New 'Scott Pilgrim' Set Photo Teases Motion-Capture Animation

New photos popping up from the set of “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” showing unidentified people in motion-capture suits have once again brought the discussion back to the subject of how much animation will be present in director Edgar Wright's adaptation of Bryan Lee O'Malley's popular series.

'Scott Pilgrim' Mo-Cap


The new photo, posted in Wright's photo blog yesterday, depicts a pair of people clad in the mo-cap suits often used for digital animation of actors. While "Scott Pilgrim" actor Brandon Routh previously announced that the film would blend live-action with animation, O'Malley subsequently told MTV that Routh's comments were "blown out of proportion" with regard to the amount of animation in the film.

There's been a steady stream of photos from the Toronto set of “Scott Pilgrim vs The World” hitting the 'Net lately, from photos that appear to be Brandon Routh as his character, Todd Ingram to a mysterious photo that might be rumored cast member Jason Schwartzman as the seventh evil-ex boyfriend.

What do you think about the new picture? What's your opinion on hand-drawn animation vs CGI in "Scott Pilgrim"?
