This story has been floating around the interwebs for a few years now and it seems as though New Line Cinema has found a writer to tackle the tale of Y The Last Man. Read on for the details.


According to THR writing duo Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia are in final negotiations to write New Line Cinema’s adaptation of the acclaimed Vertigo comic book. J.C. Spink, Chris Bender, and David Goyer are producing. Mason Novick and Jake Weiner are executive producing.

The comic, created by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra, centers on Yorick, an escape artist who is the last survivor of a mysterious plague that has killed every male mammal in the world. With his pet monkey, he sets out to find what might have wiped out the world’s male chromosomes.

The project has been long in development at New Line and came close to taking off in an incarnation with a script by Carl Ellsworth and D.J. Caruso attached as director.

This is an amazing story and very much sought after in original prints. If you get a chance, pick it up in bound volume form.
