Its star, Ansel Elgort, is Baby, a getaway driver trying to go straight, dreaming of escape with his girlfriend Debora (Lily James) but beholden to Kevin Spacey's villain Doc. The action-thriller, which was shot in the US city of Atlanta, features plenty of auto chases set against an eclectic soundtrack.
"And the other important thing for me", he continued, "is nearly the entirety of my crew who were gonna do that movie sort of left in solidarity".
"Baby Driver" basics are as follows.
The film's story focuses on Baby, a child prodigy vehicle thief. While helping a motley assortment of deranged bank robbers stay one step ahead of the law, Baby spends the entire time listening to an eclectic mix of rock, rap and soul on his iPod: a tic that allows him to maintain a zen-like calm behind the wheel, while at the same time blocking out the tinnitus that has plagued him since childhood.
Baby Driver drives into USA theaters on June 28.
What would you tell people about Baby Driver? He boosted his first auto at 12, but one day he makes the mistake of ripping off a vehicle filled with illegal goods owned by Doc (Spacey). George Miller, I think, has sort of claimed a flag at the top of Mount Everest, because he is the King of the Car Chase now. Although we enjoyed the movie that was ultimately released, we would have very much liked to have seen Wright's version of Ant-Man.

CJ also made an appearance on the red carpet and used an interpreter to explain how he gave the 23-year-old tips during the shoot so the young actor could "put it in his soul". So it was really important to me to get another film going so I could kind of re-employ them all.
Her stance continued after she was cast. I was able to do the one where I gave the lady back her purse, I did the vehicle trick.
The film was originally set in Los Angeles, but Wright and his team overhauled the script after changing the shooting location to Atlanta. "I'm an athlete and I love playing basketball, and a lot of basketball is running and jumping, and I was pretty good at that".
The director felt it worked out, however, because while both are vehicle cities, the southern metropolis still leans toward the big-powered gas-guzzlers. About 10 years ago the director drove from NY to L.A., and the experience had an impact on the film.
"I'd say that I'm like Baby".
The actor-musician's provocative comments come right as his film Baby Driver is just about to hit theaters. We don't hear "Born to Be Wild" or "I Can't Drive 55" as Baby is putting his pedal to the floor, instead we get mostly deep tracks spanning many genres and eras of music. I think I probably got this part because of my musical background. There are also moments of nearly unbearably genuine tenderness, most visible in the interactions between Baby and his deaf foster father, Joseph (CJ Jones), whose admonishments against Baby's profession are softened by looks of knowing sympathy and unconditional love for the boy.
