CINDERELLA Star Lily James In Talks For Edgar Wright's Action Film BABY DRIVER

While Ant-Man is set to come out in just a couple of months, the former director of that movie is gearing up for his next film. Edgar Wright's Baby Driver already has Ansel Elgort lined up in the lead role, and now he may be joined by Cinderella star Lily James. THR reports that James is in talks to play Elgort's love interest, a waitress at a diner.

They also have an updated synopsis for us:

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.

That clicks with the descriptions we'd already heard, but instead of making the music out to be just a sort of cool element of the movie, this plot summary means that the tunes will be absolutely essential. Wright wrote and will direct this film, so we're hoping James has more to do than a typical love interest. With Wright behind the camera, I'm betting there will be something more than just the boring relationships that we often see in Hollywood action films.
