Edgar Wright explains how Ant-Man departure led to Baby Driver

Wright was joined by the likes of Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx, Lily James and Jon Hamm, and we have some video from the carpet below.

The film, which was shot in the USA city of Atlanta, features elaborate vehicle chases, choreographed to the music that Baby listens to in order to drown out the ringing in his ears. I don't know if this is what I want to do.' It was just, like, 'It's a movie!

Those are all quibbles when stacked up against Baby Driver gets right. Elgort needed extensive coaching to play a young man who's at his most comfortable behind the wheel.

No one handles a auto like Baby, the title character in Edgar Wright's sixth feature film, "Baby Driver", opening Friday.

With its music-dependent protagonist blasting away the physical reminder of childhood trauma, Baby Driver literalizes Wright's fascination with people's emotional overreliance on pop culture as a cover for arrested development. This one is made for everyone.

"I wanted to do Broadway very badly". "So I think the idea had been there subconsciously the whole time".

The plan for one last big score begins to show cracks when Baby's focus becomes split between the job and Deborah (Lily James), a Southern belle waitress whose dream is to hit the open road without a plan. During every action sequence, the percussive bursts from firearms, explosions, and punches act like musical stings akin to a live band improvising their own notes over a pre-recorded track, with none of these beats feeling out of place. So it was really important to me to get another film going so I could kind of re-employ them all.

"Eventually, I hope I can have a career that's uncategorisable".

The film was originally set in Los Angeles, but Wright and his team overhauled the script after changing the shooting location to Atlanta. Jamie Foxx's dangerously unpredictable "Bats" comes to mind as a standout, but, as mentioned, many key players make the film what it is.

The director felt it worked out, however, because while both are vehicle cities, the southern metropolis still leans toward the big-powered gas-guzzlers.

The standout actor for me was Elza Gonzalez who plays Hamm's gun-toting girlfriend Darling. "I wanted to do something on film that I felt was iconic". About 10 years ago the director drove from NY to L.A., and the experience had an impact on the film. In the ensuing chase, this synthesis of on-screen movement, editing, and musical timing coalesces into a balletic tour de force, complete with wry visual gags like Baby hiding among cars of a similar color and make on the highway so as to dupe a police helicopter.

So "Baby Driver" was in that way a homecoming for Wright: a return to a movie he could control and to a song that's been in his head most of his adult life.

"I'd say that I'm like Baby". The only character who I felt was a little bit lacking was Baby himself - he's certainly an iconic character (his black and white costume giving us a glimpse of what might have been had Ansel Elgort been cast as the young Han Solo), but his trademark silence means he's more defined by his actions than his words - not necessarily a bad thing, it just means he doesn't get as many memorable one-liners as some of the other characters.
