Vertigo's Y: The Last Man Becoming A Major Motion Picture?
Another modern day classic may be headed to the silver screen.
Y: The Last Man looks to be on it’s way, as Vulture reported that sources have revealed that the project is a priority for New Line Cinema. A script the studio is pleased with is in, which comes from Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia, both former Jericho writers. So, it looks like the hunt is on for a director now, this after years of being in development hell.
Those not familiar with the book, Y: The Last Man comes from Brian K. Vaughn, who has done some amazing comic in his time, including Pride of Baghdad and Marvel Comic’s Runaways. It’s the story of Yorick and his Capuchin monkey in a world where every male species has died except for them. A haunting, emotional, action filled book, Y would be a great property to make the transition into a live action film.
