‘Baby Driver’ Crosses $100 Million at the Box Office, Edgar Wright Won’t Rule Out Making ‘Baby Driver 2’

The box office stories this summer have mostly been about the industry’s overall decline, but there have been a couple success stories, including Baby Driver, which became a hit on the strength of strong reviews and great word-of-mouth without the benefit of a comic-book brand or toy company behind it. In fact, over the last couple days Baby Driver hit $100 million at the domestic box office, the first movie of writer/director Edgar Wright’s career to cross that significant threshold.

On the basis of its U.S. grosses alone, the film is the biggest Wright’s ever made; his previous worldwide box office record was Hot Fuzz’s $80 million. (Baby Driver has grossed about $67 million internationally so far.) And it’s made significantly more domestically than a lot of its big-name competition, topping Tom Cruise’s The Mummy and the latest sequel in the Alien franchise.

A few years ago, Wright walked away from his bid for the superhero mainstream, Ant-Man, when he didn’t like the film’s creative direction. Instead of making concessions he didn’t agree with, he focused his energies on a personal project he could control. And it all worked out. That’s a happy ending worthy of a Hollywood movie.

No wonder, then, that Wright keeps talking about a potential sequel. In a new interview with Vulture, Wright once again said that a Baby Driver 2 is very much on the table.

I’m not ruling out a sequel idea. It has been spoken about and I have some cool ideas, so we’ll see where that goes. Then I’ll be one of those franchise guys!

Cool ideas, huh? Lemme guess: In the sequel, Baby is played by the Snapchat Hot Dog? No? All right, I’ll keep brainstorming.
