Whether it’s the next movie, I don’t know. I’m just working that out at the moment, actually. I have a couple of things that I’ve been developing, and also a couple of new ideas that I had, and all the nice things things that I’ve been offered since [the release of Baby Driver].”

This time around, Edgar is refusingtmakes it clear that he’s not going to wait four years to make a movie again:
- “I would like to get back on the saddle very shortly, because — slightly beyond my control — but there was four years between The World’s End and Baby Driver. I don’t want it to be that long again. I would love to have a film out in the next two years.”
Let’s put it like this, “if a sequel kicks ass like the first one then we say go for it.” We can see Baby Driver being the Smokey and The Bandit of the millennium.
