Well if it doesn't work on the big-screen, try the small...
After years of suffering through development hell, it seems comic creators Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra are taking their Y: THE LAST MAN to the FX network, so says THR. Producers Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson are overseeing the project, with writers set to be hired soon. A lot to sift through, as 60 issues worth of material are at the writer's disposal. The comic ran from 2002-2008.
Y: The Last Man tells the story of Yorick Brown, a young man who, along with his Capuchin monkey, Ampersand, somehow survives a catastrophic event that kills off every living creature with a Y chromosome. Left in a world of only women, Yorick teams with a government operative, 355, to try and uncover the truth about the plague and why he and he alone made it through alive.
If ordered in full, it will extend the relationship between Jacobson, Simpson and FX, who currently serve producorial roles on American Horror Story. Better yet, this could be the next huge comic-adaptation on TV to rival the wild popularity of The Walking Dead.
Think they can reach that level?
