Beck has contributed songs to the upcoming film “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World”, based on the Bryan Lee O’Malley comicbook of the same name. Starring Michael Cera, Jason Schwartzman, and Anna Kendrick, Beck’s contributions centered on writing songs to be performed by Pilgrim’s (played by Michael Cera) band, “Sex Bob-Omb.”
Slated for release on August 13, there will also be a soundtrack album featuring the Beck-penned tracks along with other songs by Broken Social Scene, Metric, and Cornelius.
The film is being directed by Edgar Wright and scored by Nigel Godrich.
