A television adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan’s seminal dystopian comic Y: The Last Man has been kicking around in development at FX for a few months now, and it sounds like good news could be coming soon.
While speaking with IGN, FX CEO John Landgraf offered up a small but critical update on the project. First up, yes, it’s still in active development —and an update should be hitting in the near future to let us know the creative team that will be joining Vaughan to bring it to life. A film version has already died in development hell almost a decade ago, and there’s no denying the comic is a tricky project to adapt.
Check out his comments below:
“There’s a kind of a scrum of interest in that. We’ve had a number of producers and writers who really want to participate in that. Ultimately, it’s Brian’s call who he wants to work with and I think that’ll come out soon.”
It’s great to hear there’s a good bit of interest in the project, and it’s even more encouraging to see the network taking its time in deciding who will be at the helm. Vaughan will be producing the series, and it seems he has a good bit of say on who joins him in the writers’ room. Here’s hoping they can strike the right team and finally bring Yorick to the screen.
