Nothing has been revealed about the plot of the film, which stars Ansel Elgort, Lily James, Jon Hamm, and Jamie Foxx.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the story focuses on a near-mute with an ear condition who “relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game” and eventually gets mixed up in a heist that “threatens his life, love and freedom.” So it sounds a little like Drive with a Wright sensibility.
Wright has been the writer/director behind visually inventive, and hilarious films like Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, and The World’s End.
