It was announced earlier today that Michael Cera is in final negotiations to play Scott Pilgrim in the film adaptation of Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Life, the hit comic by ex-Torontonian Bryan Lee O’Malley. Not that anyone should be particularly surprised by the casting choice: Cera is pretty much Hollywood’s go-to guy for likable underdog characters nowadays.
The first volume of the Scott Pilgrim comics series has been in talks with Universal since 2005, with Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) slated to direct. Now that Wright has found his Scott, all we want to know is: who will be playing Ramona Flowers?
