Fans of “Baby Driver” have just received some good news courtesy of star Ansel Elgort.
In an interview with Josh Horowitz of MTV News, the 26-year-old actor reveals that writer-director Edgar Wright has already given him the script for a sequel to the 2017 action flick.
“He has shared it with me. Yes, I think it’s going to happen. I think there will be a ‘Baby Driver 2’,” says Elgort, but reveals it won’t be called “Baby Driver 2”.
“It has a different title, actually,” he adds. “You’re gonna have to have to ask Edgar that, though.”
Wright, known for such films as “Shaun of the Dead” and “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World”, has never directed a sequel, so a “Baby Driver” followup would be his first.
“It is one of the ones that I might do a sequel to because I think there is somewhere more to go with it in terms of the characters, especially Baby,” Wright said in a recent interview with the Empire podcast.
“[With] most sequels, you have to contrive something so they go back to square one, unless there’s somewhere deeper for them to go,” he added. “I think with ‘Baby Driver’ there’s more that you can do in that realm, and I sort of have an idea that if you did another one you would subvert his involvement in the crime in a different way so he’s not kind of the apprentice anymore.”
