Will 'Baby Driver' Get a Sequel? Director Edgar Wright Responds

Baby Driver debuted strong at the box office over the weekend, so it’s no wonder Edgar Wright has already been approached about writing a sequel.

The 43-year-old director has revealed that Sony recently asked him if he would be interested.

“The studio have asked me to think about writing a sequel and it is one of the ones that I might do a sequel to because I think there’s somewhere more to go with it in terms of the characters,” Edgar said during an interview with Empire‘s film podcast.

“Baby has got to a new place,” he added. “Most sequels you have to contrive something so they go back to square one, unless there’s somewhere deeper for them to go. I think with Baby Driver there’s more that you can do in that realm, and I sort of have an idea that if you did another [film], you would subvert his involvement in the crime in a different way so he’s not the apprentice anymore.”

Baby Driver 2 would mark the first time Edgar has followed up any of his movies with a sequel.
