Wright Talks “Scott Pilgrim” Reshoots

Edgar Wright has confirmed that he’s returning to Toronto to do three days of pick-up shooting on “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World” for Universal Pictures.

The filmmaker tells Collider that “We are not even redoing one full scene, nor any action, just some bits and bobs and new jokes and beats that I wrote with [co-writer Michael] Bacall & [author Bryan Lee] O’Malley.” In fact some material from the sixth and final volume in the comic series will be included.

Wright adds “I’m excited about it. It was my suggestion to the studio and the bits and pieces are all things that I want to tweak.” Also for those worrying, Wright says both “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz” also had a few days of additional shooting – pickups that included the now iconic scene of a granny being kicked in the face.
