Earlier this month, we reported the news that “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World” would receive some extra footage, courtesy of some reshoots ordered by director Edgar Wright. Calling the extra scenes “icing on the cake,” Wright explained that some of the content originated with the upcoming sixth volume of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s hit comic book series.
MTV News caught up with “Scott Pilgrim” actor Jason Schwartzman on the set of his HBO series “Bored To Death” to ask him about the reshoots.
“Yes, a little bit,” responded Schwartzman when asked if he was involved in the scenes receiving some extra footage.
As for whether they’ll indeed contain some story elements from “Scott Pilgrim: Volume 6,” the actor was a little more cautious about what he could reveal.
“I’ve heard some of these rumblings,” he said.
In the film, Schwartzman plays Gideon Graves, who Scott must defeat in order to win his new girlfriend’s heart. When asked how much of the film he’d seen at this point, Schwartzman heaped praise on both the film and its director.
“I’ve seen it, and it’s fantastic,” he said of the film. “It’s so amazing, because it has so many different things in it. It’s many different layers and tones — comedy, emotion, action, drama.”
“Edgar worked so hard on it and put so much into it,” he added. “It’s really just fun to watch, too, because it’s always changing. Just when you think you have your finger on it, it alters.”
However, even with all that praise for the film, Schwartzman said there was one aspect of the project he didn’t like very much.
“I hated to do [the final fight], because I love Michael Cera so much,” he laughed. “It was not natural to me to want to attack him.”
