Between the success of Saga and this surprise news, it seems as if everything’s coming up Brian K. Vaughan:
Well-placed sources tell us that New Line Cinema may finally be getting around to making a feature-film adaptation of the graphic novel, Y: The Last Man.
Of course, when a project has been in development for almost a decade, it can sometimes be difficult to get excited about the latest twist or turn. But even still, we hear that the studio is very pleased with a draft from former Jericho writers Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia, and has already begun the process of meeting with director candidates to hire for the project.
Hands up everyone who thought that this movie was as dead as the entire male population on Vaughan and Pia Guerra’s Vertigo series? Exactly. Nice to see that we were all wrong.
(And where is Guerra these days? Outside of her Doctor Who: The Forgotten series with Tony Lee a few years back, I can’t think of anything she’s done post-Y. Is she off working on something wonderful and I’ve been missing it?)
