Michael Bacall to Adapt Scott Pilgrim

Universal and Marc Platt Productions have hired Michael Bacall to adapt comic book Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Life, reports Variety.

The first in a three-part series by Bryan Lee O’Malley, published last year by Oni Press, follows a suburban slacker who finds himself in a kung fu tale, battling his dream girl’s seven evil ex-boyfriends to win her hand.

“Shaun of the Dead” helmer Edgar Wright is aboard to direct.
