While riding the hype wave for his new action movie Baby Driver, Edgar Wright is looking for his next project. And if a deal is made very soon (which, fingers extremely crossed), this next project is going to be an adaptation of Andrew Smith’s super weird 2014 young adult novel Grasshopper Jungle.

Valued readers of ScreenCrush: I had the good fortune of catching an early screening of Edgar Wright’s new picture Baby Driver just last night, and while I have been sworn to semi-secrecy, I can safely and gladly echo the sentiments of my esteemed colleague Britt and affirm that holy biscuits is it good. It is a damn fine moving picture. I won’t say much more than that, and luckily, I don‘t have to because today brings the arrival of a new trailer for the high-octane crime thriller. Comin’ in hot, wheels skidding in a perfectly narrow drift, the trailer arrives with the hyperkinetic editing and blazing soundtrack cuts that make this movie such an unfettered joy.

You know an Edgar Wright film when you see one, even if Simon Pegg isn’t nearby — the distinctive (and often heartfelt) sense of humor, the impressive editing, the momentum, and the predictably awesome soundtrack, all working in time to deliver a film that’s remarkably poignant for such a well-oiled machine. Baby Driver might not be quite what you’re expecting from the director of Scott Pilgrim and Shaun of the Dead, and yet it’s entirely what you’re hoping to see. Despite some of its unexpected qualities and low-key visual style, it is perhaps the most Edgar Wright film to date.

Right now, at this very moment, there are people in Austin, Texas who have seen Edgar Wright’s new film Baby Driver. And yes, I’ll admit it, I’m insanely jealous. It’s not just that Baby Driver is the first film by Wright since 2013’s The World’s End; it’s also not that Wright has assembled one of the more effortlessly cool heist film casts in Jon Bernthal, Jon Hamm, Lily James, and Kevin Spacey; it’s also that the first trailer for Baby Driver seems to show Wright pushing his own stylish sense of rhythmic editing to the max, going all in on his visuals in a way we still haven’t seen in one of his movies. You thought you liked Wright before? Try him with a couple of machine guns a few really fast cars.

Wright is perhaps more excited for it than the rest of us, and yesterday he shared a couple pages of the script on his Instagram.

Because it’s Christmas, and on Christmas (well, almost Christmas) you share the first photos from a new Edgar Wright film — that was the real message of Love Actually, I think. Anyway, the holiday weekend is upon us, and what better way to get in the joyful spirit than with a first look at Baby Driver, the highly-anticipated new action-comedy from Wright, featuring Ansel Elgort, Lily James, Jamie Foxx and Jon Friggin’ Hamm. Who doesn’t love a little Hamm on Christmas?

What are your ten favorite movies of all time? While it isn’t the easiest question to answer, odds are that a few contenders pop immediately to mind; if we gave you an hour or three to weigh each title carefully, you might even be able to put together a list that makes you reasonably happy. But what if we asked you to put together a list of your favorite 100 movies? What if we asked you for a thousand? It’s the sort of thing that could become all-consuming, forcing you to first watch every movie that you feel would probably be on the list.
