FX is reportedly adapting the comic book series Y: The Last Man for television!
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the network is currently searching for a writer to work with series creator Brian K. Vaughan.
You may recall that long-teased movie adaptation (eight years long to be exact) was finally canned in 2014 when the rights reverted back to Vaughan.
A situation which may be for the best since the superbly written comic will definitely fare better in a small screen, episodic format.
Y: The Last Man follows Yorick, the last man on earth and his pet monkey Ampersand after a mysterious disease kills every other human and animal with a Y-chromosome.
Y: THE LAST MAN, winner of three Eisner Awards and one of the most critically acclaimed, best-selling comic books series of the last decade, is that rare example of a page-turner that is at once humorous, socially relevant and endlessly surprising.
Written by Brian K. Vaughan (LOST, PRIDE OF BAGHDAD, EX MACHINA) and with art by Pia Guerra, this is the saga of Yorick Brown—the only human survivor of a planet-wide plague that instantly kills every mammal possessing a Y chromosome. Accompanied by a mysterious government agent, a brilliant young geneticist and his pet monkey, Ampersand, Yorick travels the world in search of his lost love and the answer to why he’s the last man on earth.
