Has Scott Pilgrim Found His Dream Woman?
Winstead in talks for Wright’s new flick

16 May 2008  |  Written by Glen Ferris

Scott Pilgirm (aka Superbad’s Michael Cera) could well have found the object of his affection in the rather lovely shape of Mary Elizabeth Winstead. The Death Proof/Die Hard 4.0 star is in negotiations to star in Edgar Wright’s adaptation of the cult comic book in Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World.

Based on Bryan Lee O’Malley graphic novel, the movie will find Winstead will playing a delivery girl named Ramona V. Flowers, the dream woman of our 23-year-old slacker hero who must do battle with her seven evil ex-boyfriends in order to win her heart.

While this is unlikely to the meaty role that Winstead really needs following a slew of unchallenging supporting parts, Scott Pilgrim certainly sounds like it could play to her spunky girl-next-door strengths.

We’ll keep you up to date with all the latest developments as we get them.

Pah. this role is plenty meaty for her, Ramona's a really interesting character in the books. And Winstead is a great choice. How suitable she is for the role remains to be seen, but I think she's got the ability to pull it off. More
