"Even if I wasn't involved in 'Baby Driver' I would be thrilled, encouraged and inspired that an original film connected with mainstream audiences in this franchise heavy summer," Wright said. "I made it to be seen on the big screen and I'm so glad the audiences turned up (some many times). I have to thank my hard working producers, crew and cast for bringing this script to the screen and making a long dreamt of movie come true. And endless kudos to all at MRC, Tristar and Sony for having enough faith in my creation to a. make it and b. proudly put in the middle of the summer season."

The film is produced by Nira Park through her Big Talk Pictures, and Working Title principals Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan. Executive producers are Wright, Adam Merims, James Biddle, Rachael Prior, Liza Chasin, and Michelle Wright.
