Edgar Wright‘s upcoming horror film has found its lead.
New reports say that Glass star Anya Taylor-Joy will be starring in Wright’s upcoming film, which is said to draw inspiration from films like Don’t Look Now and Roman Polanski’s Repulsion. Additionally, the film is said to be going by the working title Last Nigh in Soho. More on the report below.
Edgar Wright will be shifting gears for his next feature film. Following the terrific Baby Driver, the filmmaker is now revealing that his next film will be a psychological horror-thriller that is in the same vein as Don’t Look Now and Roman Polanski’s Repulsion.
This film will be more of a straight up horror than a horror-comedy like Shaun of the Dead. It will also have a female lead. More on this and the status of Baby Driver 2, below.
Bond 25 recently lost its director in Danny Boyle and it is looking like the film will not make its production start date, regardless if they soon find a replacement director or not. But there is some good news. It looks like they have already compiled a shortlist of directors. According to the latest reports, Edgar Wright, David Mackenzie, Jean-Marc Valle, and Yann Demange are all in the running for the gig. More on the story below.
Ever wanted to see a sequel to Shaun of the Dead? I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you probably never will. Still, it is something that has at least tempted the minds of those who made the movie.
The cast and crew behind the movie, including director Edgar Wright and stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, recently chatted about the movie, how it came to be, actors who were circling roles (including Oscar winners Kate Winslet and Helen Mirren), the vampire sequel they joked about, and more. You can see what they had to say below.

Edgar Wright‘s Baby Driver can be best described as a musically charged gangster film full of colorful zany characters all looking to make a big score. If Wright could write music – and he probably could – they would look, sound, and feel like this movie.
While recent car chasing heist flicks have been focusing on the big action set-piece spectacle that may look spectacular but lacks spirit and heart, Baby Driver proves that you don’t need to jump out of planes (be it exploding or not) to be hip and cool. You just need a driver, the girl of your dreams, music, and the road to travel to some unknown destination.
