Spaced to Scott: A Night with Edgar Wright

Gizzle and I made it out to the LA Film Festival on June 20th at Downtown LA for the Edgar Wright Saves the World panel, co-hosted by J.J. Abrams. The discussion involved Abrams asking Edgar Wright (director of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and the upcoming Scott Pilgrim Saves the World movie) questions as they showed different clips that encompassed Wright’s entire career. We even caught a glimpse of one of his earliest indie film that involved mostly his friends running around with guns at a park.

Wright talks about the television series, Spaced, his first project involving Simon Pegg; music videos he directed in between his transition from TV to movie; to his hit movie Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz; and then the night ended with a completed 9-minute clip from the Scott Pilgrim movie.

It was really neat to see these two well-known directors talk to each other and to the audience and we learned more about Wright’s directing/film career. It was a great opportunity for fans of his work to get to know the man behind the camera, as they say.

Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Movie

I am so excited for this movie.

I love the Scott Pilgrim graphic novel series by Bryan O’Malley. Plus, Edgar Wright (director of movies like Hot Fuzz) directed this film! Which means it should be awesome… even if just borderline awesome… but somehow, it will be full of awesome and a touch of epic.

At first, I was reluctant to see Michael Cera in the role of Scott Pilgrim, but since I’ve viewed the trailer (a few million times)… I think it is a good fit. Since Scott acts like the constant “victim” in the comic book, Cera’s acting style might just pull it off.

Either way, I think it would be a good and fun watch, even for people who hasn’t read the comic books. Though you guys REALLY should. I mean… really. Do it. It’s kind of epic.
