Y: The Last Man

Director of Portal fan-film gets shot at long-awaited Y: the Last Man.

Is this really finally happening... with this guy?



Quote:
You'd expect that when one of the quintessential darlings of the comic book world to have a well-experienced big name director at the helm.

Surprise! Vaughn's opus bucks the trend by landing a relative unknown to the project. In fact, Dan Trachtenberg's biggest claim to fame is a 7-minute short fan-film based on the video game, Portal.

This news is equal parts fascinating and nerve-racking. On the one hand, Y is such a great property that there's a lot of built-in fear that a director who is a little green might mess it up. On the other hand, it's incredibly refreshing to see someone new get the chance to put a truly fresh spin on a well-known and established property.
I really don't like the sound of this. I just hope I'm wrong.

Re: Y: The Last Man


The premise seems pretty different but still just close enough that people will think any Y: The Last Man tv series is derivative. Shucks.

Man, I watched that and until the end I thought that was Y The Last Man. I was fuming.

I love the comic. In fact this just makes me want to go back and read it again.

I'm surprised HBO or someone hasn't picked it up with all the love Walking Dead gets.

Ex Machina would also work well as a TV series.

Re: Y: The Last Man

Director opens up about canceled Y: The Last Man movie



Quote:
However, the “big screen” and the “small screen” has changed drastically since Y came out and I think so much of the great TV in our current “golden age” has been directly or indirectly inspired by Y the Last Man. I started getting excited about bringing to the BIG screen what we’ve been getting in TV so readily now -- great characters, RELATIONSHIPS, world building and genre re-combination.

I was excited to make an ADVENTURE movie, with swashbuckle, that was fun and funny but had something to say. Which is something that is distinctly BKV. Having real, true, honest ,people stuff amidst the big, fun, action stuff. We were in many ways quite faithful to the comic, though some characters were combined and some events re-arranged and some brief moments of action we dug into to create bigger action/adventure sequences.

The script was essentially the first two trades. Taking inspiration from the original Star Wars (Episode 4) -- we wanted to tell a complete story...but not the whole story. Hoping that, in success, we could get tell the rest of our serialized adventure.
Such a shame.
