Edgar Wright’s new project is a documentary about pop-rock band Sparks

Following the success of his flick “Baby Driver”, Edgar Wright is continuing in the direction of music, making a documentary about the pop-rock band Sparks.

Wright confirmed the news to IndieWire, who note that he shot the band’s May concert at the O2 Forum Kentish Town in London as part of the documentary.

“I already shot their London concert in late May. The rest of is it [to be determined] and we’re currently scouring the archives. I have been a fan of them since I saw them on Top Of The Pops in 1979 — and when I had ‘Beat The Clock’ on vinyl.”

The band was formed in 1972, and have been playing ever since. This will be Wright’s first feature-length film since “Baby Driver”. Wright’s producer Nira Park is onboard the project.
