This epic adventure is set amid the encounter of European and Native American cultures during the founding of the Jamestown Settlement in 1607. Inspired by the legend of John Smith and Pocahontas, this story is a sweeping exploration of love, loss and discovery — both a celebration and an elegy of the America that was? and the America that was yet to come. Against a historically accurate Virginia backdrop, two strong-willed characters — a passionate and noble young native woman and an ambitious soldier of fortune – are torn between the undeniable requirements of their civic duty and the inescapable demands of the human heart.
Juno actor Michael Cera is in final talks to star in Scott Pilgrim’s Little Life.
Based on Bryan Lee O’Malley’s graphic novel, the film centres on a young man who finds he can only win the heart of his dream woman by defeating her evil ex-boyfriends. Edgar Wright (‘Space’ ‘Hot Fuzz’) will direct the film based on a script he co-wrote with Michael Bacall. Wright has previously worked with Cera in a viral video used to promote Superbad.
The film is due to begin production in the autumn.
TIDBIT: Cera auditioned for the role of Cole Sear in The Sixth Sense, which eventually went to Haley Joel Osment.
