The Movie God   |  

Y: The Last Man

A little over a year ago it was reported that the long in development movie based on Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra‘s comic book series Y: The Last Man was no more, and that it was instead being developed as a TV series for FX.

The adaptation is still in development today, but has now taken a big step toward becoming a reality. It’s being reported that Michael Green has signed on to be the series’ showrunner. Green is already currently the showrunner of another highly anticipated TV series, Starz’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods along with co-showrunner Bryan Fuller. Fuller also took on a second showrunner job, the upcoming Star Trek: Discovery TV series, but departed that project last month.

‘Y: The Last Man’ TV Series Being Developed By FX
The Movie God   |  

Y: The Last Man Image

A movie adaptation of writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Pia Guerra‘s extraordinary comic book series Y: The Last Man has been in the works for many years now, but it never felt right. The series ran 60 issues, and there was far too much great content to fit into a movie. Even a trilogy of movies would have been difficult. On top of that many believed the movie would have to be R-rated, and that was something the movie studio wasn’t very likely to do. No, this was something that belonged on TV somewhere with few rules and restrictions such as HBO.

If you were among those who wished with crossed fingers that Y: The Last Man would not work out as a movie and would one day end up being turned into a TV series, it appears that your wishes are coming true. It’s being reported that the comic is now being developed as a series at FX.

The Movie God   |  

Y: The Last Man Rising

Another day, another pretty fantastic fan film to be enjoyed.

This time around it’s the ultra-popular Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra graphic novel Y: The Last Man, which has been inside the Hollywood machine for multiple years now as attempted adaptations have failed over and over, getting the fan film treatment with Y: The Last Man Rising. But this isn’t your basic backyard fan film; no, no—this is a 21-minute small-scale blockbuster with a full cast and crew and some impressive special effects work.

The short covers two critical moments from Vaughan and Guerra’s work: the event that killed off almost every man, and the Amazons discovering that one man, Yorick Brown, is still alive.

You can check out Y: The Last Man Rising below!

Y: The Last Man

Much time has passed since we last heard about the always coming but never arriving movie adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra‘s incredible comic book series, Y: The Last Man.

Back in November of 2010 it looked like the long-attached director/star duo of D.J. Caruso and Shia LaBeouf were out and that The Incredible Hulk and Clash of the Titans director Louis Leterrier was a candidate to take over. Not much has been said since then, but now it would appear that New Line is ready to make another go of it.

‘Y: The Last Man’ Adaptation Still Stuck; To Make Movies Or A TV Series?
The Movie God   |  

For what seems like an eternity now, an adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan‘s incredible graphic novel series, Y: The Last Man, has been in the works.

For most of that time, Disturbia and Eagle Eye director D.J. Caruso has been attached along with his star from those two movies, Shia LaBeouf. At first, LaBeouf seemed a perfect fit for the lead role of Yorick Brown, but as time has moved on and the actor has become a much bigger star, this team has felt less and less fitting and things never played out.

Since then, The Incredible Hulk and Clash of the Titans director Louis Leterrier‘s name has been said to be in the mix to take it on, and while nothing official has come of that, MTV was able to talk to him recently about where things stand in the ever-difficult task of bringing a live-action version of the graphic novel to our eyes.
