As committed as I am to maintaining my current level of existential despair, I can't help but geek out a bit over Edgar Wright's photographic peeks at Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. The Spaced and Shaun of the Dead director is helming the movie adaptation of Bryan Lee O'Malley's videogame-obsessed opus about an underachieving twentysomething who, in order to nab the girl of his dreams, has to vanquish her seven evil exes. Compressing the entire six book series into a feature-length film may sound like a daunting task, but judging from the most recent photos posted on Wright's website, he's got a firm grip on the spirit of the Scott Pilgrim universe. For now, we have to settle for stand-ins in lieu of the actual actors (though methinks I spot a very blurry Kim Pine), but the set dressing and the pallette feel spot-on, right down the Lame Brand amps and the dirty dishes in the sink.
Not only am I way more psyched about Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, I can't wait to see Wright join forces with Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat for the Tintin screenplay.
