Edgar Wright Interview With Den Of Geek
Edgar Wright spoke to Den of Geek about the reaction to Scott Pilgrim Vs The World, among other things.
Here's an excerpt:
DOG: Why do you think that Scott Pilgrim and your work in general attract comments about generation gaps and 'geek' culture, even though they're quite accessible? Do you ever stop and wonder whether the in-jokes and references harm your films?
EW: I think maybe some people read too much into them sometimes. It's certainly not meant to be a barrier and indeed the separate elements of Scott Pilgrim - romance, music, action, comic books, video games - are all pretty popular. I would hope that are not any in-jokes that stop the film dead, it’s certainly not my intention to that. I just wanted to make a film that was a blast to watch and listen to, with characters that you could identify with.
DOG: Also, for a change, you weren't working with the Spaced alumni on this film. Instead, you were working with a bunch of quite young actors. What was it like being older than your cast?
EW: It was a lot of fun. It actually reminded me of making the first series of Spaced. The cast were young and game and up for anything. It was really fun to bring together this little family on set and it’s really sweet to me that the whole cast with no exceptions are still hang out together to this day.
