3 Board Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World
Chris Evans, Brandon Routh and Brie Larson have boarded Universal's Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World, Edgar Wright's adaptation of the cult favorite Oni Press graphic novels.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World centers on young slacker Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera), who meets the woman of his dreams (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) but finds he can win her heart only by battling and defeating her seven evil ex-boyfriends.
The books, by Bryan Lee O'Malley, feature romance, teen angst and plenty of fantastical action involving a large supporting cast. The fifth installment of the book series will be published in February.
Evans plays evil boyfriend No. 2, Lucas Lee, a pro skateboarder-turned-movie star, while Routh plays the third evil boyfriend, Todd Ingram, a rocker with vegan psychic powers.
Larson plays Pilgrim's ex-girlfriend, Envy Adams, for whom he still has feelings.
Also joining the pic are Mae Whitman as Roxy Richter, the fourth ex, a female who is half-ninja; Ellen Wong as Knives Chau, who Pilgrim is dating when he meets his dream girl; and Anna Kendrick as Pilgrim's sister.
Mark Webber plays Stephen Stills, a member of Pilgrim's rock band. Alison Pill is the band's drummer and Johnny Simmons is Young Neil, the band's biggest fan. Aubrey Plaza plays Webber's on-again off-again girlfriend.
Satya Bhabha plays an ex-boyfriend who can summon demon hipster girls at will.
Production will begin shortly in Toronto.
