Edgar Wright is currently writing a sequel to Baby Driver, which is pretty rad. The original was damn fun, and made roughly a “fuckton” of money on a “relatively small” budget. So, it’s nice to see an inventive movie being rewarded with both financial and critical success.
I’m really excited for Baby Driver, despite finding the titular Baby’s face eminently punchable.
Edgar Wright is back, baby (driver)! Dude has been quiet since dropping out of Ant-Man, but the trailer for his next flick brings the goods. A stacked cast, some great driving sequences, and the typical Wright-Auteur style. Can’t wait.
Crap! I haven’t really been paying attention to Edgar Wright and the development of his next flick, Baby Driver. So while today’s news is that Jamie Foxx has joined the production, it’s also alerted me to what is a pretty dope cast. And interesting premise!
Well, here’s a way to get me to give a shit about a post-Star Trek Into Darkness movie. Snap Edgar Wright’s name on the director’s chair.
Okay, okay, okay. Let’s all move on from whining about Edgar Wright’s departure. Let’s all say the Serenity Prayer, burn our pre-made Ant-Man t-shirts, and look towards the future. ‘Cause that is what Edgar Wright is seemingly doing. And it’s what he’d want from us. (On top of burning our Ant-Man t-shirts.)
Yes, Ant-Man. Yes! Continue to mutate into some abomination. Slough off your Wright-Cornish skin. Waddle through the comedic mud of Adam McKay. But! But continue your metamorphosis! Let us not stop tweaking this script until every ounce of Inspired Auteur has been left in the rubbish pile, replaced with the Clarion Call of Meddling and Wasted Potential!
Ant-Man didn’t just fall off the Director’s Cliff. It suffered multiple compound fractures before breaking its back on the cold, hard floor of reality.
Okay so now Adam McKay has pulled himself out of Ant-Man talks. After getting bummed about Wright, excited about McKay, and now bummed about McKay pulling himself out of talks, I’m ready to give the middle finger to the whole process. Just let me know what mediocre mind you find, Marvel.
