If ever there were a reason to look forward to the future, it’s Edgar Wright’s new movie Baby Driver, a musically-driven action movie starring Ansel Elgort, Jamie Foxx, and Jon Hamm. 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.
SXSW really isn’t slouching with this year’s film festival programming (they rarely do), and today brings even more exciting additions to the lineup, including a pair of our most highly-anticipated films of 2017: Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver and Ben Wheatley’s Free Fire. The latest programming announcement also includes several intriguing indies, new films from Joe Swanberg and Evan Katz, and documentaries featuring beloved icons like Bill Nye and the Muppets.
Everything in the real world is just terrible, but it’s okay because Edgar Wright is finally coming out with a new movie after four years and it looks, well, fantastic. Baby Driver, starring Jamie Foxx, Ansel Elgort, Jon Hamm, Lily James, Jon Bernthal, and Kevin Spacey is currently in post-production, and here are a few new stills to tide us all over until it hits theaters.
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.
You lied to me, Shrek 4 poster. YOU LIED TO ME!!!
As evidenced by a handful of set photos posted last week, Edgar Wright is currently in production on Baby Driver, his long-awaited follow-up to The World’s End. The seemingly music-centric action flick has assembled an excellent cast, but Wright isn’t quite done adding to the lineup just yet, as Daredevil star Jon Bernthal has also signed on to star in the upcoming film.
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.
It’s been a few years since we had a new film from Edgar Wright, but we’re about to see a whole lot more from the director. In addition to filming his upcoming action film Baby Driver and developing Fortunately, the Milk with Johnny Depp, Wright has set his sights on directing his first animated feature. Tis the season to be thankful, and we’re definitely thankful for this.
Early trailers and buzz for Black Mass indicated that the gangster drama would mark a much-needed return to form for Johnny Depp; unfortunately, as some rightfully assumed, that wasn’t quite so. But if anyone can get the best out of Depp, it might be Edgar Wright, who is teaming up with the actor for Fortunately, the Milk, an adaptation of a children’s book by Neil Gaiman.
