More Confusing Scott Pilgrim Photos from Edgar Wright
As everyone knows, we've been frantically following Edgar Wright's photoblog on the development of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. To make matters worse, I just started reading the comic books that this is based on and they're awesome, so I'm caught up in some crazy Scott Pilgrim hype. As fun as it is to cover Edgar's photos, they're ridiculously confusing and often times just weird. Take this one from yesterday, for example, the green screen ninja seen above. Does this guy actually have a role in the movie? I doubt it, but it's still crazy and very fun to see, even if it means nothing in the end. How often do we get to see stuff like this?
The newest photo that Edgar has posted is the one seen below, of a phone booth on the outskirts of Toronto. Not much to look at besides a clapperboard and a set without any actors (as far as we can tell), right?
There is actually some interesting news hidden in this photo (thanks to SlashFilm for first pointing it out). Written on the clapperboard under "cam" is the name Bill Pope, the cinematographer on such films as Army of Darkness, The Matrix, and Spider-Man 2. It turns out that Pope is doing the cinematography for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, which means we're going to get a beautiful film and not some low budget ugly mess (but did anyone really expect they'd see that, anyway?). As for the scene they're shooting in the photo, now that I don't know anything about! Of course, stay tuned for more Edgar Wright shenanigans.
