Even if their upcoming Preacher series hadn’t worked out, producers Evan Goldberg and James Weaver apparently had a backup plan in place.
Goldberg and Weaver recently chatted with Collider about their take on Preacher, and along the way noted that Y, The Last Man was also on their short list of dream projects, if the dark supernatural comic fell through.
The duo revealed they had actually read the script for the mostly dead Y: The Last Man flick that’s been floating around development hell (“it’s a very good feature script,” Weaver admitted) but would’ve loved to turn the project into a television series. Goldberg added: “Y: The Last Man would be such a good show.”
Fans have been clamoring for a Y: The Last Man series for years — and with Goldberg and Weaver busy with Preacher — here’s hoping someone else hits up comic creator Brian K. Vaughan for the rights once they revert back to him soon.
The comic is well suited for a cable television run, and you’d think the Eisner Award-winning series would attract a fair bit of cachet at the right network.
Which would you prefer on the small screen, Preacher or Y: The Last Man?
