Edgar Wright to trade ant-men for baby drivers

While Edgar Wright has just completed work on the version of Ant-Man that will play nightly in the hypothetical arguments of film geeks, he’s already moved beyond Marvel to a newer, more tangible project. Deadline reports that Wright is closing in on directing a movie that’s described both as “a close cousin to the Cornetto Trilogy” of Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World’s End—though likely without Simon Pegg and Nick Frost—as well as “a collision of crime, action, music, and sound,” most of which could be more succinctly termed “a movie.”

While plot details are still a mystery, it is known that it will be titled Baby Driver, presumably after the Simon & Garfunkel song. Or if you like to rock, the Ronnie James Dio song. (“Baby Driver / You been down too long in the midnight sea / You’re a baby / You should really be put to bed much earlier than that.”) Anyway, it’s unknown whether Baby Driver will follow a driver who ferries around babies, or basically Drive, only with Ryan Gosling replaced by a far more communicative baby. But you have to admit, either premise has its own potential for drama. And sound.
