the cast of Edgar Wright’s new feature “Baby Driver” which is currently shooting in Atlanta.
Ansel Elgort, Lily James, Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx, and Eiza Gonzalez star in the film in which Elgort plays Baby, a nearly mute young getaway driver suffering from tinnitus.
Using his own personal soundtrack to drown out the constant noise, his world becomes threatened when a crime boss known as Doc (Spacey) forces him to take part in a doomed heist.
Hamm plays a handsome party animal, Gonzalez is Hamm’s lawless and scandalous girlfriend, Foxx is an impulsive gun-slinging cohort, and James is Deborah, a diner waitress and Baby’s love interest.
Bernthal has a key role as someone named Griff, but details are not forthcoming at this point. Wright is directing from his own script with a March 17th 2017 release planned.
