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.
Sometimes dreams you didn’t even know you had come true. Edgar Wright’s next film has already been shaping up as an exciting prospect, but it somehow just became even more awesome with the casting of Mad Men star Jon Hamm. Hamm has joined the lineup of Baby Driver, the new action flick from the wild and crazy mind of Wright.
Director interviews are often quite interesting, but as it turns out, it takes a director to really get his (or her) fellow directors to open up. Spectre director Sam Mendes chatted with Steven Spielberg, David Fincher, Edgar Wright and more of your favorites, asking some of the best questions — and getting some of the most revealing and delightful answers.
Many fans (including us) were very disappointed when Edgar Wright dropped out of Marvel’s Ant-Man. But, the silver lining is that Wright was suddenly available to write and direct a new, original film. That new film is Baby Driver, the upcoming musical-action film starring Ansel Elgort and Lily James. Michael Douglas was at one point also attached to the film, but has now been replaced Jamie Foxx, who is in talks to join the upcoming project.
The loss of Wes Craven is one that’s felt pretty heavily in the film community, and there’s been no shortage of fans, filmmakers and actors sharing their remembrances of the director and his influence on their lives and work. Director Edgar Wright is one such fan of the late Craven, and took to his website to share a thoughtful and moving look back at the filmmaker whose work affected so many.
You may have forgotten about Collider, the sci-fi film initially announced in 2012 with Edgar Wright attached to direct and J.J. Abrams producing. Since then, Wright departed Ant-Man and began prepping two new projects, including Baby Driver — but Collider has not been forgotten, and the project has just picked up a new writer to take a crack at the screenplay.
Imagine the most inhospitable landscape in the entire universe. A desolate place of horror, pain, and misery. This is Planet Zero.
