Baby Driver isn’t the first Edgar Wright film to spur talk of a sequel, but it is the first time that the director has been open to making a follow-up to one of his features. Wright previously revealed that Sony had asked him to consider a sequel to his wonderful action-musical, and according to a new interview, he’s close to signing a deal with the studio to at least write the screenplay for Baby Driver 2. He also has some thoughts on the recent sexual misconduct allegations against Kevin Spacey, who played the villain in the first film.
Female directors can’t seem to break into Star Wars, but that doesn’t mean Hollywood’s not looking for more and more these days. The latest to make her debut is Courtney Hoffman, who is best known as a costume designer for Baby Driver, The Hateful Eight, and Captain Fantastic. Hoffman has landed a much sought-after gig directing Ruthless, the script for which launched a competitive bidding war back in February.
