Michael Cera is taking a break from the world of Judd Apatow to star in the SCOTT PILGRIM’S LITTLE LIFE movie, The Hollywood Reporter reports. Edgar Wright is set to direct the Michael Bacall screenplay.

Cera and Wright had mutual admiration for each other’s work, which manifested itself when Wright stepped in to act alongside Cera and Jonah Hill in a viral promo for “Superbad.” Wright acted as a snarky interviewer of an exasperated Cera and Hill.

  1. woah…. well it could be good. Scott’s awkward, but he’s also a little more confident than the usual Cera characters. I’m not sure how much of that is typecasting and how much of that is Cera since I haven’t seen him in enough to really judge. As long as Scott doesn’t just end up being George Michael with a band I could see it working.

  2. Michael: What do we always say is the most important thing?

    George Michael: Breakfast?

    Michael: No, Family.

    George Michael: Oh….I thought you meant of the things that we eat…..

  3. Animation would have been best.

    But Cera? Really? Scott Pilgrim is WAY cooler than him! I already don’t want to see this movie.

  4. If they have to go live action, then Michael Cera is the way to go. This news made me very happy! Great director and great actor. This could be a fun movie. It will never replace the comic but will be a great companion piece.

  5. O’malley is a way better writer than any flim-student scribe fresh off his last sh*tty indie flick. Who is this Michael Bacall? Is his stuff any good? I don’t wanna give an unfounded opinion, but his IMDB isn’t encouraging.

  6. a live action SP movie deserves a qualified actor like michael cera. he’s up and coming, just like scott and his girlfriends. plus, knives chau could be played ellen page. juno reunion! YAY!
