**Update #2: The full OST tracklist has arrived.
**Update: We updated this story with new info + a trailer song mixtape.
That’s right, we’re calling it. Just take one look at the few leaked details surrounding Edgar Wright’s upcoming film Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, a loose adaption of the popular Scott Pilgrim comic book series, and you’ll see that this thing is totes shaping up to be the best music-oriented film and soundtrack of next year.
As previously reported, Radiohead collaborator Nigel Godrich has taken on the producer role for the project, which will include new music from Beck, Broken Social Scene, and Metric. The involvement of those names alone would safely land this thing into the “epic” category, but we have more names to add to the list.
Playlist reports that Japanese producers/musicians Cornelius and Dan “The Automator” Nakamura are also contributing music to the film, and, according to the director, Beck will battle Cornelius—vicariously through Michael Cera’s lead character, of course—in a synthesizer versus bass guitar fight. Well, that should be fun, right? You can watch a behind-the-scenes video of what looks to be that scene here.
Now if you need further proof that Wright is taking the musical elements of his movie very seriously, he also hired Sloan frontman Chris Murphy to coach the actors for live performance scenes. Not to mention, we could start raving about the fact that Jason Schwartzman, aka Coconut Records, is also in the film, but you should just check out the cast for yourself, otherwise we’ll be here all day.
