Interview: Edgar Wright Sounds Off on “Baby Driver”

Edgar Wright has always had a knack for creating unique, fun films. BABY DRIVER, his first film since 2013, is no different.

Boasting an all-star cast and a killer soundtrack, the film centers around a young get-away driver who functions entirely around music. BABY DRIVER debuted last March at the SXSW Film Festival, taking home the Audience Award and catapulting itself into the summer blockbuster conversation, proving that audiences appreciate a film that is stylish, hip and current.

Last week we got to talk with the iconic director about the film's long journey to the big screen, that killer soundtrack, and the art of shooting in Atlanta.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
