The long awaited Y: The Last Man movie adaptation is as "close as it's ever been" to happening. Which fills us all with excitement and dread. Please be good. Please be good.
In an interview with Crave Online, producer David S. Goyer spilled the beans that Y: The Last Man is actually getting closer to becoming a real movie:
"I am. We've got a script that's as close as it's ever been," he said. "That could go into production next year.... The first movie is meant to function as a standalone," he said, "but hopefully continue. Hopefully there will be others."
Created at Vertigo Comics, the series was penned by the great Brian K. Vaughan. The book follows the travels of the last man on Earth. But he's not alone, there are plenty of women left on Earth, just no men. Still not sure how this series can translate into a standalone film, or perhaps that's just because we'd rather see it as an HBO series. Oh well, at least this is progress!
