Bryan Lee O'Malley, creator of 'Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life' saw last week's Hollywood Reporter article echo mis-information around the internet. Now he aims to set the record straight from his Live Journal blog. Here are some excerpts:
...I can "confirm" that Michael Cera is going to play Scott Pilgrim in this movie adaptation.
It is not called 'Scott Pilgrim's Little Life', as the whole internet has been saying...It isn't even called 'Precious Little Life', but I defer to the film's creators as to when and how they want to make their announcements.
Yes, the studio (Universal) is "eyeing a fall start".
Yes, it is based on the entire story arc, not just the first book, and yes we talked a lot about what should happen in the later parts of the story, but at the same time we have already diverged significantly. It is a complimentary story, not an exact copy.
Yes, [director and co-screenwriter] Edgar Wright is a fine fellow who has included me since the very start (late '04 / early '05).
