First Look At Edgar Wright's 'Baby Driver' Released

High Resolution Version Here
Edgar Wright is bringing his magic to 2017 in Baby Driver. It will be a different film for Wright but is sure to be a smashing one. The film will revolve around a getaway driver, who will be played by Ansel Elgort, and has a passion for music. But there is a bit of a twist involved, Elgort’s character suffers from tinnitus and the movie’s heartbeat will be based off of the music the character listens to not have to deal with the noise coming from his ears.

“I always wanted to do an action movie that was powered by music,” Wright said. “It’s something that’s very much a part of my previous films and I thought of this idea of how to take that a stage further by having a character who listens to music the entire time. So, you have this young getaway driver who has to soundtrack his entire existence, particularly the bank robberies and fast getaways that come afterwards.”

Elgort's character listens to a multitude of different types of music in the film, but we will have to wait for when the film is out to listen to all of the songs as Wright's doesn't want to say too much on them. “I’ll wait until nearer the time [of release],” Wright teased. “You don’t want somebody to go, ‘Oh, that’s a good idea for this advert that comes out three months before!’ It’s quite a wide range of music, though. There’s about 35 songs in the movie and they range from very famous to more obscure. It’s supposed to reflect the character’s extremely eclectic taste in music.”

The film stars multiple actors but one had an effect on Wright more than any other in the film, that actor being Kevin Spacey. “He’s amazing,” Wright said. “I had a slight out of body experience, the first day on set with [him]. His first scene was a big monologue scene, and he started doing it, and even though we’d done a table read and we’d rehearsed it, when we were doing a take, I was just completely lost in the moment of him talking. Then I thought, Oh, yeah, I wrote this! [Laughs] I was briefly hypnotized by Spacey — and him spitting out my words was an absolute joy.”

While Wright has been known to make more comedic films, his filmography including Shaun of the Dead, Hot FuzzThe World's End and others, this one will be more on the action side of the film genre spectrum. “It’s an action crime film,” Wright explained. “It’s funny in places but it’s not a comedy. It gets genuinely tense and threatening. That was actually a fun thing for me — to do dramatic or thriller scenes which just up the ante.”

A talented, young getaway driver (Ansel Elgort) relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game. When he meets the girl of his dreams (Lily James), Baby sees a chance to ditch his criminal life and make a clean getaway. But after being coerced into working for a crime boss (Kevin Spacey), he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom.

Baby Driver is written and directed by Edgar Wright, it stars Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Lily James, Jon Bernthal, Eiza González with Jon Hamm and Jamie Foxx.

The film comes out August 11th, 2017.
