Edgar Wright is a director, screenwriter, producer and actor hailing from Poole in Dorset, England, known for his fast-paced editing style, wry sense of humor and parodying cinematic tropes. A fan of action movies, Wright likes to synchronize music to the kinetic movement he depicts on screen as seen in 2004’s zombie horror mash-up Shaun of the Dead, 2010’s bittersweet Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and 2013’s The World’s End. Wright’s latest movie, the star-studded Baby Driver, sees him once again flipping familiar tropes, and, propelled by the protagonist’s beloved iPod, it became the surprise summer blockbuster of 2017.
