Finally, there is some news on the Y: The Lat Man movie. Superherohype is reporting that “ New Line Cinema has hired commercials director Dan Trachtenberg to helm their upcoming adaptation of Brian K. Vaughn and Pia Guerra's modern classic Y: The Last Man”.
Trachtenberg is a commercial director known for his fan film Portal: No Escape (2011). The screenplay is being penned by Matthew Federman (Jericho, Human Target) and Stephen Scaia (Warehouse 13, Jericho).
Y: The Last Man Synopsis: Y: The Last Man tells the story of Yorick Brown, a young man who, along with his capuchin monkey, somehow survives a catastrophic event that kills off every living creature with a Y chromosome. Left in a world of only women, Yorick teams with a government operative, 355, to try and uncover the truth about the plague and why he and he alone made it through alive.
The comic ran for sixty issues and has been collected in multiple trades.
So Maniacs, who do you see starring as Yorick and 355? Do you think a feature film is appropriate for this comic or should it be a TV series?
