Back in March we told you that New Line had finally found writers for the big screen adaptation of Y: The Last Man. Now, months later, it sounds as if the studio is finally ready to get down to business.
Vulture reports 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.
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.
