Edgar Wright Talks 'Stuntmen' from Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
06.11.10 by Ryan
The first full clip from Scott Pilgrim vs. The World premiered on Sunday during the MTV Movie Awards. The clip featured Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) confront one of his new girlfriend's "evil" ex-boyfriends in a visual melee of kung-fu and comic book imagery. Scott Pilgrim writer-director Edgar Wright talked to MTV about the clip and discussed its significance in the movie.
[It's] a clip of ex number two, who is Lucas Lee, pro skateboarder-turned-action star played by Chris Evans, and he's making a new film in Toronto. Rather unwisely, Scott Pilgrim stumbles across the set and is about to get his ass handed to him.
While Evans initially takes down Cera, he quickly gets some help.
They are his stunt guys, and the joke is that, as they fan out, they look less and less like Chris Evans. So the main one looks very much like Chris Evans, two and three are pretty good, [but] five, six and seven, not so good.
For those that missed the clip, watch it below and look closely for stunt guys numbers five through seven.
