Edgar Wright has named his next project. Following on from his huge success last year with Baby Driver, the British filmmaker has announced that he is to direct a feature documentary based on the rock band Sparks.
“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,” he told IndieWire, who broke the news.
Sparks, who formed in Los Angeles in the 1970s, are best known for their songs “This Town Ain’t Big Enough for Both of Us”, which reached No. 2 on the UK Singles Chart in 1974, and the disco hit “The Number One Song in Heaven”.
Wright has reportedly already filmed one of the band’s most recent gigs and is busy gathering archive footage for the documentary.
No news on when or where we may get to see the doc, but we’ll obviously keep you posted.
