In the aftermath of the release of Ant-Man, a film that was scripted by Edgar Wright, and to be directed by Wright (but was eventually helmed by Peyton Reed), the Auteur’s next film was quite uncertain. Well, we now have our answer, as wright has announced the commencement of filming on his new film, Baby Driver via his Instagram page.

While music has certainly been a major part of Wright’s films in the past (namely Scott Pilgrim), the teases that he has offered only suggest a large music presence throughout the film. Wright has also been given daily updates via his instagram, offering insight into the daily process of filmmaking. Along with this, Wright has suggested a very retro feel for this film through all of the posts below. What really excites me is that Bill Pope (The Matrix) is photographing them film (pictured below), continuing an ongoing collaboration that has yielded amazing dividends with Scott Pilgrim and The World’s End. Hopefully, their success together will continue.

Here’s the longline of Baby Driver (via Variety):

Baby Driver follows a talented, young getaway driver who relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game. But after being coerced into working for a crime boss, he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom.

Baby Driver Stars Ansel ElgortKevin SpaceyJohan HammJamie FoxxLily James, and Jon Berenthal in the “key role” of ‘Griff’. Baby Driver crashes into theaters on March 17, 2017.
