  • "it’s an action film driven by music, which I think is an apt description.”- Edgar Wright

  • The idea of Baby Driver came about in 1994 when Wright was editing his 1995 debut movie A Fistful of Fingers, which was also his first solo script. At the time, he was obsessed with Spencer Blue Explosion’s “Bellbottoms” (the song that is playing during the first heist in Baby Driver) then began to imagine a car chase and bank robbery set to that song.

  • Some of the movies Wright took inspiration from for Baby Driver included HeatPoint BreakThe DriverBlues BrothersStraight TimeBullittThe Warriors and even the Mad Max franchise. Wright adored how George Miller did Fury Road and credited it to his detailed planning.
