Edgar Wright Shares ‘Baby Driver’ Behind-the-Scenes Photos, Musical Inspirations
Edgar Wright has officially begun production on Baby Driver, and although the film doesn’t hit theaters until 2017 (ugh, life is hard), you can get a little taste of what the director is up to with a handful of behind-the-scenes images. The photos reveal a cool shooting location in Atlanta, as well as potential soundtrack selections and the film’s production logo.
We haven’t been blessed with a new Edgar Wright film since 2013's The World’s End, but that’s about to change with Baby Driver, which is currently filming in Atlanta. Wright took to Twitter and Instagram to share some behind-the-scenes photos, including this slate featuring the production logo:
That’s Ansel Elgort’s face (an artistic depiction of his face, anyway) on the right-hand side. Elgort plays the lead character in the music-oriented action flick, which centers on a young getaway driver who relies on his own carefully curated playlist to accentuate his skills. Those skills attract the attention of a crime boss, who forces the driver to participate in a heist that goes awry.
Music has been integral to each of Wright’s projects, and Baby Driver is no different. Judging by the plot description and the photos below, it sounds like we may be getting the coolest Wright soundtrack to date:
These photos were taken at the famous Criminal Records in Atlanta, where we may see Elgort’s character shopping for some new sounds.
