Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Scott pilgrim the most famous graphic novels have been released on screen courtesy of Edgar Wright Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, which has become a cult classic even if it didn’t ignite the box office. Now Netflix is ââlooking to focus on the action, with O’Malley on board to turn the story into anime.
O’Malley is working with BenDavid Grabinski to develop the toon version of his six-volume tale, published between 2004 and 2010. For those who don’t know him, he follows the titular Canadian slacker, who plays in a garage band called Sex Bob -omb with his friends. His life is turned upside down when he meets Ramona Flowers, a recently single American. But before their love can blossom, Pilgrim finds himself challenged by his love’s previous seven relationships and must overcome them excessively.
Netflix has yet to place an actual series order for the show, which means that will depend on the quality of the scripts. And Wright, along with production partner Nira Park and film co-writer Michael Bacall will all receive executive producer credits, although they are not currently directly involved with the series. The film brought a lot of story energy to the screen, but the animation obviously offers even more opportunities.
