This just in. Writer/director Edgar Wright (Shaun Of The Dead and the TV cult classic Spaced) looks set to helm the graphic novel Precious Little Life!
Wright is in talks with Universal Pictures about directing the movie based on the graphic novel Scott Pilgrim Volume 1: Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life, written by Bryan Lee O'Malley.
The film tells the story of a young slacker who meets the woman of his dreams but finds that he can win her only by first defeating her seven evil ex-boyfriends.
Wright and SOTD co-writer/star Simon Pegg are also currently developing Hot Fuzz, a buddy-cop action comedy for Working Title.
Scott Pilgrim's life is totally sweet. He's 23 years old, in a rock band, "between jobs," and dating a cute high school girl. Everything's fantastic until a seriously mind-blowing, dangerously fashionable, rollerblading delivery girl named Ramona Flowers starts cruising through his dreams and sailing by him at parties. Will Scott's awesome life get turned upside-down? Will he have to face Ramona's seven evil ex-boyfriends in battle?
