Edgar Wright Would Direct Baby Driver 2, If It Happens

Should Baby Driver 2 happen, Edgar Wright assures he is the only one who would direct it. Last year marked the first time since 2013 that a movie with Wright's fingerprints on it hit theaters. After his falling out with Marvel Studios over the direction of Ant-Man, Wright refocused his efforts to another personal project, and one of his more ambitious. He's tackled a robotic takeover, video game tropes, buddy cops, and zombies before, but Baby Driver saw him blend car chases with music.

Baby Driver became one of the biggest box office successes of 2017 as it went over $225 million worldwide, where over $100 million came domestically. It also was one of the year's best reviewed films and has even generated some awards consideration. All of this success makes it completely understandable why sequel talks haven't died down. After previous saying he'd at least write the sequel, Wright now says no one else would direct but him.

MTV spoke to Edgar Wright at the Golden Globes - where Ansel Elgort was nominated for his role as Baby - and asked the director about the status of a sequel. Even though there isn't a deal agreed upon just yet, Wright says he knows exactly where a potential sequel will go. Not only that, but he clarified he'd be the only one to direct.
