"Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" features the charming and jobless Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera of "Juno," "Superbad"). A bass guitarist for garage band Sex Bob-Omb, the 22-year-old has just met the girl of his dreams ... literally. The only catch to winning the elusive, mysterious Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead of "Live Free or Die Hard," upcoming "The Thing")? Her seven evil exes are coming to kill him.

Scott Pilgrim has never had a problem getting a girlfriend. It's getting rid of them that proves difficult. From the girl who kicked his heart's ass—and now is back in town—to the teenage distraction he's trying to shake when Ramona rollerblades into his world, love hasn't been easy. He soon discovers, however, his new crush has the most unusual baggage of all: a nefarious league of exes controls her love life and will do whatever it takes to eliminate him as a suitor.

As Scott gets closer to Ramona, he must face an increasingly vicious rogues' gallery from her past—from infamous skateboarders to vegan rock stars and fearsome identical twins. And if he hopes to win his true love, he must vanquish them all before it really is game over.

Joining Cera and Winstead for the principal cast of "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" are Kieran Culkin ("Igby Goes Down," "The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys") as Scott's awesome roommate, Wallace Wells; Chris Evans ("The Losers," upcoming "Captain America: The First Avenger") as pro-skateboarder/action star Lucas Lee; Anna Kendrick ("Up in the Air," "Twilight" series) as Scott's younger, not-putting-up-with-it sister, Stacey Pilgrim; Brie Larson (television's "United States of Tara," "Greenberg") as the girl who kicked Scott's heart in the ass, rocker chick Envy Adams; Alison Pill ("Milk," "Pieces of April") as Sex Bob-Omb's disaffected drummer, Kim Pine; Aubrey Plaza ("Funny People," television's "Parks and Recreation") as Stephen Stills' obnoxious sometime girlfriend, Julie Powers; Brandon Routh ("Superman Returns," "Zack and Miri Make a Porno") as power vegan bassist Todd Ingram; Jason Schwartzman ("Funny People," "Fantastic Mr. Fox") as the leader of the League of Evil Exes, Gideon Graves; Johnny Simmons ("Jennifer's Body," "Hotel for Dogs") as Sex Bob-Omb super fan Young Neil; Mark Webber ("Broken Flowers," "The Memory Thief") as the band's lead singer/songwriter, Stephen Stills; Mae Whitman (television's "Parenthood," "Arrested Development") as Ramona's scorned ex-girlfriend, Roxy Richter; and newcomer Ellen Wong as Scott's highschool crush, Knives Chau.

The accomplished behind-the-scenes team is led by producers Marc Platt ("Wanted," "Legally Blonde," the musical "Wicked"), Eric Gitter ("Leaves of Grass," "O"), Nira Park ("Hot Fuzz," "Shaun of the Dead") and Edgar Wright. The talented crew of filmmakers who have joined the production includes director of photography Bill Pope ("The Matrix" trilogy, "Spider-Man 2"), production designer Marcus Rowland ("Hot Fuzz," "Shaun of the Dead"), costume designer Laura Jean Shannon ("Iron Man," "Elf"), VFX producer Lucy Killick ("Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," "Hellboy II: The Golden Army"), SFX coordinator Laird Mcmurray ("The Incredible Hulk," "Dawn of the Dead"), fight choreographer/stunt coordinator Brad Allan ("Hellboy II: The Golden Army," "Kick-Ass"), editors Jonathan Amos (television's "Ashes to Ashes," "Spooks") and Paul Machliss (television's "Spaced," "The IT Crowd") and concept designer Oscar Wright ("Hot Fuzz," "Shaun of the Dead"). The legendary Nigel Godrich ("Paul McCartney: Chaos and Creation," "Radiohead: In Rainbows") composes and executive produces music for the film. Godrich collaborates with Beck for the music and lyrics of Sex Bob- Omb's songs.

The screenplay for "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" is written by Michael Bacall (upcoming "21 Jump Street") & Edgar Wright, based on the Oni Press graphic novel series by Bryan Lee O'Malley. Executive producers for the film are Ronaldo Vasconcellos ("Hot Fuzz," "Shaun of the Dead"), J. Miles Dale ("Talk to Me," "Hollywoodland"), Jared Leboff ("Wanted") and Adam Siegel ("Wanted").
