Jon Hamm Will Play The Villain In Edgar Wright’s ‘Baby Driver’

Oct 23, 2015

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.
