Edgar gave me the ok to post these.
Brie Larson in the UNUSED RED WIG from Scott Pilgrim Vs the World.
Envy Adams had red hair on the original book cover.
When Brie came in for hair & makeup tests, they tried the red first, nobody was super into it, then they tried the blonde and obviously we all loved it.
Edgar was actually the last holdout insisting that they try to stick closer to the book with the red hair!
I’m still leaving her hair red in the color version of the books, though. Red on a cartoon character just has a completely different look and feel.
They’re both cool!
Look at that 19 year old child in those photos, jeeeeeez.
Q. With the color versions did you feel pressure to color things that would have actually been black/white if the project was color initially?
Really the opposite is true. A lot of stuff was colored black and white in the movie out of respect to the comics’ black & white origins — but in my imagination, this stuff was all very colorful to begin with.
Right now we’re starting work on the color vol 3, and I have to decide what to do with Todd and Envy, who were colored totally monochromatic in the movie. With Envy i’ve definitely decided to throw caution to the wind and color her like an exploded box of crayons, so yeah.
