Cera the Pilgrim

Indie favorite Michael Cera looks to be taking on a comic book role now that he's finally done with all the Juno hype; that of Scott Pilgrim. No it's not a superhero at all, its actually another indie fav, that seems quite suited to Michael Cera's unique charms. Scott Pilgrim is specifically an action/comedy series that according to wikipedia follows a "23-year-old Canadian Scott Pilgrim, a slacker, hero, wannabe-rockstar, who is living in Toronto and playing bass in the band "Sex Bob-Omb." He falls in love with American delivery girl Ramona V. Flowers, but must defeat her seven "evil exes" in order to date her."

Awesome. Defeat the seven evil exes and win the girl. How hard can that be... The film is on the fast-track and will be directed by Shaun of the Dead star and director Edgar Wright. Although I haven't read the books myself, they always appealed to me as really cute looking, and something I absolutely intend to pick up when I get the chance. This project definitely sounds like it should be a lot of fun. We'll see how it develops.
