First Look @ Universal's "Scott Pilgrim"

Take a look at some new images from Universal's upcoming Toronto-shot comic book adaptation "Scott Pilgrim".

"Scott Pilgrim" lensed numerous sequences at Pinewood Toronto Studios (formerly Filmport), noted as the largest indoor, sound stage studio in North America.

Premise of the original comic book series, created by Bryan Lee O'Malley, first published by Portland indie Oni Press in 2004, follows the romantic (mis) adventures of teenager 'Scott Pilgrim' , a slacker and wanna-be rock star, who lives in Toronto .

Pilgrim plays with the band "Sex Bob-Omb", falling in love with American beauty 'Ramona V. Flowers'. But Flowers insists that Pilgrim defeat her 7 'evil' ex-boyfriends in order to receive her mutual affections.

Universal optioned the property in 2005 for Edgar "Shaun Of The Dead" Wright to direct from a screenplay by Michael Bacall, starring Canadian actor Michael "Juno" Cera and Mary Elizabeth "Grindhouse" Winstead.

"Scott Pilgrim Vs The World" is produced by Eric Gitter, Nira Park, Marc E. Platt and Wright.
