SCOTT PILGRIM Netflix Animated Series In The Works With Creator Bryan Lee O'Malley On Board

Netflix and UCP (The Umbrella Academy, Chucky) are developing a new anime series based on acclaimed comic book Scott Pilgrim, with creator/artist Bryan Lee O’Malley on board as executive producer.

Good news for Scott Pilgrim fans, as a new anime series based on the mega-popular Oni Press comic books by Bryan Lee O'Malley is in the works for Netflix.

The project will be produced by UCP, with creator Lee O’Malley on board as writer and and executive producer along with BenDavid Grabinski. The pair will also serve as co-showrunners. The animation will be handled by Science SARU, while Abel Gongora will direct.

Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Baby Driver) adapted the graphic novel series as a live-action movie called Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (the name of the second volume) back in 2010, with Michael Cera starring as Scott and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Ramona. The film, which also starred Jason Schwartzman, Kieran Culkin, Chris Evans, Anna Kendrick, Allison Pill, and Brandon Routh, bob-ombed (sorry) when it was released, but has since gone on to achieve cult status.

Wright will also executive produce the anime alongside Nira Park, Marc Platt, Jared LeBoff, and Adam Seigel of Marc Platt Productions.

The comic followed the titular slacker, who plays in a garage band called Sex Bob-omb, as he falls in love with a girl named Ramona Flowers. Before they can embark on a relationship, Pilgrim must do battle with Ramona's seven evil ex boyfriends.
