Baby Driver Director To Adapt Book About 90s-Obsessed Robot Dentist
Edgar Wright is attached to direct Set My Heart To Five, a movie about a nostalgic android.
Edgar Wright (Baby Driver, Hot Fuzz, Scott Pilgrim vs The World) has been attached to direct an adaptation of the upcoming novel Set My Heart To Five. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the book and film will be about a robot learning how to love, and the script will be adapted by the book's author, Simon Stephenson.
Set My Heart To Five will be set in 2054, and will be about Jared, an android dentist who makes it his mission to invest robots with feelings after he becomes obsessed with films from the 80s and 90s. Jared will set out to find his creator and write a script that will "change the world."
The book is set to debut later in 2020, if you want to read it before the film gets made.
Edgar Wright's next film, currently in post-production, is Last Night in Soho, which is a horror-thriller about a time-traveling fashion designer. It's due to release September 17, 2020, and stars Anya Taylor-Joy and Thomasin McKenzie. He also has plans for a Baby Driver sequel.
Fans of Edgar Wright's work might be pleased to see the stars of Shaun of the Dead parodying a scene from the movie in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. You can also find him as an NPC in Death Stranding.
