Edgar Wright Finds New Film Following ‘Ant-Man’ Exit

Following his very public departure from directing Marvel’s “Ant-Man,” Edgar Wright now looks ready to move on as he is in talks to direct “Baby Driver” for Working Title Films.

The plot details are vague other than it would be in the vein of his Cornetto Trilogy he made with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.

Wright will pen the script with Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner producing with Nira Park.

After Wright left “Ant-Man” due to creative differences, the industry was eager to see what film he would come on to next given he had so many films in development including the Disney pic “The Night Stalker” which Johnny Depp is attached to star in.

Wright is repped by CAA, Independent Talent and Anonymous Content. Deadline Hollywood first reported the news.
