“One of the proudest, most enjoyable achievements of my career was assembling the dynamite cast of Scott Pilgrim. Since the film’s release in 2010, we’ve done Q&As and charity read-throughs, but there was never the occasion to reunite the gang on an actual project. Until now...,” he continued. “Original creator Bryan Lee O’Malley, along with writer BenDavid Grabinski have conjured up an anime series of Scott Pilgrim with the geniuses at [Science Saru] that doesn’t just expand the universe, but also…well, just watch it.”
Wright dished that the all-new anime series is coming soon to Netflix and would feature Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Satya Bhabha, Kieran Culkin,Chris Evans,Anna Kendrick,Brie Larson, Alison Pill, Aubrey Plaza,Brandon Routh, Jason Schwartzman, Johnny Simmons,Mark Webber,Mae Whitman, and Elle Wong.
