Washington DC [USA], Dec 5 : Hollywood director Edgar Wright, whose movie 'Baby Driver' is considered to be one of the favourites for the award season, revealed he has already started working on the sequel of the movie.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Wright has confirmed he is working on writing a sequel and has "lots of ideas".
Wright said, "Those talks are already in the works. The deal is being hammered out as we speak. Hopefully, I'm going to at least write a second one. I've definitely got lots of ideas. Whether it's the next movie, I don't know."
"I'm just working that out at the moment, actually. I have a couple of things that I've been developing, and also a couple of new ideas that I had, and all the nice things that I've been offered since," he added.
He also admitted he was keen to move his next project a little faster.
"I would like to get back on the saddle very shortly, because - slightly beyond my control - but there was four years between The World's End and Baby Driver. I don't want it to be that long again. I would love to have a film out in the next two years," noted Wright.
'Baby Driver' follows getaway driver Baby (Ansel Elgort) who relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game. After meeting the woman of his dreams (Lily James), he sees a chance to ditch his shady lifestyle and make a clean break.
However, he is coerced into working for a crime boss (Kevin Spacey) and he must face the music as a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom.
'Baby Driver' won over audiences and critics alike, grossing USD 226 million worldwide while scoring 93 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.
