I’ve been covering the film adaptation of Y: The Last Man for a very long time. It’s gone through multiple directors during its time in development hell, and now the clock has run out. Dan Trachtenberg was the last one set to direct, but when asked about the project yesterday on Twitter, he replied [via /Film] “Not happening. But it’s in trusted hands (the creators).”
Y: The Last Man is a comic series created by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra. It follows Yorick Brown, who is the last man on Earth after a virus wipes out every other male (the title is not misleading). It’s an amazing book, and part of me is glad that it won’t be making the jump to the big screen. If it had to be adapted, TV would be a better home, and it turns out Trachtenberg agrees. Hit the jump for his thoughts on what Y: The Last Man could have been.
