Michael Cera reveals he had “so much fun” filming 2010 Scott pilgrim against the world that it was hard for him once production wrapped.
In a interview with GKposted on YouTube Wednesday, the Barbie actor said that even though it was a long shoot for the Edgar Wright-directed movie, spending about nine months on set, he had such a great time with his fellow cast members.
“We just had the best vibe with everyone,” he recalls. “I think that trickled down through Edgar and the energy he created. We all had to rehearse together and spend a lot of time together before we started making the movie.
In the movie, based on the graphic novel series Scott Pilgrim from Bryan Lee O’Malley, Cera’s Scott Pilgrim, a garage rock bass guitarist, must battle his new girlfriend’s seven evil exes to win her heart and a record deal competition.
The Super bad actor said that by the end of filming he felt like, “This is my world, this is my friend group” and hoped it would “always be like this”. But once he realized that everyone was going their separate ways to work on other projects, he admitted that he was “a little depressed.”
“It all just goes away, and you’re like, ‘Where did everyone go?'” the actor added.
As he got older, he came to accept that this is just how the industry works. But Cera said he was still “sad to lose it” and “could have kept making that (Scott pilgrim against the world) forever, even if it was exhausting.
A new teaser was released on Wednesday Scott Pilgrim leaves, an upcoming Netflix animated series. The cast of the 2010 film also returned to reprise their original roles in the anime, including Cera. The eight episodes of the show will be released on Netflix on November 17.
