Baby Driver 2 could be in the works

Baby Driver could return for a second outing.

A sequel to Edgar Wright's recent high-speed actioner Baby Driver could be in the works, the director has said.

In an appearance on a podcast, Wright claimed that he had been asked by the film's studio, Working Title Films, to consider writing a sequel to the film, which is currently in cinemas.

“The studio have asked me to think about writing a sequel and it is one of the ones that I might do a sequel to because I think there's somewhere more to go with it in terms of the characters.

“I think with Baby Driver there's more that you can do in that realm, and I sort of have an idea that if you did another [film] you would subvert his involvement in the crime in a different way so he's not the apprentice anymore.”

Baby Driver has been a hit with audiences, garnering rave reviews and enjoying a successful opening weekend, where it was pipped only by the inevitably popular Despicable Me 3.

The film follows the titular Baby, a getaway driver who sets his driving and life to a constant soundtrack.

The Fault In Our Stars actor Ansel Elgort stars alongside Jamie Foxx, Kevin Spacey and Jon Hamm, with a cameo from Daredevil and Punisher star Jon Bernthal.

Wright also claimed that there was a scene that hinted at a future movie, but it was cut out of the theatrical release.

“Before they got to the post office there was this whole scene set to, believe it or not, a song by Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band. And it's a really funny and quirky sequence and I really liked it in isolation. But as soon as I tried lifting it out of the movie it made so much more sense.

“It flowed a lot better without it, basically. If I ever do a sequel, I can just reuse the scene as it was a really good scene, but it seemed to interrupt the flow of tension.
