Logan Lerman & Odessa Young in Shirley
Best known for his roles in the Percy Jackson series of teen fantasy films & the book-to-film adaptation of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Lerman has since gone on to lớn prominent parts in Fury and Darren Aronofsky"s Noah.

Known for playing an outcast & mildly geeky character, he would perfectly fit Scott"s self-deprecating, albeit lovable, personality. He would also bring a self-assured air that Michael Cera did not have & which many fans of the comics have argued for.

anya taylor joy as gina in peaky blinders
Proving her status as one of the most sought-after actors in the industry in Netflix"s The Queen"s Gambit, Anya Taylor-Joy has received several prestigious accolades (including a Golden Globe and Screen Actor"s Guild award) for her work in both film & television.

Saturday Night Live cast member since 2013, Kyle Mooney has proven time & again that he has the comedic chops và acting talent to lớn be the lead villain in an over-the-top-film like Scott Pilgrim.

7 Olivia Liang as Knives Chau

Now known as the heroic Nicky Shen in the CW"s martial arts program, Kung Fu, Liang is a relative newcomer with only a handful of guest appearances & bit parts in well-known television programs. Her fire & tenacity shown in Legacies as well as Kung Fu would match the proud groupie of Scott"s band, Sex Bob-omb.

Knives starts out as being totally head-over-heels in love with Scott, but after he "forgets" khổng lồ break up with her before moving on khổng lồ Ramona, her darker side emerges.

Her sharp sense of humor and cool demeanor are inherently endearing, & this would more than match the cold socialite that is Julie Powers.

With kudos from her lead role in The Farewell, not to lớn mention a fan-favorite performance in Jumanji: The Next Level, the rapper-turned-actor could easily be seen as Sex Bob-omb"s bitter, sardonic drummer.

As Scott"s former girlfriend, Kim holds a fair amount of resentment towards him, và her commentary on his love life throughout the film is both humorous and brutal. Plus, fans can already hear Awkwafina shout, "We are Sex Bob-omb!"

3 Taylor Swift as Envy Adams
