The awesome English director and screenwriter, Edgar Wright, known for his films Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and Baby Driver, has shared some details about his upcoming film. From Empire‘s exclusive report, we’ve learned that his next film will be a psychological horror film with a female lead.
The film will be set in central London for the first time, specifically in Soho. His reported inspirations for this horror are Roman Polanski’s 1965 thriller Repulsion and Nicolas Roeg’s 1973 film Don’t Look Now. There wasn’t much information given, as Wright is keeping details obscure.
In Wright’s interview with the magazine, he also states that there is a possibility for a Baby Driver 2 with a first draft of the script in existence. The original film released to acclaim in 2017, starring a number of stars such as Ansel Elgort, Lily James, and Jamie Foxx. It was nominated for Best Film editing, sound mixing, and sound editing at the 90th Academy Awards.
Wright, who tends to be quite active on his social media accounts, tweeted yesterday about his gratitude for being included in Empire‘s upcoming issue.
Was a distinct pleasure to have @empiremagazine profile me in their 30 directors / 30 years series. Thanks to all the friends, family & collaborators who chipped in, all the fans that asked great questions & those who voted for their favourite shots. Enjoy the issue: out now! pic.twitter.com/pbF0OUW22a
