NEWS: Scott Pilgrim VS. The World Update...

There is a little film that is in the works, that has been buzzing around the web like the indie graphic novel bug that it is. The film is called Scott Pilgrim VS. The World, and is based on the Scott Pilgrim graphic novel series.

Thanks to Wikipedia for the synopsis on the series, which I have yet to check out...

The series is about 24-year-old Canadian Scott Pilgrim, a slacker, hero, wannabe-rockstar, who is living in Toronto and playing bass in the band "Sex Bob-Omb." He falls in love with American delivery girl Ramona V. Flowers, but must defeat her seven "evil ex-boyfriends[1]" in order to date her.

Now, that sounds like a really fun story right? To me it does at least. However, what makes the film adaptation all the more interesting, is the man behind it, Shaun of The Dead/Hot Fuzz helmer, Edgar Wright.

Recently, he has been releasing a bunch of cast photos, probably at least one a day, on his photoblog. Most recently, there was a cryptic photo of a man standing behind a set of blinds, with a paper adorned with a question mark. Now, there has been a ton of hype that the mystery man is Jason Schwartzman, and if that's the case, then lock me in my seat, but the rest of the cast is pretty solid also.

I'm just saying, be on the look out for more informatino on this film as it comes...

Go see something good!
