Edgar Wright in Talks to Direct 'Baby Driver' After 'Ant-Man' Exit


Edgar Wright


The former director of 'Ant-Man' is on the verge of committing himself to the movie that has several different genres put together.

Edgar Wright is reportedly circling "Baby Driver" following his divorce from "Ant-Man". The 40-year-old filmmaker is looking forward to directing the project, that mashes up several different genres, for Working Title Films.

Wright wrote "Baby Driver", which was described to Deadline as "a collision of crime, action, music and sound". The plot details are still unknown but it looks like it's in the vein of the Cornetto Trilogy of films that Wright had been developing with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. However, Deadline reported that both Frost and Pegg were not involved in "Baby Driver".

Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner of Working Title are producing with Nira Park. Either Universal or Focus Features is expected to distribute the film.

Wright made a very public departure from Marvel's "Ant-Man" earlier this year. Back in May, both parties said "the studio and director have parted ways on Ant-Man due to differences in their vision of the film." Wright was eventually replaced by Peyton Reed but his vision will still be used in the upcoming superhero movie.
