Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
This article contains indepth information about the 2010 movie, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.
"Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" is an upcoming film adaptation of the comic book series Scott Pilgrim by Bryan Lee O'Malley. The film is directed by Edgar Wright and stars Michael Cera and Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
23-year-old Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) is the bass guitarist for the
band Sex Bob-omb, has just met the girl of his dreams, Ramona Flowers (Mary
Elizabeth Winstead). Scott learns that he must battle Ramona's seven evil exes,
who are coming to kill him. As Scott gets closer to Ramona, amongst the exes he
encounters include skateboarders, vegan rock stars, and identical twins. To stay
with Ramona, Scott must vanquish all of them before they vanquish him.
After artist Bryan Lee O'Malley completed the first issue of Scott Pilgrim, his publisher Oni Press contacted producer Marc E. Platt with the proposition for a film version. Universal Studios contracted Edgar Wright who had just finished his last film, Shaun of the Dead, to adapt the Scott Pilgrim comics. In May 2005, the studio signed Michael Bacall to write the screenplay for the adaptation. By January 2009, filmmakers rounded out its cast for the film, now titled Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.
O'Malley confirmed that no material from Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour, the sixth Scott Pilgrim volume, would appear in the film, as production had already begun. While he had given ideas and suggestions for the final act of the movie, he admitted to that some of those plans might change throughout the writing process and ultimately stated that "Their ending is their ending". O'Malley gave Wright and Bacall his notes for the sixth book while filming took place.
Director Edgar Wright felt confident with his casting in the film. Wright stated that "Like with "Hot Fuzz" how we had great people in every single tiny part, it's the same with this. What's great with this is that thereís people you know, like with Michael [Cera] and Jason [Schwartzman], and then we have people who are up and coming, like Anna Kendrick, Aubrey Plaza and Brie Larson, and then thereís complete unknowns as well". There was no studio interference with casting more unknown, as Wright stated that "Universal never really gave me any problems about casting bigger people, because in a way Michael [Cera] has starred in two $100 million-plus movies, and also a lot of the other people, though they're not the biggest names, people certainly know who they are." Wright planned on casting Michael Cera while writing Hot Fuzz after watching episodes of Arrested Development. Edgar Wright ran all his casting decisions by O'Malley during the casting session.
Filming began in March 2009 in Toronto, Canada and wrapped in August.
Beck, Metric, Broken Social Scene, and Cornelius will all contribute songs to the soundtrack. Producer Nigel Godrich will serve as the film's music supervisor. Two unreleased songs by Beck are heard in the teaser trailer.
For each fictional band in the film, a real band wrote the unique music for them. Metric are the influence of the band Clash at Demonhead in the film and have contributed the song "Black Sheep" to the film. The clothing of Metric's lead singer, Emily Haines, is the basis for the clothing of the lead singer of Clash at Demonhead. Chris Murphy of the band Sloan was the guitar coach for the actors in the film.
At a test screening, Kevin Smith was quoted as saying "That movie is great. Itís spellbinding and nobody is going to understand what the fuck just hit them. I would be hard pressed to say, 'heís bringing a comic book to life!' but he is bringing a comic book to life." Smith also said that fellow filmmakers Quentin Tarantino and Jason Reitman were "really into it".
The film is now set for August 6 release in the UK and August 13 release worldwide. On March 25, 2010, a 1:25 teaser was released via Apple.com. A 2:30 trailer featuring music by The Ting Tings, LCD Soundsystem, Be Your Own Pet, Cornelius, Blood Red Shoes, and The Prodigy was released on May 31, 2010.
On June 6, 2010, at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, the first clip for the film was released featuring Chris Evans as Lucas Lee, one of the ex-boyfriends Scott must fight.
A video game will be produced based upon the film, to be released in August 2010 on PlayStation Network. The game will be developed by Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Chengdu, with music by chiptune band Anamanaguchi and 2D art by Paul Robertson.
