Mary Elizabeth Winstead is in negotiations to star opposite Michael Cera in Universal's Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Edgar Wright is directing the adventure romance, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

In Pilgrim, Winstead will play the dream woman of a young slacker (Cera). But the only way he can win her heart is by battling and defeating her seven evil ex-boyfriends.

The project is based on the Oni Press graphic novel "Scott Pilgrim Volume 1: Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life," written by Bryan Lee O'Malley. Michael Bacall and Wright wrote the screenplay.
