Back in March, we reported that writers Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia came on board to write Y: The Last Man for New Line Cinema. Today, we have word that the studio is "very pleased" with the script, and are currently seeking directors.
The project is an adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan's graphic novel that chronicle the exploits of a man and his pet monkey, the only survivors from a plague that wiped out every male human and mammal on Earth. They also must contend with a tribe of Amazonian women, determined to wipe out Earth's last man. D.J. Caruso was the last director attached to the project before departing two years ago. Louis Leterrier was also circling the adaptation at one time, although a deal was never reached.
Our report from March revealed David S. Goyer, Chris Bender, and J.C. Spink are producing. It isn't known when (or if) production will begin, although things certainly seem to be looking up for this languishing adaptation. Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia are best known for their work on the small screen, writing and producing for shows such as Jericho, Warehouse 13, and Human Target.
