Sony struck gold with their Bad Boys for life movie. It worked exceedingly well, and gave Sony another great franchise. Sony is very much high on work, at this moment- with the Marvel Spiderman movies. But seems like there is another interesting project that they are going to go forward with.
The project in question being the sequel of Baby Driver. Baby Driver was a 2017 movie that starred Lily James, Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm, Eiza González, Jamie Foxx, Jon Bernthal and Ansel Elgort in main roles. The movie dealt with Baby, a former getaway driver, who partakes in a heist, after Doc threatens to hurt his girlfriend if he refuses. The plan goes awry when their arms dealers turn out to be undercover officers.
The movie was a huge hit earning more than 200 million dollars, giving everyone involved an enough substantial profit to warrant a discussion about a sequel. And seems like this discussion has finally become a reality as Sony has reportedly green lit a sequel for the movie
As far as the cast is concerned, Elgort is set to reprise his role from the first film as are Lil James (Debora), Jon Bernthal (Griff), and CJ Jones (Joseph). Edgar Wright who described the movie as his dream project during the original release has already prepared a script of the sequel and will in all probability direct it.
Studio will also expand the cast by adding a new female lead as a foil to Deborah. Work on the movie is set to begin as soon as Ansel Elgort becomes free from his role in Tokyo Vice for HBO Max.
Bernthal will get the antagonist duties in the movie according to the reports that came out when Wright finished the first draft of the script.
Currently Wright is busy in preparation for his upcoming movie, Last Night in Soho, a thriller based on his time living in central London. “I realised I had never made a film about central London – specifically Soho, somewhere I’ve spent a huge amount of time in the last 25 years,” Wright said in an interview earlier this year. “With Hot Fuzz and Shaun Of The Dead, you make movies about places you’ve lived in. This movie is about the London I’ve existed in.”
