Could Baby get back behind the wheel? 

Baby Driver grossed $30 million over the holiday weekend and tentative talks have already taken place between writer/director Edgar Wright and Sony's TriStar Pictures who released the action pic along with production companies MRC and Working Title.

Speaking on Empire’s film podcast, Wright said ‘The studio’ had approached him for a follow up, which would be the first sequel for the director of Shawn of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.  

“The studio have asked me to think about writing a sequel and it is one of the ones that I might do a sequel to because I think there’s somewhere more to go with it in terms of the characters,” Wright told Empire. “Baby has got to a new place.” 

So does Wright have any ideas for the sequel?

“Most sequels you have to contrive something so they go back to square one, unless there’s somewhere deeper for them to go. I think with Baby Driver there’s more that you can do in that realm, and I sort of have an idea that if you did another [film] you would subvert his involvement in the crime in a different way so he’s not the apprentice anymore.”

Wright also talked about reusing a deleted scene set to a song by Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band. 

Baby Driver is in cinemas now.
