Jamie Foxx Gets Ready To Roll With Edgar Wright’s ‘Baby Driver’

Jamie Foxx Gets Ready To Roll With Edgar Wright’s 'Baby Driver'

In light of the “Ant-Man” debacle, we’ve had to wait a little longer than we would’ve liked for Edgar Wright‘s next movie. It has been a couple of years since his apocalypse comedy “The World’s End,” but the good news is that he’s back with a new movie, one that hopefully won’t require a compromise of his vision.

Deadline reports that Jamie Foxx has joined Ansel Elgort and Lily James in “Baby Driver.” The music-driven movie follows a getaway driver (Elgort) who works for Foxx’s character and who has to deal with the consequences when a heist goes wrong. Sounds like the sort of lean, mean genre premise that Wright can really put his stamp on, so color me very, very curious. 

“Baby Driver” isn’t due in cinemas until March 17, 2017, but here’s looking to Wright coming roaring back.
