Anime production studio Science SARU, which was involved in Star Wars: Visions among other projects, will produce animation for the series if it gets the go-ahead.

Fans recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Scott Pilgrim film directed by Edgar Wright, which was released in 2010. As part of the celebration, Ubisoft’s Scott Pilgrim beat ’em up was also re-released on modern platforms.

Originally a six-part comic series, Scott Pilgrim is the story of a twenty-something slacker living in the mysterious land of Toronto, Canada who must defeat his crush’s seven evil ex-boyfriends. The movie was surprisingly successful in condensing the entire story into one movie, but in many ways it’s better-suited for a television format, which has the potential to give the characters some room to breathe and develop.

It appears to be early days for the project, and it’s unknown if it will eventually get made. In the meantime, the movie still holds up pretty well.
