According to The Hollywood Reporter, Japanese animation studio Science SARU has been hired to develop the new adaptation of the Scott Pilgrim anime series, based on the graphic novel series by Bryan Lee O’Malley. The brand-new version, which has yet to receive a series order, is being developed by Netflix and UCP, the Universal Studio Group company behind The Umbrella Academy and Chucky.
Scott Pilgrim Anime Series- A History To Get To The Future
Edgar Wright, who also happens to be an executive producer on the anime series, first brought Scott Pilgrim to life over a decade ago. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World starred Michael Cera and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Scott and Ramona, respectively. In addition to Kieran Culkin, Alison Pill, Anna Kendrick, Jason Schwartzman, Brandon Routh, and Chris Evans, the picture stars Kieran Culkin, Alison Pill, Anna Kendrick, Jason Schwartzman, Brandon Routh, and Chris Evans. Despite getting rave reviews, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World was a box office flop upon its initial release, but it has since developed a devoted cult following. Last year, the picture was even re-released in theaters to commemorate its tenth anniversary.
The game Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game, produced by Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Chengdu in 2010, was one of several spin-offs from the franchise. Amidst being delisted in 2014, the game was re-released on January 14, 2021 under the title “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Complete Installment.” Fans are mixed about the announcement of the Scott Pilgrim Anime Series
On one degree, adapting the graphic novels for anime is a nod to some of the graphic novels’ Japanese elements, as O’Malley’s work was heavily influenced by numerous manga, or Japanese comic books. Grabinski also wrote and directed the dark romantic comedy Happily, starring Joel McHale and Kerry Bishe, which was released in 2021 and focused on partnerships and the resentments that accompany them. CAA, Kaplan/Perrone Entertainment, and Bloom Hergott are his agents.
