Man of Steel screenwriter has been talking about his long-gestating adaptation of the post-apocalyptic comic series Y: The Last Man. Goyer is on board to produce the movie, and while it has been in the works for nearly a decade he's revealed that filming could now begin as early as next year. In an interview with Crave, he revealed:
We’ve got a script that’s as close as it’s ever been, so knock on wood. That could go into production next year… The first movie is meant to function as a standalone, but hopefully continue. Hopefully there will be others.
Y: The Last Man is the brilliant comic book series by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra, which follows the adventures of amateur escape artist Yorrick Brown and his Capuchin monkey, the only male survivors of a plague that simultaneously kills every mammal on earth who possesses a Y chromosome. The comic tells a series of interlinked stories that are massive in scope, so if the movie manages to find an audience, there's enough source material there for a potentially epic franchise.
With production on Y: The Last Man hopefully set to kick off soon, stick close and we'll bring you all the post-apocalyptic updates as and when we get them.
