There’s something funnier about physical gag comedy. Almost all comedies these days are full of conversational humor, full of jokes that characters retort back to one another in an effort to make those comedies all the more hilarious. And then there’s Edgar Wright’s films, like Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, and more. If there’s only one thing that could be said about those films, it’s that they use physical humor to make you laugh and possibly choke on that popcorn.
That choking is exactly why we’re excited for Baby Driver, a new film he wrote and directed, starring Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm, Ansel Elgort, and Jamie Foxx. The film revolves around a crime boss who forces a getaway driver to work for him as one of his employees is a trigger-happy cop killer. Spacey will play the crime lord who has worked his way up to earn that name, while Hamm will play the bank robber who kills cops, and Elgort will play the young getaway driver. Lily James will also play a waitress who acts as the love interest for Elgort, all the while Foxx is signed onto the project but his role is unknown at the current moment.
The film is set to come out March 17, 2017, however, so we’ll have a while to wait before it comes out.
