We Talk Baby Driver, Cars and Music with Edgar Wright, Lily James and more!

For many, including myself, when Edgar Wright releases a new film it is cause for celebration. And yes, the hype is real regarding his latest feature. BABY DRIVER is exactly what I was hoping for, a fast paced flick with humor and a ton of incredible car sequences. This is part action movie, part crime thriller and yes, kind of a musical. Not in the traditional sense mind you, but let’s just say that music is a huge factor in the story and the style. And don’t forget how great this cast is. You have Ansel Elgort, Lily James, Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm, Eiza Gonzalez and Jamie Foxx. This is terrific cast, and the soundtrack is pure delight.

We recently sat down with Edgar as well as a few of the cast, and I was revved up to talk BABY DRIVER. First, I sat down with the stunning Lily James and Eiza Gonzalez. Eiza discussed getting the chance to get in the back seat of speeding cars and carrying big guns. And Lily talked about her accent and how she found that sweet Atlanta sound. They two also discussed the music that was played on set. You really can’t do much better than sitting with these two incredible talents. And I have to say, both Eiza and Lily are two of the most charming talents you can talk to, both charming and funny. It was a real pleasure.

Next up, Ansel, Jon and Jamie and all three guys were great. Ansel talked about his knowledge of cars, and how they made it look so bad ass with him in the driver’s seat. Jon and Jamie, who both take on different kinds of roles, talked about how Edgar thinks outside the box when it comes to casting. The three gentlemen are, as well as Lily and Eiza, are so damn good in this flick. The casting is perfect on every level.

And finally, we sat down with Mr. Edgar Wright himself. As a fan of his work, it is exciting to see the man continue to create wonderfully inspired features. During our discussion we talked about Baby’s jacket - I happened to wear something that is about as close as you can get. He also talked practical car chases, inspiration and more. The man knows his stuff, and BABY DRIVER is about as cool a flick as you are likely to see this year. Put the key in the ignition, and speed over to your local cinema this Friday when BABY comes to town.
