Wright Adds Animation to Scott Pilgrim

Director Edgar Wright’s movie version of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s popular graphic novel series Scott Pilgrim is going to include several hand-animated sequences, according to one of the film’s stars.

The news came from actor Brandon Routh, best known for his starring turn in Superman Returns, who spoke with Collider.com at the premiere of Fanboys.

Routh will play one of the ex-boyfriends of the title character’s love interest in the film, which is titled Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and is set to start filming later this year.
