The Twitter Report feed is capable inducing great smiles at times — especially when Edgar Wright gets frank with "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" details. Today he talked soundtrack size, and it sounds like we could be seeing a double disc set.
Some people have been smiling about the newly unveiled mascots for London's 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games. Their names are Wenlock and Mandeville, and Simon Spurrier thinks they could be at home in the Transformers universe. By the way, speaking of the Transformers universe, you probably heard the report that Megan Fox is out of "Transformers 3." This does not surprise Frank Tieri. You can find out what does and does not surprise you below.
I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter Report for May 20, 2010.
Soundtrack pt. 1: @edgarwright It looks like there is so much music in Scott Pilgrim, we might be talking a two volume soundtrack. How exciting!
-Edgar Wright, Director ("Scott Pilgrim vs. The World")
Soundtrack pt. 2: @edgarwright I can also confirm that the 1st volume contains 6 tracks from Bryan Lee O'Malley's playlists in the books. Guess which 6 were my favs too.
