Home Indies Wright on SCOTT PILGRIM



Bryan Lee O’Malley tips us off to an interview with director Edgar Wright at CHUD where he talks about the possible SCOTT PILGRIM film. Woot!

Q: That’s going to have all six volumes, right? Even the stuff he hasn’t written.

Wright: The thing is that we actually worked with Bryan. Bryan is such a nice guy. It’s an adaptation of the six books, and Bryan, JK Rowling-style, has the plotline for the six books to a certain extent, certainly in terms of the villains and stuff, which is great. We were able to pick his brains. He’s such a great guy and I’m really excited about that, because the visual aspects of that seem great. What’s great about it is that it’s got it’s feet in two camps – it’s like Daniel Clowes with manga fights. It’s amazing.

More tantalizing hints in link!

  1. I wonder whether Wright is planning one film or a series with “Scott.” I’m hoping it’s the latter. I could see two or three, at least. The books are quick reads, so you could get nearly all of two or three of them into a two-hour film.

    If this pairing comes to fruition, I will be squeeing with joy and will be the first in line at the multiplex!
