Edgar Wright is setting his sights on Baby Driver, after stepping away from Ant-Man.
The English filmmaker is in talks to direct the film, which he has also written, following his exit from the Marvel movie, reported Deadline.
He will team up with Working Title Films, the company behind his, Nick Frost and Simon Pegg's Cornetto trilogy - Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World's End.
While details are being kept under wraps about Baby Driver, which has been in development for over six years, it is thought to be an action film or crime thriller with a musical element.
The project is still in early stages, with no cast nor a film studio backing announced. It is also not known if Edgar's collaborators Simon and Nick would appear.
Edgar announced his "amicable" departure from Ant-Man in May, citing creative "differences".
The joint statement said: "Marvel and Edgar Wright jointly announced today that the studio and director have parted ways on Marvel's Ant-Man due to differences in their vision of the film. The decision to move on is amicable and does not impact the release date on July 17, 2015. A new director will be announced shortly."
