The Fault in Our Stars leading man, Ansel Elgort, joins the cast for Edgar Wright‘s up and coming Baby Driver. Even though Wright is hard at work bringing Ant Man to life, he hasn’t forgotten about his own projects, with Baby Drive next up on his work slate. Check out the synopsis from Variety; “[The] plot follows a talented, young getaway driver who relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game. After being coerced into working for a crime boss, he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom”.
Elgort has always been attached to this project but with his commitment to the Divergent series, it’s taken a while to sort out his schedule. I’m a big fan of Wright and his original projects like Shaun of The Dead and Hot Fuzz, so I’m pretty excited to see what comes from Baby Driver! The plot sound pretty cool and I can totally see Elgort in a role like this; exciting stuff!
