‘Scott Pilgrim’ Stars Jason Schwartzman And Michael Cera Prep For Battle In New Video

Even though fans have yet to be treated to a proper trailer for the upcoming “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World,” that doesn’t mean there haven’t been plenty of peeks into production courtesy of director Edgar Wright’s blog. With shooting entering its final stages, Wright’s most recent video update hints at the film’s most coveted details regarding the final showdown between titular protagonist Scott Pilgrim and his love’s most evil ex-boyfriend Gideon Graves.

The update shows Wright reporting from the top of what appears to be a light-up pyramid stage adorned with all the trimmings of a proper rock show, including modified Marshall guitar amplifiers and speaker cabinets. Mary Elizabeth Winstead appears wearing bright green hair as Ramona Flowers, having switched colors since last fans saw her, mirroring her character’s comic characteristic.

Additionally Jason Schwartzman, who plays the as-yet-unseen Graves can be seen laughing on set with Pilgrim himself, Michael Cera. The two will most likely duke it out on (or around) the pyramid, possibly for the film’s climactic final confrontation for the love of Flowers.

Cera and Schwartzman aren’t the only ones poised for a little battle damage, though. Actress Ellen Wong shows off some bruises of her own, which she refers to as “badges,” presumably earned while filming as Scott’s former love interest Knives Chau.

While O’Malley’s already hinted at a few omissions and differences between the “Scott Pilgrim” graphic novel series and its movie counterpart, it’s important to consider these observations speculative until the final product is revealed in 2010, but it’s hard to ignore a scene the director of “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz” refers to as, “suitably epic.”

Now, fans will have to wait and see if the movie aesthetic makes it into O’Malley’s final volume of the series.

How about it “Scott Pilgrim” fans? Excited to see the movie wrap shooting? What do you think of the set of Gideon and Scott’s final battle? Confront your feelings in the comments.
