Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is set to get a cinematic re-release 10 years after it first hit screens.

The film's director, writer and producer Edgar Wright revealed the news during a virtual watch party of the movie hosted by The Oscars, and he later confirmed it on Twitter.

"If you thought watching Scott Pilgrim from home was great, wait until it's back @DolbyCinema, only in theatres! #DolbyVision #DolbyAtmos #ScottPilgrim #WatchWithTheAcademy," he wrote.

The re-release, which is part of a partnership with Dolby Cinema, will mark the ten-year anniversary of the film this summer, although of course there's currently no word on when the re-release can happen with many cinemas around the world closed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The 2010 action-comedy, based on a series of graphic novels, stars Michael Cera as Scott Pilgrim, a slacker musician who falls in love with a girl named Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and finds himself having to battle her seven evil exes in order to be with her.

It starred a number of big names, including Captain Marvel's Brie Larson, Captain America star Chris Evans, Arrowverse star Brandon Routh and Pitch Perfect's Anna Kendrick.

Winstead recently revealed that she would be interested in exploring the characters of Scott Pilgrim again in a follow-up movie, saying it would be "so cool".

"I would be so curious to know what happened to these characters when they're in their mid 30s as opposed to the sort of 20 slacker thing," she said.

"So I think it would be really interesting. We always talked about a sequel when we were doing it, but we always imagined it would be like, still like a year later."

It looks like the ball is in Edgar Wright's court now...
