After delivering a box office hit with BABY DRIVER, director Edgar Wright says his next project is a psychological horror-thriller set in London.

In an interview with Empire magazine, the filmmaker said that he is prepping a psychological horror-thriller and cited the likes of DON'T LOOK and Roman Polanski's REPULSION as influences. It will have a female lead, reports hollywoodreporter.com. 

"I realised I had never made a film about central London -- specifically Soho, somewhere I've spent a huge amount of time in the last 25 years," Wright said. 

"With HOT FUZZ and SHAUN OF THE DEAD you make movies about places you've lived in. This movie is about the London I've existed in."

The yet untitled film is set to shoot later this year from a screenplay co-written by Krysty Wilson-Cairns.

Wright has said his BABY DRIVER sequel was still in the pipeline. "A first draft of BABY DRIVER 2 exists," he said, adding that it would introduce several new characters.
