The Y The Last Man movie adaptation is officially dead, once again. Almost-director Dan Trachtenberg was asked about the project on Twitter and said the following: “Not happening. But it’s in trusted hands (the creators).” Most people figured as much, considering Tranchtenberg is currently prepping his Bad Robot film Valencia, but this was the first public confirmation of Y‘s current status.
We took the opportunity to ask Trachtenberg about the project and, to our surprise, he was kind enough to oblige. He explained that his Y: The Last Man was based on the first two trades in Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra‘s amazing series, with some characters deleted and action scenes expanded. He talked about what films he looked to for inspiration and which were referenced in the script. And then confirmed the rights reverted back to Vaughan sometime ago and that the project’s future is totally up in the air.

In an instant, every man on planet Earth dies. Only women remain, which is fine by them, until they realize without men the human race doesn’t have a chance of surviving. That makes that fact that one man survived — one man on the entire planet — kind of a big deal. That’s the basic plot of Brian K. Vaughan‘s Y: The Last Man, a 60-issue comic book series that ran from 2002-2008. Hailed as a modern classic, it’s been on Hollywood’s wish list of comic book properties since 2006. However, the epic story and downer premise have made an adaptation near impossible.
Filmmakers have tried though. DJ Caruso was long attached with Shia LaBeouf aiming to star. Louis Letterier took a crack at it and, most recently, Jericho writers Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia were tasked with rewriting the script. It turns out New Line Cinema, which owns the rights, loves the duo’s take on the property and have now put the film back on the fast track. It’s a top priority and they’re currently meeting with directors. Read more after the jump. Read More »
