The big-screen version of 21 Jump Street finally has a female lead. Brie Larson (United States of Tara, Scott Pilgrim vs the World) will play Molly in the rather unlikely R-rated comedy/action translation of the TV show that launched the career of a young Johnny Depp in 1987.
Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs) are directing from a script by Josh Appelbaum with Michael Bacall, Joe Gazzam, Jonah Hill and André Nemec. Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum will play the primary roles as cops investigating the drug trade in a high school; Ice Cube is their captain. The Lord/Miller team had me locked after Cloudy, and this one has been talked up as a Bad Boys-style action picture. Let’s hope that really happens. [Deadline]
After the break, Luke Evans joins Robert Carlyle in the UK cop thriller Dogs of Law while Pierce Brosnan signs for All You Need is Love. Read More »

We’ve seen a teaser and a full trailer for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Edgar Wright‘s adaptation of the graphic novel series by Bryan Lee O’Malley. Now there’s an international trailer that sells the tale of Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) a bass player and sorta-slacker who falls for Ramona Flowers (Mary-Elizabeth Winstead) but must defeat her seven evil exes before they can truly be together. Lots of new footage in this one, including a good look at Brandon Routh. Read More »
Universal Pictures has released the first full-length movie trailer for Edgar Wright‘s upcoming action-comedy Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. Based on the comic book series written by Bryan Lee O’Malley, Pilgrim tells the story of a charming and jobless 22-year-old who must defeat his new girlfriend’s seven evil ex-boyfriends in order to win her heart. The new trailer will be attached to Get Him To The Greek, but has been put online once the Scott Pilgrim facebook page reached 100,000 fans (which happened at 1:30am on Monday morning).
The new trailer is pretty awesome, and has me even more excited about the film than the initial teaser. The only thing I didn’t like was the lame “it’s on like Donkey Kong” tagline which I’m sure was the “genius” idea of the Universal’s marketing team. Watch the trailer now embedded after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.

You might not know who Aubrey Plaza is right now, but you will soon enough. The Upright Citizen’s Brigade comic was featured in the Sundance comedy hit Mystery Team and has co-starring roles in Judd Apatow’s Funny People and Edgar Wright‘s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. Speaking of which, it has been quite a while since we last posted an update on the comic book adaptation. Today, Wright posted the first photo of Plaza (seen above), who plays Julie Powers, the obnoxious on-off-on-again girlfriend of Stephen Stills, the lead singer and guitarist of Scott’s band, Sex Bob-omb, and Stacey Pilgrim’s (Anna Kendrick) coffee shop co-worker. And guess what? You can see the first photo of the band rehearsing after the jump, as well as a photo from and their rivals — The Clash At Demonhead.
