EW – This reunion is in support of Water for People. Please visit the Scott Pilgrim page if you are able to make a donation.

With each passing year, the list of actors in writer-director Edgar Wright’s 2010 graphic novel adaptation Scott Pilgrim vs. the World gets retrospectively more impressive. So, what was the chance, even in this time of lockdown, that Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Chris Evans, Anna Kendrick, Alison Pill, Aubrey Plaza, Mae Whitman, and Jason Schwartzman would all be available to take part in a 10th anniversary table read? The answer, it turns out, was “very good indeed.” All the aforementioned stars recently reunited (remotely) for a read-through of the screenplay along with fellow actors Ellen Wong, Satya Bhabha, Brandon Routh, and Mark Webber, Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O’Malley, screenplay co-writer Michael Bacall, and Wright himself.

In addition to celebrating the film’s 10th anniversary, the idea behind the reunion was to benefit the charity Water for People, a global nonprofit that helps people bring clean water and sanitation solutions to their communities. As Pill says at the start of a just-released video that documents the event, “We are here to support Water for People. This pandemic has laid bare the huge gaps in critical infrastructure and one of the best ways to prevent the spread of disease isn’t available to over three billion people. They don’t have clean water, so they can’t wash their hands, they don’t have sanitation solutions so diseases can spread quickly.”

People can donate via the Scott Pilgrim page on the Water for People website. Those who do so will get the chance to win one of the drawings completed by Bryan Lee O’Malley during the course of the table read.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World stars Cera as Scott Pilgrim, a bassist for the fictitious Toronto band Sex Bob-omb, who dumps his high school student girlfriend Knives Chau (Wong) for a Rollerblading Amazon courier named Ramona Flowers (Winstead). The problem? Ramona’s most recent partner, Gideon Graves (Schwartzman), has formed the League of Evil Exes with Ramona’s other former beaus, many of whom Scott battles in fantastical fights.

Released in August 2010, the movie was a box office disappointment but was beloved by many who did see it and rapidly acquired the status of a cult classic. As Evans noted in EW’s recent oral history of the film, “The Marvel fan base is rabid, but the Scott Pilgrim fandom is just as dedicated and loyal as any fandom I’ve ever seen.”

Dolby Cinema will celebrate the film’s 10-year anniversary with an upcoming theatrical re-release.

THRMomentum Pictures has acquired U.S. rights to the suspense thriller Black Bear, starring Aubrey Plaza.

The feature, which premiered at Sundance, follows an expectant couple confronted with an out-of-town guest. Suffering from writer’s block, the guest seeks solace in the woods but instead finds herself at the center of a twisted love triangle.

Christopher Abbott and Sarah Gadon also star in the movie from writer-director Lawrence Michael Levine.

Tandem Pictures’ Julie Christeas and Jonathan Blitstein produced Black Bear, along with Richard J. Bosner of Blue Creek Pictures. Levine and Plaza also produced, along with Sophia Takal and Oakhurst’s Marina Grasic and Jai Khanna.

Black Bear is such a singular piece of filmmaking. From the first frame we were enthralled by Lawrence’s inventive storytelling,” said Dylan Wilcox, senior vp acquisitions for Momentum Pictures, which will announce a release plan at a later date. “The trio of lead actors all give incredible performances, and we’re excited to share it with audiences across the country.

CAA Media Finance brokered the deal on behalf of the filmmakers.

Variety – The good folks of the Parks and Recreation Department in Pawnee, Indiana are back for more hijinks, well, at least for a little while.

NBC has announced that the cast of its iconic sitcom “Parks and Rec” is set to reunite for a half-hour scripted special airing on April 30, in aid of COVID-19. Almost all the original cast members, including Amy Poehler, Rashida Jones, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Chris Pratt, Adam Scott, Rob Lowe, Jim O’Heir, and Retta, will be back in character for the special. Expect several guest stars from the original show to pop in too.

Five years after “Parks and Rec” finished its seven-season run, this new story draws from events happening day, as Pawnee’s most dedicated civil servant, Leslie Knope (Poehler), is determined to stay connected to her friends in a time of social distancing. The special, spearheaded by co-creator Michael Shur, will help raise money for Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund.

Like a lot of other people, we were looking for ways to help and felt that bringing these characters back for a night could raise some money,” said Schur. “I sent a hopeful email to the cast and they all got back to me within 45 minutes. Our old ‘Parks and Rec’ team has put together one more 30-minute slice of (quarantined) Pawnee life and we hope everyone enjoys it. And donates!

The original “Parks and Recreation,” a Universal Television production, ran from 2009 to 2015 and was nominated for a hatful of Emmys and Golden Globes throughout its run. Poehler won the show’s lone Globe in 2014 for her performance.

In such uncertain times, we can’t think of anyone better than Leslie Knope to unite our country with her unbridled enthusiasm and compassion,” said Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, co-presidents of scripted programming at NBC Entertainment. “A huge thank you to Mike Schur and the cast of ‘Parks and Recreation’ for putting this wonderful special together and bringing a smile to all our faces while raising money for such a worthwhile cause.

At the show’s PaleyFest 10th anniversary reunion last year, several cast members said they would be only too happy to reprise their characters for a revival, but only if Schur was on board.

“Whenever Mike is ready, I’ll put on my suit again for sure,” said Poehler at the time, with Offerman saying that “we’d all come running” if Schur “came up with an original, new idea.”

“Parks and Recreation” is a production of Deedle-Dee Productions, Fremulon, 3 Arts Entertainment and Universal TV. Schur, Greg Daniels, Howard Klein, David Miner, Morgan Sackett and Dean Holland serve as executive producers on the series.
