Bei "Y: The Last Man" handelt es sich um die Verfilmung der "Y: The Last Man" Comic-Reihe von Brian K. Vaughan und Pia Guerra...

Willkommen in der entmannten Welt: Eine Seuche unbekannter Art vernichtet jedes Spermium, jeden Fötus und jedes lebende Säugetier mit einem Y-Chromosom - ausgenommen einen einzigen jungen Mann und sein ebenfalls männliches Haustier, ein Kapuzineräffchen. 48% der Erdbevölkerung werden ausgelöscht - 2,9 Milliarden Männer...

In Begleitung der geheimnisvollen Agentin "355" begibt er sich auf eine gefährliche Odyssee quer durch ein Amerika, in dem Ex-Models mit Müllwagen Leichen einsammeln, die Ehefrauen verstorbener Politiker die Ämter ihrer Männer einfordern und Amazonen Frauen terrorisieren, die ihr "Glück" nicht erkennen wollen... Und Yorick stellt sich immer die gleiche Frage: Warum ist ausgerechnet er der letzte Überlebende?

"Y: The Last Man" kommt nicht vor 2014 in die Kinos, wenn überhaupt... Evtl. kommt auch eine TV-Serie !?!

Aktuelles



[15.03.2012] Wie
THR meldet, gibt es einen neuen Anlauf in Sachen "Y: The Last Man"-Verfilmung...
[...] Writing duo Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia are in final negotiations to write New Line Cinema's adaptation of the acclaimed Vertigo comic book. J.C. Spink, Chris Bender and David Goyer are producing. Mason Novick and Jake Weiner are executive producing.
The comic, created by Vaughan and Pia Guerra, centers on Yorick, an escape artist who is the last survivor of a mysterious plague that has killed every male mammal in the world. With his pet monkey, he sets out to find what might have wiped out the world's male chromosomes.
The project has been long in development at New Line and came close to taking off in an incarnation with a script by Carl Ellsworth and D.J. Caruso attached as director.
Now Federman and Scaia will go back to the drawing board. [...]


[23.11.2010] MovieWeb sprach mit dem Regisseur D.J. Caruso über die geplante "Y: The Last Man"-Verfilmung, die scheinbar für das Studio gestorben ist...
[...] "I love, love, love that project. I think the biggest problem for me was I saw it as a trilogy. I didn't think that you could take Yorick's story and put it in to a two-hour movie and do it justice. That was sort of the difference. I think that New Line, working with Warner Bros. in their new relationship, just felt reluctant thinking that we can't leave this thing open."
"It's one of those things where if someone came back to me and said, okay we believe in your vision of the movie, then I would definitely jump back in but I don't anticipate that happening. It's a tough screenplay to lick and we had some very good writers. But it was like you had to convince the studio that this movie could stand alone on its own. But at the same time there would be unresolved issues ultimately with what happens to Yorick and how it all ties together. It's really tough. If someone came back to me today and said they would love for me to jump in and do this the way I wanted to do it, I would. But I just feel like it's too much for one screenplay. I'm not involved with that now." [...]


[11.11.2010] MTV sprach mit dem Regisseur Louis Leterrier über den "Y: The Last Man"-Kinofilm...
[...] "I'm surprised that it hasn't gotten made yet," Leterrier told MTV News. "The first time I read it, I was in France and doing my little movies, and I didn't think I would ever have access to these kinds of movies. Midway through 'Clash of the Titans,' I was like, 'What's going on with 'Y The Last Man'?' I called one of the producers and asked what was going on, and he said it was available. I said, 'Let's go!'"
"DJ Caruso was supposed to do it with Shia Labeouf, and that sort of went on and was over, so I went in and said, 'Please, please let me have it!'" he explained.
As for where it stands now, Leterrier said the adaptation remains in murky waters, with no agreement over how best to translate the series to the screen, and no certainty whether it's meant for the big screen as one movie or several, or even as a television series.
"It's kind of stuck somewhere now," said the filmmaker. "I still want to do it. I'm passionate about it. But it's stuck. People don't know what to do with it. I'd love to do it, but I need people to finance it, and the people financing it don't know if it's a TV show a movie, or what it should be."
And though the studio doesn't seem quite certain how to handle "Y: the Last Man," the French filmmaker says he's already thought about it quite a bit - and has some ideas about how he thinks it should be presented.
"It could play as a movie, but it would be very interesting as a TV show," he said. "[It wouldn't work as] one large film, no. I'd love to do it as a TV show or a three-part series."
"I like the idea of a TV show," he continued. "You take time to get to know your characters. You can introduce a lot of characters. You don't need your three-action set pieces that you usually need for movies. Frankly, with HBO and Showtime and cable shows, the DVD box sets and all, you can have a product that doesn't make you feel like as soon as it's projected, it's thrown away. It's really a piece of art."
So, while "Y; The Last Man" is likely no closer to production than it was several months ago, that doesn't mean it's far from filmmakers' minds. What shape it will take when it's eventually adapted - if at all - has yet to be determined, though.


