Let's start off by pointing out if you haven't read Y: THE LAST MAN by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra yet, now is a great time to start. The sixty issue series is a great read and if a movie ever happens, you'll want to be familiar with the source material. It's one of my all time favorite series.
There's been talk of a movie for quite some time now. D.J. Caruso was interested in directing and apparently Shia LaBeouf was attached to play, Yorick, the titular character. For various reasons, the movie never got off the ground. Both Caruso and LaBeouf have moved away from the project.
Vulture is reporting that New Line Cinema is still interested in making this movie happen and are making it a priority. They are reported to be pleased with a draft from Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia, both writers from the TV show, Jericho. The next step is to meet with director candidates.
This is the part where we try not to get too excited. There's been talk about this movie happening for too long. Obviously it could work better as a long running cable television show. If the movie is a success, we could hope for three movies. The question is, could the sixty issues be easily adapted into three movies without losing too much? We'll have to keep our fingers crossed that this can actually happen finally.
