Y: The Last Man Heading to FX as a Live-Action TV Series. After years of development into making Y: The Last Man as a film, the dystopian comic book series will move from film to TV as FX has picked up the rights to the franchise and is looking to develop a TV adaptation.
It has been a long road for Y: The Last Man to be made into a film, but now it looks like the comic book adaptation will be getting life on the small screen according to The Hollywood Reporter. Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson will be producing the potential series for FX with comic book scribe Brian K. Vaughan involved with writing the producing. FX has been behind the success of television shows such as Sons of Anarchy, American Horror Story, and The Strain so there is a possibility that Y: The Last Man may become the next big hit for the network.
Published by Vertigo in 2002, Y: The Last Man follows escape artist Yorick Brown, the last survival man on Earth after the apparent simultaneous death of every male mammal except for his monkey Ampersand. The series has 60 issues in total with the series getting five Eisner Awards.
D.J. Caruso, David Goyer, and Louis Letterier were previously attached for the film adaptation of the comic book series. It was rumored that either Shia LaBeouf or Zachary Levi was attached to star in the series along with Alicia Keys. After years in development, the rights reverted back to Brian and co-creator Pia Guerra.
