Michael Cera Speaks On ‘Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World’
ComicMix previously reported that Michael Cera was in negotiations to star in a film adaptation of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Scott Pilgrim series. Now Cera has spoken out about his role in the film, which also has an official title: Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World.
Cera will star as the titular character in the film, which is being adapted by Edgar Wright (Spaced, Shaun of the Dead). When asked about working on the project, Cera brought the love:
“I love the graphic novels, they’re amazing,” gushed Cera. “The first time I met Edgar, we hung out in Toronto with Bryan Lee O’Malley, and he showed me pages from the fourth book that hadn’t come out yet. It was awesome!”
“Scott’s a dreamer, I guess, so it’s a bit of a change. I’m really excited to do it and work with Edgar – he’s someone who’s really funny and an awesome guy.”
According to Cera, the parties involved hope to begin filming the movie this fall, although the actor’s strike could potentially affect when shooting begins.
