The song that begat 'Baby Driver,' a quasi-musical on wheels

The song that begat 'Baby Driver,' a quasi-musical on wheels

Is that why "The Boss Baby" and "Baywatch" had to finally leave area theaters? Calling Baby Driver's numerous visual and aural flourishes and action sequences movements is appropriate, since it functions first and foremost as a jukebox musical, secondarily as a character study, and the action and comedy are merely on hand as punctuation.

The Edgar Wright-directed crime thriller boasts a star-studded list of actors and actresses, including Jamie Foxx, Kevin Spacey and Lily James - and Ansel revealed he relished working with such talented co-stars.

Everyone in Elgort's accomplished family has a high-profile arts career - his father, for example, is famed fashion photographer Arthur Elgort - so celebrity is familiar, apparently neither carrot nor stick. "I was surprised and impressed by his connection to some of the music; much of the soundtrack was released before he was born".

He also stands out in a place like Hollywood because he's really tall. I'm a driving guy. I did four or five stunts.

It's a pretty by-the-numbers story that has its fair share of turns, but that's totally fine: the story acts purely as a vehicle (eyoo) for some of the best set-pieces I've seen all year. It's one of a couple of things that I'm developing. "So when I got cast in 'Divergent, ' it wasn't a question of, 'This is a "young adult" film series". So they didn't have to worry about Lily being there.

"I definitely get a kick out of it", said Jon Spencer. The things I learned from Kevin Spacey and Jamie Foxx...

"I have to thank Edgar (Wright), who gave me the opportunity", he said of the "Hot Fuzz" writer-director.

"I just harassed Sony and asked once a week". They were trying to give me some choreography to try to do what Baby does in the movie - to walk around, to walk cool to The Harlem Shuffle. This isn't the first time Wright has done this in his films - think Shaun of the Dead and beating up pub-owner John with pool cues to "Don't Stop Me Now' - but it's certainly been perfected here".

"And that song made its way into the movie".

How do you feel about Wright's departure from Ant-Man? "And now I can just do whatever I really want".

"I loved Gino's for dinner".

"Yes, and through dance". From the opening scene of a bank heist to the subsequent adrenaline-fuelled chases that litter the film's two-hour runtime, there's little room for levity. Considering Baby's talents behind the wheel, the film takes its cues from its main character and makes sure that everything unfolding does so with laser precision. I listened to "Bellbottoms" all the time. "I really enjoyed that part". And I'm gonna be performing!

"Because of Fault in Our Stars and the projects that I was involved in, early on, I was lucky to obtain a largely young, age 12- 24 female audience". This has led to a habit of sound-tracking everything he does, whether it's a high-speed vehicle chase or a stroll down the street to fetch coffee (which he does in a great long take where the lyrics to the song he's listening to appear as graffiti on the buildings behind him). "I just kept asking, asking, asking". Yet he felt he was more than qualified to play a getaway driver as he has learned to be "aggressive", having driven in the tough streets of New York City. "(But) I couldn't imagine anyone else doing this role. And I did talk to some other directors who I knew or came to know who had done vehicle sequences.

"Oh man, I can't stand LA traffic. [I learned] you don't need music to move people".

Baby Driver is out in United Kingdom cinemas on the 28th June.
