Scott Pilgrim Features Beck and Broken Social Scene, Promises To Be Epic

We have to admit, we winced a little when we saw what was going on with the Scott Pilgrim movie: not only were they condensing all of the amazing comics into one single movie, but they also picked indie "it boy" Michael Cera to play the movie's eponymous protagonist. Well, now we're reconsidering our skepticism.

Just over the wire is word that the soundtrack will be graced by the likes of Beck and Broken Social Scene. Both artists have been commissioned by the filmmakers to provide the soundtracks to Scott's band (Beck) and his nemesis Crash and The Boys (BSS). Granted, a soundtrack does not a movie make, but we're thinking this may come pretty damn close.
