Edgar Wright On His Next Project
Exclusive: Baby Driver could follow

10 July 2009  |  Written by Helen O'Hara

Edgar Wright's currently hard at work in Toronto on Scott Pilgrim Vs The World, but when we spoke to him there recently he said a few words about what he's planning post-Pilgrim - and it's not one of the films that's been rumoured for ages.

"I’d like to make Baby Driver next if possible," he told us. "On this film and other things I’ve been blogging furiously and putting up a photo every day, but I think when I do that one I’d like to go completely silent for once. Probably because it’s not an adaptation or anything, or a sequel to anything else. I’d like to just make it in private, basically."

We hoped that this might be a tale about a baby driving stuff around, but Wright set us straight: "No, you’re thinking of Baby Transporter, which is the Muppet Babies of the Transporter series." Instead, a quick online search showed that this is in fact a "a wild spin on the action and crime genre which will be set in the US.”

So is this going to be next on Wright's To Do list? Well, looks like. "Simon’s not involved in Pilgrim. And I was kind of involved with Paul as a producer at the start, but basically I can’t be in two places at once. I’m not one of those people who can do three things at the same time, even though I try to be. So once I’m doing one thing, like this, I’m only doing this. Other things – like Ant-Man and me and Simon’s next film – have all gone away until I’m done with this."

Bad news for Ant-Man fans, good news for everyone else. In the meantime, Scott Pilgrim is still filming - there's a new production blog up here - and is due out next year.
