Ansel Elgort Says 'Baby Driver' Sequel Will Probably Happen!

Ansel Elgort Says 'Baby Driver' Sequel Will Probably Happen!

Ansel Elgort says Baby Driver 2 has a script and a title!

The Divergent star told MTV News (via CinemaBlend) that he has read the whole script.

Ansel‘s Baby Driver was released in summer 2017, earning $226 million worldwide and making it director Edgar Wright‘s highest-earning movie at the box office.

“He has shared it with me,” Ansel said about Edgar‘s script. “Yes, I think it’s going to happen. I think there will be a Baby Driver 2. It has a different title, actually. You’re gonna have to have to ask Edgar that, though.”

Though Edgar has never directed a traditional sequel before, he is eager to do one for Baby Driver.

“It is one of the ones that I might do a sequel to because I think there is somewhere more to go with it in terms of the characters, especially Baby,” Edgar said. “[With] most sequels, you have to contrive something so they go back to square one, unless there’s somewhere deeper for them to go. 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 one you would subvert his involvement in the crime in a different way so he’s not kind of the apprentice anymore.”

Production on Baby Driver 2 is not likely to begin anytime soon, though, as Ansel Elgort is currently filming for West Side Story and will soon hit the promo trail for The Goldfinch. Edgar Wright is currently filming Last Night in Soho.