[26.03.2010] Wie Latino Review meldet, hat Louis Leterrier Interesse an einer "Y"-Verfilmung angemeldet... ;-)

[10.06.2009] CS! meldet...
Almost two years ago, it was announced the D.J. Caruso would direct and Carl Ellsworth would write an adaptation of Brian K. Vaughn and Pia Guerra's Y: The Last Man.
Since then, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen star Shia LaBeouf's name has come up numerous times as being in talks to play the lead role of Yorick Brown, the lone survivor of a plague that wipes out all males on the planet. The project would have reunited him with Caruso, who directed LaBeouf in Eagle Eye and Disturbia.
But now, LaBeouf tells Wizard magazine that Yorick is too similar to his "Transformers" role of Sam Witwicky.
"You take Sam and you put a monkey on his shoulder," said LaBeouf of Yorick's sidekick Ampersand. "I don't know if it's that big a differential. It seems like he's the ordinary guy in an extraordinary situation again.
He added, "I'm not willing to make that movie currently, and may be too old to play the role by the time it does come around."


[23.09.2008] SciFi.com zitiert den Regisseur D.J. Caruso...
[...] The key element will be to increase the urgency of the story, the first of three envisioned movies, by separating Yorick, the last male survivor of a worldwide plague, and his capuchin monkey companion, Ampersand.
"I just think what happens is that if you separate Yorick and Ampersand, then there's the potential that Yorick could get sicker and sicker as time progresses," Caruso said in an interview.
The idea that Ampersand is the key to Yorick's survival is one story element that differentiates the proposed film from the comics, which Vaughan created with Pia Guerra.
Y the Last Man centers on Yorick, a twentysomething slacker and amateur escape artist who finds himself the last surviving man after a plague kills every creature with a Y chromosome. He and Ampersand embark on a journey to find his fiancee, Beth, in Australia, accompanied by 355, an agent of a secret government agency, and Dr. Mann, a cloning scientist who may hold the key to the plague's cure. [...]
Is Y the Last Man going to be your next film?<
Caruso:
Yeah. We turned in the script to Warner Brothers last week, and we're trying to strategize and figure out [how to do it]. ... It's kind of new to New Line and Warner Brothers, because they have a new relationship now, and, yeah, we're hoping that's the next movie. And, hopefully, they'll ... give us the go-ahead to start prepping that movie. And I'd love to prep that late in the fall if I can and roll into shooting that ... after the winter.
So Warner's pretty hot on moving forward.
Caruso:
I think they are. We had some discussions, and I know that they would really, really like to have the movie in late 2010 if that's possible.
And Shia LaBeouf, who starred in your films Disturbia and Eagle Eye, again, is your first choice to play Yorick?
Caruso:
He's my first choice.
And that won't be complicated by either his schedule on Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen or his hand injury from a recent auto accident?
Caruso:
No, because Transformers 2, they're more than halfway done now, and he's out there shooting and doing his thing. I think that's why, too, if I have enough time to prep it, he'll have some time off and can come into it fresh.
What do you think Shia would bring to that role?
Caruso:
Well, I think Yorick is a fantastic role for Shia. One, because Yorick has great sort of self-deprecating humor. ... One thing Shia really brings to him is that ... realistic acting style and being put in some crazy, ... super-realistic situations. Shia always keeps them real and keeps it grounded. He's endearing. I'm hoping that the 355 relationship, ... I always thought it would be really cool to have that be sort of a [Robert] De Niro-[Charles] Grodin ... banter type relationship, like they had in Midnight Run. I think that Shia would be a great sort of receiver and giver on both sides of that. I think he'd really bring a lot to it.
Have you given thought to casting of other characters?
Caruso:
I haven't given deep thought, because we just [finished the script]. I mean, it was so cool we finally plotted out and licked the first screenplay. I think it's one of three if, God willing, the things are successful. And so I haven't really given it much thought. But, ... it's [going to have 355]. We've got 711. We've got Dr. Mann. We've got Hero. ... We've got a lot of interesting casting choices. You know, as Shia said, this would be a really fun movie to be a guy in [laughs].
Alicia Keys is a name that comes up for 355.
Caruso:
Yeah, you know, that ... came up a lot in the last couple of weeks, and it's very interesting. I mean, I have not met her, but I mean, she might be an interesting 355. I thought she did a cool job in the Joe Carnahan movie [Smokin' Aces].
The graphic novel is a sprawling story, and obviously you'd have to pare it down for the first film of three. Do you have an endpoint, and how you would streamline that story?
Caruso:
I don't want to give away too much of the end, but I think basically, you know, Yorick and 355 will basically walk away and go off into the sunset, knowing that they're going to have to keep going on the run, and you might sort of look up in the sky and realize that maybe Yorick is at that point, and he might not be the last man or he might be the last man, and that ... the journey and the continuing on the run is going to have to go from there. ...
Primarily in the first movie, I mean, it's really important to stay focused on Yorick. And we do deal with Alter, ... the Israeli army and then the Chinese faction that's coming in as well. But, you know, to get us going, to get us grounded, it's really about Yorick. You know, the anchor of this particular film would be the Yorick-355 relationship.
Have you given thoughts for the second and third films?
Caruso:
If we get through this first one and then start thinking about the second ... I haven't given it much thought. It's just been actually very difficult to get the first one into a screenplay, because there's so much great stuff to choose from.
Talk about Brian K. Vaughan's involvement.
Caruso:
He's been great. He's been reading all the drafts and sort of going with us. And the one thing which Brian did, which was really great, was to say, "Look, guys, feel free to change this or to do that. Don't be so locked in by everything I did, because I understand that the movie is different than what we have, and ... don't let the fanboys dictate what you do if you change something." And so we've been very good, but we've actually been very close and very respectful and actually just ramped up something a little bit different, which Brian thought was actually a great tweak. And so he's been involved and been very, very helpful.

