Though a box office disappointment upon release, Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim vs. the World has been one of the most celebrated graphic novel adaptations of the last decade amongst fans and critics and though a sequel isn’t going to happen, the co-writer/director has revealed there may be a new avenue for the material.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly to discuss the film’s 10th anniversary, Wright revealed that though a live-action sequel is definitely not going to happen, he and the source material’s creator Bryan Lee O’Malley have been cooking up something else.

There’s some plans — and there’s nothing official yet — but there are some plans to revisit the material in an animation way,” Wright said. “We’ve been talking with Bryan and with Jared for a while [about]: What if we did something with the books in anime form? It’s being discussed as we speak.”

This exciting tidbit comes on the heels of the announcement in May that the cult classic action comedy would be returning to theaters to celebrate its anniversary, which was originally set to hit theaters in August, though said re-release has been postponed indefinitely due to the global pandemic.
