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.
