Scott Pilgrim won't be animated

"That picture above is the super cute as always Mary Elizabeth Winstead with her short black hair, which is part of her costume as Ramona Flowers in Edgar Wright’s upcoming adaptation of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. It is not her in full costume and/or a shot from the movie, though. Just thought we should be clear on that.

That said, Winstead has been captured as part of Edgar Wright’s Myspace photo blogging experiment, where he has been posting a new image from his life every day".

UPDATE - "Scott Pilgrim" creator Bryan Lee O'Malley spoke at the New York Comic-Con and revealed that NO part of SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD will be animated (there were reportedly tests done at one time but they were scrapped) and that Brandon Routh is making people upset with his misinformation...

SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD is about to start filming in Canada and courtesy of one of the film's stars, we're finding out that Scott Pilgrim might not be entirely live-action. Brandon Routh, who plays one of the evil ex-boyfriends of Pilgrim's love interest Ramona, spoke to Collider yesterday and revealed that there will be some hand-drawn animated sequences in the film. Said Routh, "It's gonna be a great mix of real people and drawn animation," which reveals a side to the film that hadn't previously been revealed. Exactly what aspects of the film will be animated remains to be seen but I'd suspect that some of the battles with the ex-boyfriends will lapse into some type of stylized animation. Edgar Wright is directing the film in Toronto based on the graphic novels by Bryan Lee O'Malley. Coincidentally, Issue 5 of the graphic novels, "Scott Pilgrim vs. The Universe" hits comic shops today". Source:
