Leterrier – Y: The Last Man Should be on TV
Once upon a time, not so long ago the Latino Review reported “an anonymously sourced rumor” that Incredible Hulk director Louis Leterrier (he directed Edward Norton, not Eric Banna) was “circling” a big screen adaptation of the wickedly awesome “Y: The Last Man” comic book. But the project was muddled by so-called “internal differences” at New Line Cinema. A good idea can’t be easily smothered, however, and BSC hears from MTV that now the intriguing sci-fi series may get a chance to come to TV.
The comic book series won the Eisner Award for Best Continuing Series in 2008. It is penned by the inventive Brian K. Vaughn who is also responsible for one of my favorite graphic novels of all time, Pride of Baghdad. The Vertigo comic spans ten paperback volumes which follow Yorick Brown as a bizarre plague destroys every single Y chromosome on the planet at the same time. Suddenly there isn’t a single male in any species anywhere, amazingly, with the exception of Yorick and his pet monkey, also a male.
The material might make better sense in a television format and MTV was able to confirm Leterrier’s interest in an interview. “I’m surprised that it hasn’t gotten made yet,” he said. “The first time I read it, I was in France and doing my little movies, and I didn’t think I would ever have access to these kinds of movies. Midway through Clash of the Titans, I was like, ‘What’s going on with Y The Last Man? I called one of the producers and asked what was going on, and he said it was available. I said, ‘Let’s go!’”
He continued to say, “DJ Caruso was supposed to do it with Shia Labeouf, and that sort of went on and was over, so I went in and said, ‘Please, please let me have it!’ …It’s kind of stuck somewhere now. I still want to do it. I’m passionate about it. But it’s stuck. …I’d love to do it as a TV show or a three-part series.”
When we hear more, you will, too!
