Y: The Last Man Lands a Director


I think that the Y: The Last Man film project may be the poster child for the term “development hell.” The film has been in some form of development for about a decade now but within the last six months or so, things seem to be moving a bit faster. A few months back, it was learned that the film had become a priority for New Line and today’s news is further proof of that.

The studio has chosen first-time director Dan Trachtenberg to take on the project. While Trachtenberg has yet to helm a feature length film, his short “No Escape,” based on the video game “Portal,” is a favorite among fans.

For those not familiar with the story, Y: The Last Man, written by Brian K. Vaughan, tells of Yorick Brown, a young magician who learns that he and his monkey, Ampersand, may be the last remaining males on Earth after a plague kills off everyone with a Y chromosome. You can check out Trachtenberg’s short film below. What do you think of this addition to the project? Think he can candle it?
