'Scott Pilgrim' Creator Hints At Omissions & Differences Between Movie And Series

Scott Pilgrim Vs The WorldEdgar Wright's live-action adaption of "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" will have Ramona Flowers' "+2 Against Girls" Hammer, Scott's band Sex Bob-Omb, and even their rivals The Clash at Demonhead, but the film will part ways with creator Bryan Lee O'Malley's original comics scripts for its ending. With "Scott Pilgrim Volume 5: Scott Pilgrim vs The Universe" still relatively new to shelves this year, no one but O'Malley knows what lies in store for his cast in Volume 6 of his Oni Press series -- and according to him, the film won't introduce spoilers from the climactic volume of his readers.

"None of Vol. 6 is in the movie," O'Malley said today on his Twitter feed. "Note that I haven't finished writing it yet, but they're already making a movie. Their ending is their ending."

The writer and artist praised this direction for the film, which is currently in production in Toronto, starring Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Chris Evans, and Brandon Routh.

"I am totally pleased with the movie," wrote O'Malley. "Subplots from six books do not fit in one two-hour movie, and I'm glad my adaptors know this."

O'Malley also offered a few less-crucial characters and plot elements that will not be included in the movie, including Knives Chau's dad, Scott's high school friend Lisa Miller, and the fight in Honest Ed's, a large discount store in Toronto.

"If you've been to Honest Ed's in real life, you'll understand why I'm glad no film crew has to set up in there for a week," O'Malley explained.