In an interview with the USA Today about the last issue of Pia Guerra and Brian K. Vaughan's "Y: The Last Man," the director of the comic's upcoming adaptation, D.J. Caruso (Disturbia, upcoming Eagle Eye), says it might become a trilogy of films:
Caruso says he has had "preliminary discussions" with Shia LaBeouf to play Yorick.
"For me, thematically, the most important thing and the reason I want to do this is - I don't want to say it's the end of the innocence, but it's actually a man-child who has to become a real man now," Caruso says. "I think it's a really simple, beautiful theme, but at the same time, the movie's really pop-culture entertainment."
While the original plan was to squeeze the entire series into one movie, Caruso says the film will cover the first 14 issues of the comics. He adds that this opens the door for a trilogy. [...]

A few years ago, Superhero Hype! had a chance to talk to writer/director/producer David Goyer about the movie he was producing based on Brian K. Vaughn's post-apocalyptic comic book Y: The Last Man. In the time since then, he has directed a new suspense thriller called The Invisible and during that same time, Vaughn himself has taken a crack at the script, so Goyer updated Superhero Hype! on the status of that project: "I just was exchanging Emails with Brian Vaughn yesterday and saw his episode of 'Lost' last night. We're still pushing on that, we want to make it. The screenplay has a very unique voice that is obviously similar to the comic book, and I love that voice, but it's been harder to get traction in Hollywood with it. I really want to make the movie and make it with the voice that Brian has imbued his comic books with. I don't want to bastardize it in anyway."
We wondered whether Alfonso Cuarón's Children of Men might make it easier for Hollywood to understand Vaughn's vision, to which Goyer countered, "But 'Children of Men' didn't do well, and here's the bottom line: We need to find a director that loves the comic book. Once we do, it's fine. If you love the comic book, you get it immediately. I think that will translate to a mainstream audience, but we just need to find a director that already loves the comic book, so that's what we're trying to do."
Since the Vertigo comic book series will be done by then, we asked whether Vaughn would try to condense the entire series into a single movie. "No, the neat thing about his adaptation is that it's 70% the comic book, but he did a great job adapting it," Goyer replied. "He changed what needed to be changed. It still has that Brian K. Vaughn flavor, but it goes in a different direction, and the ending of the film in fact is different than the ending in the comic book will be." [...]
