Ansel Elgort Gives 'Baby Driver' Sequel Update: 'I Think It's Going to Happen'
"Baby Driver" will be back — but perhaps with a new name.
“He has shared it with me,” Elgort told MTV News of Wright’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.”
Talk of a sequel have been floating around since the first movie came out. After the movie's critical and commercial success, Wright said a follow-up was "already in the works."
Last year, Wright fanned the flames on sequel rumors, posting about the one-year anniversary of "Baby Driver" on social media. He said, "And who knows, maybe he could get back on the road soon..."
But even if Wright has finished a script, it may be some time before production could get underway. The director is busy with other projects, including a psychological thriller. And Elgort is gearing up for awards season with the highly-anticipated adaptation "The Goldfinch." He is also filming Steven Spielberg's new version of "West Side Story."
