Edgar Wright finds his first post-Ant-Man project

There is no denying that one of the biggest buzzes this year was the drama between Marvel and former Ant-Man director Edgar Wright.

There were all sorts of script issues, re-writes, and disagreements that ultimately led to the director’s departure from the project. This led to all sorts of speculation, rumors, and everything else you can possibly imagine in the comic book and Marvel Cinematic Universes.

Finally, Wright has put all of that behind him as he has finally come upon his first post-Ant-Man project.

According to Deadline, the director is set to helm a new film for Working Title Films called Baby Driver. There are not a lot of details available about the new project; however, it has been described as “a collision of crime, action, music and sound.”

Now, this is certainly not the first project that Wright has collaborated with Working Title Films on. This is also the same place where Wright made films like Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World’s End; all of which starred the pairing of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.

As I said, there are not a lot of details on the film at this point, so it is unknown where the story will take fans or if Simon Pegg and Nick Frost will have anything to do with the new film.

The film has yet to be optioned by a studio, so there has been no release date announced; however, with the success of the previous three films, it should be a no-brainer that the new project will be picked up sooner rather than later.
