The Y: The Last Man movie is back on (for now)

New Line Cinema has finally hired a new director for its long-gestating movie adaptation of Brian K. Vaughn's fabulous Vertigo comic Y: The Last Man. The bad news? The director has only professionally directed commercials. The good news? This particular commercial director is Dan Trachtenberg, who also made that fabulous Portal fan flick "No Escape." That's quite a leap, but still, "No Escape" is well-made enough (and authetic to its source material) that's I'm more than willing to give Trachtenberg the benefit of the doubt here. Assuming, you know, the movie actually gets made this time.
