There’s now word via The Hollywood Reporter that Edgar Wright has found his villain for Baby Driver with Jon Hamm. He’ll play a former Wall Street trader, turned cop killing bank robber.
A getaway driver, a near mute with an ear condition who relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game. But after being coerced into working for a crime boss, he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom.
Ansel Elgort will play the driver, while Lily James will play a waitress and love interest.
This project he’s been developing for ages seems very similar to Collide/Autobahn and Drive, but we’ll see if Edgar Wright’s version will differ by both plot and visuals. He’s promised a more hard-boiled action film here, trying to escape the more comedic focused features he’s previously known for.
