May 16, 2003 - Y: The Last Man / project announced

Scooped on Sunday, March 28, 2010

Coming Attractions has learned that the hit science fiction comic book series Y: The Last Man has been optioned by New Line Cinema as a feature film. Created by writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Pia Guerra, this ongoing series debuted last summer from Vertigo/DC Comics and immediately became one of the most talked about and critically praised books in the comics industry today.

Y: The Last Man is the story of Yorick Brown, a twentysomething amateur escape artist who appears to be the sole human male survivor of a mysterious plague that instantly killed every other male mammal with a Y chromosome on the planet. Even more enigmatic is that a male monkey named Ampersand, whom Yorick was in the process of training for disabled people, also survived the plaque unscathed. As the world's nations struggle to bury the billions left dead and rebuild society, powerful and dangerous groups learn of Yorick and Ampersand's existence and seek to capture the last two males on the planet -- or finish the job that the plaque started.

The WHOIS registery lists the owners of Internet domain names. It's through this online resource that we discovered the domain names www.ythelastman.com and www.ythelastmanmovie.com were registered by a representative of New Line Cinema on March 4 of this year.

Furthermore, the 4Filmmakers website, a film industry resource website, posted a new listing for a Y movie only yesterday. Listed as producers on the Y film are J.C. Spink and Chris Bender, Mason Novick and David Goyer. New Line Cinema is listed as the studio where the project is set up. Production companies working on the movie are Benderspink (the Hollywood development firm owned by Spink and Bender) and Phantom Four Films, Goyer's own production company.

Goyer, if you may recall, is the screenwriter of the two Blade films as well as The Crow: City of Angels. He is rumored to be writing the latest draft of Batman 5 for Memento director Chris Nolan. Last year Goyer made his directorial debut with Zigzag and is attached to direct the DreamWorks picture The Descent as well as New Line's Darksiders. He is also an accomplished comic book writer himself, currently penning the DC Comics series JSA.

To date no official announcement from New Line Cinema has been made, but here's some free advice to any of Hollywood's leading men looking for work: if you've ever wanted to be the last man on Earth, you need to get your agent on the phone right now and have them call New Line today. There may be a monkey in your future.
