Edgar Wright urges Hollywood franchise to 'take a breather' to avoid burnout

Edgar Wright urges massive Hollywood franchises to "take a breather and let people get excited".

The 'Scott Pilgrim vs. the World' director - who was careful not to name the likes of Marvel - insisted some big screen series need to be mindful of "killing the golden goose" through overexposure.

Speaking on the 'Happy Sad Confused' podcast, he said: "I wish some franchises would just kind of have the sense to just take a breather and let people get excited about it again.

"I feel like there are certain things that I loved that I don’t want to see again, or I don’t want to see them again for a long time."

The 'Baby Driver' filmmaker noted that studios also need to put a focus on developing new projects and ideas.

He explained: "One of the problems with film franchises is sometimes when they announce — I’m not mentioning any names or anything — when they announce like massive slates of films and TV shows […] there’s a danger of killing the golden goose.
