First Official Photo (Sort Of) from Edgar Wright's Scott Pilgrim
If you were following the shooting of Edgar Wright's Scott Pilgrim vs. the World at all earlier this year, you probably know that Wright has been running a photo blog on his website, updating it with new photos every single day. But until today, he's been keeping everything a secret and not revealing anything from the movie that shouldn't be seen yet. His latest photo is a photo of a photo - not as confusing as you'd think. Our friends at SlashFilm did a bit of Photoshop work on it and whipped up a straight-on version of this first real photo of the Scott Pilgrim cast as seen below. If you're a Scott Pilgrim fan, you definitely need to see this!
I immediately got a huge grin on my face looking at this because these characters finally look exactly like they do in Bryan Lee O'Malley's comic. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is directed by brilliant British filmmaker Edgar Wright, of cult classics Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz previously. The screenplay was co-written by Edgar Wright and actor Michael Bacall and is based on the Oni Press comic book series of the same name. The story follows a Canadian boy named Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) who must defeat his new girlfriend's seven evil ex-boyfriends in order to win her heart. I can't freakin' wait to see a trailer for this soon as well!
