Edgar Wright to Shoot Psychological Horror Thriller This Summer

Glass Review Glass Review

By Kelvin Owens

If you love Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the dead, Baby Driver, etc as I do, then the news of Edgar Wright doing a thriller probably thrilled you too. Edgar Wright  told the Empire, the primary sources of inspiration for him were the thrillers “Now Don’t Watch” in 1973 and “Disgust” in 1965, shot by Roman Polanski.

“I realized I had never made a film about central London – specifically Soho, somewhere I’ve spent a huge amount of time in the last 25 years,” Wright said. “With Hot Fuzz and Shaun Of The Dead you make movies about places you’ve lived in. This movie is about the London I’ve existed in.”

Wright went on to say: “It is a horror movie, but not by today’s standards, in that it doesn’t really unfold with murder and carnage every 20 minutes,” he said of the 1973 movie. “It’s actually topped and tailed by its most shocking sequences.”

In addition, Wright said that he had already completed a draft version of the script for the sequel to “Kid on the drive.” According to him, the film will continue the story of character Ensela Elgort and present new characters.

While some fans are surely excited that Edgar Wright has finally settled on his next project as a director, others are disappointed that it's not Baby Driver 2. The director assures everyone that development on that sequel is still ongoing and that a first draft does exist. He explained that Baby Driver 2 would take the story further and expand the mythology with new characters and a high body count. And you can expect more classic tunes to serve as Baby's driving soundtrack.
