Writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Pia Guerra's Y: The Last Man
has been a tricky comic book to adapt for the screen over the years. However, New Line recently hired commercials and Portal: No Escape
director Dan Trachtenberg to helm the project, with Man of Steel
and Batman Begins
screenwriter David Goyer set to produce.
While promoting Man of Steel
, Goyer confirmed to Crave Online
that the Y
movie was still very much in the works. When asked if he's still attached to the film, Goyer replied, "I am. We've got a script that's as close as it's ever been. That could go into production next year." That script was penned earlier this year by Jericho
writers Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia.
Of course, the big question still remains: is it a standalone movie or trilogy? "The first movie is meant to function as a standalone, but hopefully continue," Goyer said. "Hopefully there will be others."Y: The Last Man
centers on Yorick Brown and his monkey companion Ampersand, the last two males on an Earth now occupied only by women.
