Michael Cera is Scott Pilgrim!

With Edgar Wright directing…

Michael Cera must have forgiven Edgar Wright for insulting him during the press tour for Superbad… Kidding! We know it was a specially created viral video, and that the man behind Hot Fuzz’s megaphone is good mates with the Apatow gang. So it only seems natural to report that Cera will play Scott Pilgrim for Wright.

Edgar’s been plotting to direct Scott Pilgrim’s Little Life for a while now, which is adapted from Bryan Lee O’Malley’s comic about a slacker who must battle the ex-boyfriends of his dream woman to win her heart.

The Hollywood Reporter is living the story.
