FX is developing a live-action Y: The Last Man television series

Y: The Last Man Banner

A live-action film version of Y: The Last Man has been in the works for years, with filmmakers such as D.J. Caruso and Dan Trachtenberg previously attached to direct, but now the plan is to adapt Brian K. Vaughan's critically acclaimed comic book series for the small screen. THR has learned that FX will develop the television series with Vaughan and Color Force's Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson, and that they are currently looking for a writer to work on it with Vaughan.

The project is obviously still in the early stages of development though, and THR says it hasn't been determined yet who will direct the series. The Vertigo comic ran for sixty issues, and won the 2008 Eisner Award for Best Continuing Series. Y: The Last Man is "the gripping saga of Yorick Brown, an unemployed and unmotivated slacker who discovers that he is the only male left in the world after a plague of unknown origin instantly kills every mammal with a Y chromosome. Accompanied by his mischievous monkey and the mysterious Agent 355, York embarks on a transcontinental journey to find his girlfriend and discover why he is the last man on Earth."

Although I'm excited about a potential Y: The Last Man TV series, I'm not totally convinced that it will actually happen since there's been so many attempts at getting a film adaptation of the comic made. But I'm very happy that Vaughan is involved with the project, and hopefully it will go to series.
