Winstead a Pilgrim

Mary Elizabeth Winstead (GRINDHOUSE) has signed on to star opposite Michael Cera in the upcoming film SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD. Edgar Wright is directing the film based on the Oni Press graphic novel "Scott Pilgrim Volume 1: Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life" by Bryan Lee O'Malley. The film will star Cera as the titular Scott Pilgrim, a recent college grad who meets his dream girl, Ramona Flowers (Winstead). But to win her heart he must battle and defeat her seven evil ex-boyfriends. For me the pairing of Cera and Winstead is fantastic as I've long considered them some of the best of their generation. Add Edgar Wright into the mix and whoababy, we've got ourselves a winner. It hasn't even started filming yet and I want to see it already (anyone seen the script and have any feedback?). Winstead has been laying low since LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD but Cera has been quite busy with NICK AND NORAH'S INFINITE PLAYLIST and YEAR ONE with YOUTH IN REVOLT also in development. No word yet on when SCOTT PILGRIM might begin filming but it looks like it could go later this summer.

Extra Tidbit: Though I hated the JUSTICE LEAGUE movie, I loved the idea of Winstead as Wonder Woman.

Quality casting choice

Mary Elizabeth Winstead is without a doubt one of the most talented young actresses working today as well as one of the most gorgeous women on the planet, so I'm loving this casting news.

I'm also a fan of Michael Cera and the movie sounds promising.
