It looks like one unexpected character may actually return in a Baby Driver sequel if some recently-made comments are to believed. Speaking at a Baby Driver event in Los Angeles, Kevin Spacey took the stage to discuss the sequel (via CinemaBlend).
Here’s what he had to say:
“I know that some people may think that the character doesn’t survive, but the truth is we’ve already been discussing a sequel, which I think should be called Baby Doc… So I may be able to get my driving in in the next one. That’s my feeling.”
Since LRM was not in attendance, it’s hard to gauge whether or not Spacey was joking when he said this, but it’s an interesting idea to mull around. When we last saw Spacey’s Doc, he’d had something of a redeeming moment. Seen for most of the movie as an overbearing hard-ass, he’s all of a sudden struck with an impulse to help out Baby in his moment of need.
Sadly, it didn’t end well for Doc, and he proceeded to get hit full speed by Buddy (portrayed in terrifying fashion by Jon Hamm). There wasn’t a whole lot of time to mourn his death, and before we could get a good look, the film was already pushing on. So while it’s incredibly unlikely that Doc could have survived, you never know. It’s still possible.
Plus, when you have something as stylish and unique as Baby Driver, anything’s possible.
