Immediately after the success of the movie, fans are anticipating the return of the charismatic driver Baby on the track. So, when this long awaited sequel is coming out? Let’s take a look at all the information we have gathered.
Is Edgar Wright working on the script of Baby Driver yet?
You will be happy to know that Edgar Wright has already started working on the script of Baby Driver 2. In fact, he has confirmed that he has started writing the script since 2017. In an interview with MTV, he revealed that he already knows what the plot is about and who the plot involves and that part excites him the most. Needless to say, his statement made the fans more curious and eager to know the plot. Wright also said that they have also started negotiating the contract for the sequel of Baby Driver.
In the same interview with MTV, he confirmed that he is going to direct the movie as well. In this matter, he playfully said, “I’m not going to spend six months writing it and then not direct it”. In an interview with Variety, Wright said that he has written and completed three drafts for Baby Driver 2. In 2019, Ansel Elgort, who played “Baby” in Baby Driver, stated that the filmmakers had already shown him the draft of the script. Even though the script of the sequel is almost complete, we have not heard about its further progress for a while now. This is making the fans more anxious to know the official release date of Baby Driver 2.
The Release Date of Baby Driver 2
From all the information we have gathered, it is evident that the sequel is still in the phase of early development. There is no official announcement of its release date yet. We might have to wait for years before Baby Driver 2 appears with all its glory. The good part is that they have already started taking initiative. We are definitely going to see Baby back on the big screen.
Who are the probable casts for Baby Driver 2
Now that we know Baby Driver is definitely returning with its sequel, we are becoming more and more curious about its casting. However, as the movie is still in its early development phase, there is no information available regarding which actors from the original movie will be returning and who will be the new additions. As some of the original cast members ended up getting killed in the first movie, it is clear that they will not return for Baby Driver 2.
But we are expecting to see Ansel Elgort as Baby in the sequel as well. From his statement about knowing the script of Baby Driver 2, we can stay assured that he is definitely returning for the titular role. Apart from Baby, we are rooting for Lily James to return for the role of Deborah, Baby’s love interest, and C.J. Jones as Joseph, Baby’s foster father. We are also expecting to see some new faces for this sequel to add up to the excitement.
Even if there is a possibility that we have to wait for a while before we get the sequel, we fans are really excited about it.
