Michael Cera is set to star in Scott Pilgrim's Little Life for Universal, an adventure romance directed by Edgar Wright.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Scott Pilgrim's Little Life tells the story of a young slacker (Cera) who meets the woman of his dreams but finds that he can only win her heart 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.

Production is set to begin in the fall.
