Movie Bytes: “Scott Pilgrim VS the World” Director & Cast Discussion

Hopefully you have been to the movie theater recently and seen the trailers for Scott Pilgrim VS the World. . This movie incoporates a teen flavor with an old school vibe in terms of FX and also the story line that make this movie family friendly as well as date-material.

Helmed & directed by Edgar Wright (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead), this is a movie that’s worth seeing if just for the unusual way that Wright has tweaked the material of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s volume one that features a blend of story +manga + video-game iconography that were used to depict various characters and their emotional dynamics with other characters.

Here’s what director Edgar Wright had to say (and this is the same Edgar Wright I interviewed for Gather.com about Hot Fuzz)

“I first heard of Scott Pilgrim in 2004 when BRYAN LEE O’MALLEY’s recently released first volume was pressed into my hands. Given that my previous work has strived to mix up the mundane with the insane, I was hooked immediately. I loved Bryan’s use of manga and video-game iconography to depict the emotions of these young characters.
Adapting these books was a gift, as they are not only funny, charming and relatable, but have increasingly crazy diversions into the fantastical. To be able to do romance, comedy, action and fantasy in the same feature was an intriguing challenge.”
