Actor Jamie Foxx is in talks to star in Edgar Wright’s “Baby Driver” opposite Lily James and “The Fault in Our Stars” actor Ansel Elgort.
Wright will write and direct, with his longtime collaborators, Working Title co-chiefs Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan, reported Deadline.
The film follows a crime boss, who coerces a young, talented getaway driver to work for him.
Elgort pays the driver, who relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best. He must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom.
Nira Park’s Big Talk Productions will also produce the film.
Foxx, 47, is currently filming Baran Bo Odar’s action thriller “Sleepless Nights”, where he stars as a cop with a connection to the underworld.
The movie is based on the 2011 French film “Nuit Blanche”.
