Divergent series star Ansel Elgort has signed on for the lead role in Edgar Wright’s upcoming film BABY DRIVER. The Tracking Board previously broke the news that Elgort was the top choice for the role. See the original article here.
Elgort stars as a getaway driver who relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game. After being forced into working for a crime boss, he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom. Wright, being the director of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, is bringing his unique vision to the film. This will mark his first project since he pulled out of Marvel’s Ant-Man last year.
Elgort was recently seen in Insurgent, and is set to appear in the upcoming teen thriller November Criminals with Chloe Grace Moretz.
