Director of Shaun of the Dead has new film

Director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) has a new film coming out this year called, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.  Michael Cera (Arrested Development, Juno) stars as a guy who falls in love with a girl, but has to defeat  her 7 ex-partners via Mortal Kombat style confrontations:

The whole cast for the film is a hodge-podge of actors from the quirky ends of the film universe:

-Mae Whitman is in the trailer, the actress who played Ann Veal in Arrested Development (playing Michael Cera’s character’s girlfriend)

-Anna Kendrick, who is now famous for Up In the Air, but will always remain to me for her part in Rocket Science

-Jason Schwartzman (every Wes Anderson film)

With the sound effects and whatnot it immediately made me think of Super Smash Bros.  Hopefully this will be just as fun.
