We still have a little while to wait for “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World” to arrive in theaters, but it’s hard not to count the days until we finally get to see director Edgar Wright bring Bryan Lee O’Malley’s series to the big screen.
When we recently sat down with “Scott Pilgrim” star Michael Cera to talk about his upcoming film “Youth In Revolt,” we were armed with a question about the comic book adaptation directly from Wright himself.
“That movie has more air cannon and lightbulbs in it than any other movie I have ever seen,” said Cera when we posed him the question from his “Scott Pilgrim” director.
Wright had asked us to find out whether Cera still dreamed of lightbulbs and air horns now that production on “Pilgrim” was completed. And the answer was a very emphatic yes.
“There are so many light bulb pops going off throughout the whole movie,” said Cera.
As far as the film’s status, Cera said he’s seen a good portion of the film already, since it was being edited and cut simultaneous to filming.
“It’s a lot like the graphic novel,” he explained. “It’s going to look like how the graphic novel looks.”
Cera also added that the series’ creator came up with a very unique way to get the actors inside their characters’ heads.
“[O’ Malley] gave everyone a sheet of 10 things about their character that only we were supposed to know,” he explained. “It was really cool.”
Asked by “Youth in Revolt” director Miguel Arteta whether he ever spilled the beans on Scott Pilgrim’s secret info, Cera said his lips remained sealed.
“I don’t think I ever told anyone, but a few people told me their secrets,” he said. “They couldn’t hold it in.”
