Lily James cast in Edgar Wrights Baby Driver


Still not Ant-Man

Edgar Wright promptly moved on from Ant-Man -- even though the rest of us are still sad about it -- and dove into some more awesome original content with his next film Baby Driver, which will be led by Ansel Elgort as driver with a hearing condition that makes him have to listen to music constantly. Today we learn that Cinderella's Lily James will be joining him as the love interest.

What basically sounds like a comedic car chase film based around a soundtrack designed by Edgar Wright might be the most exciting prospect in film right now. I'm not sure if James herself will be bringing much to mix, but she's definitely an upcoming star so could help. 

No release date yet, but we do have a new official synopsis, which you can check out below. 

[via THR]

Ansel Elgort is set to star as a young mute man who has an ear condition that forces him to constantly listen to music in order to drown out the constant ringing in his ears. His character is a driver for a group of bank robbers who goes on the run after a heist goes bad.
