What a time to be a fan of Scott Pilgrim!

A few weeks ago we learned the movie and video game are getting re-releases after this damned virus pi@#es off (here), then we learned that an animated adventure is in the works and a sequel to the iconic comic series may happen (here) and now we have a cast table read of the movie script to enjoy!

The read was and has director Edgar Wright appearing alongside Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Chris Evans, Anna Kendrick, Alison Pill, Aubrey Plaza, Mae Whitman, Jason Schwartzman, Ellen Wong, Satya Bhabha, Brandon Routh, and Mark Webber as well Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O’Malley and screenplay co-writer Michael Bacall.

How’s that for a slice of fired gold?

The gathering celebrates the movie’s tenth anniversary (time does fly), so if you’re a fan (how could you not be?), then stick on a brew, grab a bun and get comfy… Scott Pilgrim is about to take on the world again.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
