Watch the Scott Pilgrim vs. The World Reunion Table Read!
In celebration of Scott Pilgrim vs the World’s upcoming 10th anniversary and to raise money for a good cause, director Edgar Wright and the cast of the 2010 action-comedy film reunited for a virtual table read, which you can watch below! The table read benefits Water For People, a charity that aims to promote the development of high-quality drinking water and sanitation services, accessible to all, and sustained by strong communities, businesses, and governments.
The virtual reunion consists of Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Chris Evans, Anna Kendrick, Aubrey Plaza, Ellen Wong, Kieran Culkin, Mark Webber, Johnny Simmons, Alison Pill, Satya Bhabha, Mae Whitman, Brandon Routh, and Jason Schwartzman. Joining Wright are the film’s co-writer Michael Bacall and Scott Pilgrim graphic novel writer Bryan Lee O’Malley.
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World starred Michael Cera as Scott Pilgrim, a young man who falls hard for Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s Ramona Flowers. But to win Ramona’s heart, Scott has to face her seven evil exes, including Lucas Lee (Chris Evans), Todd Ingram (Brandon Routh), Roxy Richter (Mae Whitman), and Gideon Graves (Jason Schwartzman). Alison Brie also appears as Scott’s evil ex, Envy Adams, alongside Alison Pill as Kim Pine, Aubrey Plaza as Julie Powers, Kieran Culkin as Wallace Wells, and Ellen Wong as Knives Chau.
Even though the film had a poor box office performance, it had still earned positive reviews from critics and has amassed quite a cult following. Even though a sequel is off the table, Edgar Wright has instead revealed that there are talks currently happening about a potential animated spinoff series.
