Exclusive: Sony has officially greenlit the sequel to Edgar Wright’s smash hit ‘Baby Driver.’
Wright, who has been writing the script for some time, will also return to direct with Ansel Elgort, Lily James, Jon Bernthal, Michael Peter Balzary, and CJ Jones reprising their roles from the first film.
Plot details are being kept under wraps but a new female lead, who will act as a foil to Lily James’ character Debora, will be featured.
Filming will take place this year after Elgort wraps filming on HBO Max’s ‘Tokyo Vice’ series.
The 2017 film garnered attention by bringing a fresh take on heist movies, by setting everything to a soundtrack that fell into rhythm with the movie itself.
As of now, Sony has not set a release date.
