Edgar Wright's adaptation of Bryan Lee O'Malley's "Scott Pilgrim" is going back in front of the cameras, despite an extremely positive response from test screenings and high praise from his fellow filmmakers.
"We are doing 3 days of pick ups," Wright confirmed to Collider. "And to be honest — I’m excited about it. It was my suggestion to the studio and the bits and pieces are all things that I want to tweak. Truth is, some of it, is because we have material from Vol 6 that is impossible to resist and so even after a nearly a year of editing — it’s going to be fun to put some icing on the cake."
"We are not even redoing one full scene, nor any action, just some bits and bobs and new jokes and beats that I wrote with [Michael] Bacall & [Bryan Lee] O’Malley," added Wright. "If you guys want or feel inclined to put out any fire — I give you this comparison… Both ['Shaun of The Dead'] & 'Hot Fuzz' had two and three days respectively of additional shooting. One of those bits was the granny being kicked in the face. I think we can all agree that was a good pickup."
First published in 2004, "Scott Pilgrim" is a wildly popular comic book series that follows a slacker and part-time musician who falls for a girl named Ramona Flowers, before learning that he must face her "seven evil exes" in battle before he can win her heart.
"Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour" — the sixth and final volume of the comic book series — is expected to be released in July, shortly before the film hits.
'Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World' slams into theaters on August 13.
