Y: the Last Man Lands at New Line

Y_The_Last_Man_1.pngY: The Last Man has nabbed the writing directing team of D.J. Caruso and Carl Ellsworth – the same team behind Disturbia, the Rear Window remake.

Caruso will be developing and directing, while Ellsworth is penning the script. J.C. Spink, Chris Bender, and David Goyer are producing.

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 single male mammal in the world. With his male pet monkey, he sets out to find what might have wiped out the world’s male chromosomes.

I wasn’t a big fan of Disturbia, even though it did make four times its cost, so I am a little hesitant on this film – even with Goyer on board. Ellsworth does give me some hope as he has written episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

No word on release date.
