Michael Cera: ‘I would have done anything with Edgar Wright’ – video interview

The pair talk about 'Scott Pilgrim Vs The World'

Michael Cera has told NME he would have worked with director Edgar Wright on almost any project he suggested to him before the pair came together for Scott Pilgrim Vs The World.

The actor was talking in a video interview that you can watch on the right now.

The Juno actor explained: “I would have done anything with Edgar, I would’ve read it first, but I would have done almost anything.”

The pair also spoke about the soundtrack for Scott Pilgrim Vs The World, which boasts the likes of Beck and Metric pretending to be bands in the film, while Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich oversaw the score.

Wright said: “Beck writes the songs for Sex Bob-omb which is Michael Cera’s band, but he’s kind of writing Sex Bob-omb songs rather than writing new Beck songs. I think all of the artists, him and Metric and Broken Social Scene, had fun playing their respective roles.”

Actor Cera explained that the two weeks of band rehearsals were a “great time for us to all get to know each other”, but he didn’t get to put his musical talents to use on film as he mimed along.

Scott Pilgrim Vs The World is released in cinemas today (August 25).
