UPDATE - "Scott Pilgrim" creator Bryan Lee O'Malley spoke at the New York Comic-Con and revealed that NO part of SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD will be animated (there were reportedly tests done at one time but they were scrapped) and that Brandon Routh is making people upset with his misinformation...

SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD is about to start filming in Canada and courtesy of one of the film's stars, we're finding out that Scott Pilgrim might not be entirely live-action. Brandon Routh, who plays one of the evil ex-boyfriends of Pilgrim's love interest Ramona, spoke to Collider yesterday and revealed that there will be some hand-drawn animated sequences in the film. Said Routh, "It's gonna be a great mix of real people and drawn animation," which reveals a side to the film that hadn't previously been revealed. Exactly what aspects of the film will be animated remains to be seen but I'd suspect that some of the battles with the ex-boyfriends will lapse into some type of stylized animation. Edgar Wright is directing the film in Toronto based on the graphic novels by Bryan Lee O'Malley. Coincidentally, Issue 5 of the graphic novels, "Scott Pilgrim vs. The Universe" hits comic shops today. For more on SCOTT PILGRIM and its epic cast, click here to read all about it.

Extra Tidbit: I wonder if Edgar is thrilled that Brandon is talking about this...

I'm still unsure about Cera as Pilgrim but I'll trust Edgar Wright on this casting and hope he's got a good reason for getting him...

And hearing about this animated part is awesome. I was wondering how they'd capture the craziness of each fight in a live action way. This helps out a lot. I dig it.

A7xfAN, I echo your enthusiasm. Personally I tink Michael Cera is a great choice. I realize some people are unhappy with his casting, but I really can't think of a better suited young actor for the part. I also think that they wouldn't have been able to make everybody happy no matter who they cast. That's one of the difficulties of being a young actor, they always seem to attract their fair share of detractors.

Meh...

I think the whole thing should be animated! I think the cast is wrong, with an emphasis on the lead. I'll try to stay positive until the trailer hits.
