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

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.

‘Scooby Doo’ & The Mystery Team Meets ‘Y: The Last Man’ Meets ‘I Am Legend’

Scooby Doo

Someone named Dr. Monster has an awesome artist remix of Scooby Doo in which Velma, the nerdy girl of the group, is the only remaining survivor of the the Mystery Team after zombies, vampires, and other evil creatures have taken over the planet. Click the image to see it in-full.

She isn’t completely alone, as a solid, Dolberman version of Scooby has shed his goofy skin and is ready and willing to protect with highly-aggressive nature. Velma has also grown up in her new role, making sure to always be equipped with a shotgun, machete, and wooden stakes while wearing a cross ’round her neck. She also re-named the van The Misery Machine and pimped it out with flammables, an artillery of weaponry, a giant wooden stake, ultra-powered lights, and a nice little memorial for Fred, Daphne, and Shaggy.

Brian K. Vaughan Breaks Hearts; Leaves ‘Lost’ Writing Team

Vaughan

Very recently an episode of Top Chef Masters aired in which chefs created dishes using only Dharma Initiative-approved food items from the show Lost. These dishes were served to the show’s writing and producing team, including Damon Lindelof, Carlton Cuse, and Brian K. Vaughan. As a massive fan of Lost, I recall being reminded of how awesome it was knowing Vaughan — creator of amazing comic books like Y: The Last Man, Pride of Baghdad, and Runaways — was also a part of this special show. Now this is no more, as it has been confirmed that Brian K. Vaughan has left the show to move on to other things.

In a brief, passing moment during a Q&A session, Damon Lindelof was asked what Vaughan was like, to which he simply replied “Unfortunately he has left for greener pastures. When he first came on the show Jorge Garcia was ecstatic because he’s a huge fan of his work.” This depressing news was later confirmed by ABC.

This of course doesn’t mean that Lost is going to suck or anything extreme like that — Vaughan didn’t even join the show up until season 3 — but the mark he left on the show while he was there will forever be appreciated. Namely, the amount of fantastic pop culture references he slipped into various episodes was especially enjoyable.

Check That! Shia LaBeouf Not As Done With ‘Y: The Last Man’ As Once Thought

Y: The Last Man

Just a few days ago, word swarmed the internet that Shia LaBeouf had decided to step away from the long-rumored Y: The Last Man adaptation (Read: Shia LaBeouf Takes Himself Out Of The ‘Y: The Last Man’ Equation), where he was set to play the lead Yorick Brown behind director D.J. Caruso. LaBeouf had apparently come to the conclusion that the character of Yorick was far too similar to his Transformers character, Sam Witwicky, and that wasn’t a good thing for him.

Many loved this news because, well, Yorick Brown is a hell of a lot more complicated than Sam Witwicky, for one; but if LaBeouf did play the part in Y, he would definitely seem like Sam Witwicky just by default, and this was bad. Unfortunately for those who had become elated with this recent development, it has now quickly been clarified.

Shia LaBeouf sat down with Frosty from Collider and let it all pour out. He explained that Y: The Last Man is his absolute favorite comic book, and it’s D.J. Caruso’s favorite as well, so they still really want to do it. He also clarified that right now, right this moment, the script is nowhere near ready. But because of the similarity of Witwicky and Yorick Brown, he wants to do something else now, but doesn’t want to completely walk away from Y: The Last Man either. This means that LaBeouf is looking to do a couple of other projects over the next few years first, and then, when things are more prepared, he would be willing to look at this project again.

Y: The Last Man

In an unexpected turn-of-events, it appears that actor Shia LaBeouf is going to pass on starring in the feature film adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan‘s brilliant graphic novel, Y: The Last Man, as Yorick Brown — a role that he had long been rumored to be a lock for.

It seems like an eternity ago that we heard that a movie based on Y was on the way. Then it was announced that Disturbia director D.J. Caruso would be directing the movie, and that the then-budding superstar LaBeouf would be starring. All was good in the world then.

Since that time, LaBeouf has become one of the top young faces of Hollywood, starring in blockbuster franchises with Transformers, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. This explosion of popularity has ultimately left a bitter taste in many a mouths and the once-perfect fit for Y: The Last Man suddenly didn’t seem so appealing anymore.

‘Y: The Last Man’ Moving Ahead

YIt is one of those things in my life, like Star Trek: Deep Space 9, that I just missed out on. It wouldn’t have been for lack of trying or interest, it’s just I never knew about Y The Last Man, just as I didn’t know how great DS9 was until after it had finished. It’s definitely on my “to-buy” pile, and though I know the ending, I’m still really looking forward to reading it.

But it looks as if I’d better get my act together, because director D.J. Caruso said that he has just turned in a script to Warner Bros. for the film adaptation of the Brian K. Vaughan comic book series, and that he hopes it will be the next film he and WB/New Line does.
