Michael Cera will be flexing his indie-kid muscles again, or at least showing off the lack of them, when
Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World
is released this summer.
The film isn't due until August but we have a few sneaky pics of the poster to feast your eyes upon;
sees the Superbad actor playing the bassist from garage-rock band Sex Bob-omb who must defeat the seven evil ex-boyfriends of his new girlfriend, Ramona.
Why? Cos this isn't quite the average Michael Cera fare (read; awkward humour, loveable bumbling). This adaptation of Bryan O'Malley's comic has rather more of a magical-realism bent.
For example one of the 'evil exes' has the ability to summon 'demonic hipster chicks'. Another has tele-kinetic powers. You get the picture;
British director Edgar Wright is overseeing this one and will have a talented cast at his disposal.
Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and off-beat comedy stalwart Jason Schwartzman are all on hand to help Wright deliver the same kind of laughs he dished out on
Shaun of the Dead.
It’s sure to be an “epic of epic epicness”. Hopefully it’ll be pretty funny as well.
Scott Pilgrim vs the world
