Scott Pilgrim vs the World Movie

Director Edgar Wright is working on the movie Scott Pilgrim, a live action adaptation of the comic book series Scott Pilgrim by Bryan Lee O'Malley. It's a fantasy comedy movie. It is starring Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Chris Evans, Brandon Routh, Aubrey Plaza, Kieran Culkin, Brie Larson, Mae Whitman, Ellen Wong, Anna Kendrick, Mark Webber, Alison Pill and Satya Bhabha. The film will be released sometime in 2010.

Here below a first look at Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead respectively as Scott W. Pilgrim (Zero shirt) and Ramona V. Flowers (blue hair):

Scott Pilgrim MoviePlot:
"Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera), bass guitarist for the garage band Sex Bob-omb, has just met the girl of his dreams. However, he must defeat Ramona Flowers' (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) seven evil ex-boyfriends, who are coming to kill him.
Scott Pilgrim has never had a problem getting a girlfriend. It's getting rid of them that proves difficult. From the girl who kicked his heart’s ass — and now is back in town — to the teenage distraction he’s trying to shake when Ramona rollerblades into his world, love hasn’t been easy. He soon discovers, however, his new crush has the most unusual baggage of all: a nefarious league of exes control her love life and will do whatever it takes to eliminate him as a suitor.
As Scott gets closer to Ramona, he must face an increasingly vicious rogues’ gallery from her past, from infamous skateboarders to vegan rock stars and fearsomely identical twins. And if he hopes to win his true love, he must vanquish them all before it really is game over."

I never touched the comic book, so I don't know much about Scott Pilgrim. But the plot of the Scott Pilgrim movie sounds quite interesting. Hope that the movie trailer of Scott Pilgrim will be released soon so to get a better idea of what to expect!
