Bill Hader has a whole hell of a lot going on lately. We detailed two of his upcoming projects last night — Henchmen and Vaughn Meader — but there are more.
One is The Hand Job, a film that is being spearheaded by his wife Maggie Carey. She wrote the script, which ended up on the 2009 Black List, and plans to direct with star Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation, Funny People, Scott Pilgrim) as a graduating high school girl in 1993 who wants to gather some sexual experience before going off to college. There are now quite a few more actors lined up, including Alia Shawkat, Mae Whitman, Donald Glover and Andy Samberg. More details after the break. Read More »

A few weeks ago I got news of a pretty cool little project: as part of the promotional efforts for Scott Pilgrim vs the World, Universal approached [adult swim] about making something related to the film. The idea concocted by the folks at the network was to animate a piece of one of Bryan Lee O’Malley‘s graphic novels that didn’t end up in Edgar Wright‘s movie.
Universal, Wright and O’Malley all got behind the idea, and the result is a four-minute animated short that illustrates the beginning of the friendship between Scott Pilgrim and Kim Pine. I got a look at the nearly-completed short during Comic Con, and now we can show you a clip from the finished project.

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.

As you probably already know by now, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World tells the story of a 23-year-old Canadian slacker (Michael Cera) who must battle and defeat Ramona Flower’s (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) seven evil ex-boyfriends to win her heart.
In director Edgar Wright‘s latest photoblog, we get our first look at…. possible spoiler warning… Ramona’s fourth “Evil Ex” — Roxanne “Roxy” Richter. That’s right, not all of Ramona’s Evil Exes are boys. Richter was Ramona’s college roommate and lesbian fling. Who is the actresses behind Bryan Lee O’Malley’s sketch? It is Mae Whitman, who most of you probably recognize as Ann Veal from Arrested Development. She also played the President’s daughter in Independence Day way back when.
