Sound the hallelujah chorus -- 'Y:The Last Man' has finally left development hell and ascended to big-screen heaven!
It's been almost a decade since New Line Cinema announced the adaptation of the graphic novel about the sci-fi-dystopia-with-an-adorable-monkey. Brian K. Vaughn's 'Y:The Last Man' follows Yorick Brown and his pet monkey as they journey to reunite with Yorick's girlfriend and maaaybe save the human race along the way (you know, if there's time). Two years ago Y's director quit over misgivings about shoehorning the entire 60-issue series into one film, and fans had all but given up hope...until now!
We reported back in March that 'Jericho' writers Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia had been tapped to rewrite the script and now, according to Vulture's "well-placed sources," New Line has re-upped their interest in Y! The studio is said to be "very pleased" with the latest draft of the script and are already meeting with possible directors. No word yet on who's in the running to direct or star, but way back in 2008 producers were looking at Shia Labeouf to play the lead opposite Alicia Keys or Zoe Saldana as Yorick's badass bodyguard, Agent 355.
So details are scarce so far, but New Line's apparent enthusiasm is definitely a good sign! Who do you think they should pick to lead the project? And how they heck are they going to squeeze all of that material into one film?! Leave your thoughts down in the comments, and we'll be sure to keep you updated as more is revealed! I'm Erin Darling, thanks for watching ClevverMovies!
