Director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) has been posting numerous behind-the-scenes photos from his new film Scott Pilgrim vs The World on his official website. Principal photography for the film began this week in Toronto and aside from the few hastily snapped paparazzi photos (which have disappeared from the web), Wright’s daily barrage of photos have been the first real look we’ve had at the movie.
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is based off the comics of Canadian cartoonist Bryan Lee O’Malley. The Scott Pilgrim graphic novels are actually set in and around Toronto, so Wright decided it was best to shoot on location in our fair city. Casting area native Michael Cera as Pilgrim doesn’t hurt the film’s authenticity either. Wright is adding more pictures every day, so it’s worth checking his official site regularly.
Don’t forget the Jackie Chan double bill at The Bloor on April 5th, hosted by Edgar Wright as part of his Wright Stuff series. If the unbridled kick-assery of Police Story and Drunken Master II aren’t enough reason to come out, just think you might actually meet Edgar Wright—more importantly, you might get to meet me!
