So who all on this forum reads the Scott Pilgrim graphic novels? I do and I think they're the bees knees. Now any time a movie is adapted from something I like, it scares me a bit because there is such a great chance that it will suck. However, having seen what is looking like what will be the final cast list, I can upgrade that to full on anxious.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0446029/

None of the girls look how I pictured them, but that's kind of to be expected because everyone pictures characters a bit differently.

Michael Cera, though?

Has everybody else looked at this whole cast list? How are you feeling about it overall?

Edit: Okay, Mark Webber looks exactly like Stephen Stills. I'll give credit where it is due.

I think we talked about this in some other Scott Pilgrim thread, but that's long been dead.

I still don't like Michael Cera.  Never have, never will.  I think Scott Pilgrim is a pretty okay read, but even I don't want them to mess up the movie.

It's being co-written and directed by the dude who did hot fuzz and shaun of the dead, I'm not worried about it being bad at all.

Was he in charge of casting? Because if so he lost a lot of points. Michael Cera is kind of a crummy actor and I'm not looking forward to Scott's lines being said in his weird little throaty voice.

Looking at his (The wonderful Edgar Wright that is) whole flickr thread & all the production shots make me happy.

I think Cerra will be OK. He isn't so bad. If you think about other "famous" actors they could have ended up with, I'm glad it's him to be honest...

(2) Is that a "Jonas Brother"?

Paul Dano could play the part beautifully, but I don't think he looks right for it (yes, yes: simple art means that people can imagine characters how they please and whatnot, but still.)

Also, make fun of Zack Efron all you like, but he would have made a kick-ass Wallace in this film.

I got the first issue because I was curious. It started out really lame and I almost stopped reading it, but I decided to just keep reading and I'm glad I did because it got a lot better. I wish the entire comic was like the crazy shit at the end with the fight scene but oh well.

I can't help it, all the stupid highschool bullshit (and yes I realize it was post-highschool bullshit, you know what I mean) was boring as hell to read. It was like someone illustrated the Relationship Thread.

That should not be done.

The relationship stuff in the books didn't really bother me until the last couple of books when Ramona just got really mean and irrational about everything. Maybe he will clear it up in this last volume and make her seem like less of a wretch, but meanwhile, I found myself grinding my teeth at her a lot.

So it's not just the first volume that starts slow and speeds up, that applies to the entire series. Pretty much all of Volume 3 is perfect.

Kim Pine in volume 4:
I'm sad that I'm about to die, but I'm not sad that you're about to die. I just want you to know that.

favorite moment in volume 5: Robot-01 has joined the party!

So what volumes will the movie cover anyway? From the casting it's clearly going to go into Volume 3, but it's just as clearly going to stop somewhere in the middle of the story.

No, they just wrote a separate ending. Since there is a Gideon battle, I assume it will touch briefly on the happenings in the current books (no Lisa Miller. Boooo) and then end however they've written it.

I have just finished reading volumes 1&2, to weigh in on Cera I think that I am also worried but if he isn't just the same character again, and they make him look older he'll be fine.
Also if I was reading this as it came out I'd probably be living in Toronto right now.

I'm looking through Michael Cera's filmography and out of every film I've seen him in he's been exactly the same.  It was fun in Arrested Development and Juno and after that it started to get really tiring.  Although it seems all the roles he's been in have just required him to be "awkward teenager."  I can't recall a film I've seen him in where he had a chance to do anything different.  That gives me hope, just a little.

He has the power invested in him to try to jump to a different role. If Monique can do it, why can't he?

I've seen the first official photograph and I'm still not excited. Whatever, it's been made and I'll probably get more excited when I see some actual trailers with Michael Cera not playing a Michael Cera character.

Mary E. Winstead has been photographed with pink, green and blue hair, but I don't know if there will be more colors. I am disappointed that they didn't mix up the styles a little bit more since they are clearly using wigs and since Ramona's hairstyle changed quite a bit and Winstead is cute enough to pull off probably any hairstyle. Julie Powers does look good as does Stephen Stills. Strangely, I though the girl playing Roxie would probably be a better Kim Pine than Allison Pill, but I'm sure they didn't want all the Arrested Developement fans to start squealing simultaneously if Cera's ex from that show played his ex in this movie. They really should have cast me as Lynette, the drummer from Clash at Demonhead. Seriously. But I can move on from that.

Also if I was reading this as it came out I'd probably be living in Toronto right now.

Right?
