According to Deadline, the long awaited live action adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra’s Y: The Last Man is getting closer to production, now that a director has been found.
Originally, Y: The Last Man was going to get the big screen treatment. Then it was headed to the prime cable network. For some reason, the Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra book just hasn’t gotten the live action treatment – until now.
In this issue: The Big Bad Black Lantern revealed! Scantily clad teenaged girls, and it’s not even Stephen’s birthday! What’s that Watermelon doing there? Meanwhile, Yorick, 355, and Dr. Mann find their way across the midwest, proving what your faithtul podcasters already knew: ain’t nothin’ goin’ on there. Is it Johnny? Is it Danny? Or is it Johnny and Danny? Feel Ghost Rider’s heat, makin’ you hot, burn with me, heaven’s on fire! And the most powerful superhuman force in the universe faces down against a bunch of kids from Westchester and somebody actually wonders about the outcome. In any case, it’s a show, and seeing as how we went to all the trouble of HAVING one and everything… The Major Spoilers podcast is on the air!

From the Wiki:
In the series, on July 17, 2002, something (referred to as a plague) simultaneously kills every mammal possessing a Y chromosome â€” including embryos, fertilized eggs, and even sperm. The only exceptions appear to be Yorick Brown, a young amateur escape artist, and his Capuchin monkey, Ampersand.
