Yet another graphic novel turned film is on its way – this time thanks to Brit director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead/Hot Fuzz).
Meet charming and jobless Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera of Juno and Superbad). A bass guitarist for garage band Sex Bob-omb, the 22-year-old has just met the girl of his dreams…literally. The only catch to winning the elusive, mysterious Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead of Live Free or Die Hard and upcoming The Thing)? Her seven evil exes are coming to kill him.
Scott Pilgrim has never had a problem getting a girlfriend. It’s getting rid of them that proves difficult. From the girl who kicked his heart’s ass—and is now back in town—to the teenage distraction he’s trying to shake when Ramona rollerblades into his world, love hasn’t been easy. He soon discovers, however, his new crush has the most unusual baggage of all: a nefarious league of exes that controls her love life and will do whatever it takes to eliminate him as a suitor.
As Scott gets closer to Ramona, he must face an increasingly vicious rogues gallery from her past—from infamous skateboarders to vegan rock stars and fearsome identical twins and if he hopes to win his true love, he must vanquish them all before it really is game over.
