In September we told you that the big screen adaptation of Y The Last Man had hit the fast track. Now, months later, a director has been named to bring this mysterious world to life.
According to Deadline New Line Cinema is moving forward with the cult classic Y The Last Man, setting Dan Trachtenberg to direct the film. The helmer, with a commercials background, put himself on the map after generating his own trailer for a faux movie based on the video game Portal.
“Jericho” writers Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia have penned the script.
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.
