In some exciting news on the comics movie front, Deadline is reporting that Dan Trachtenberg will be directing the film adaptation of the Vertigo Comics series Y: The Last Man, written by Brian K. Vaughan (currently writing Saga) with art by Pia Guerra.
This was a surprise to us for a couple of reasons. First, all indications were that nothing was happening with Y: The Last Man on the film front. Second, Dan is actually a buddy of ours, as the co-host of the defunct Totally Rad Show, we spent many a years at parties, events and other things related to both having shows on Revision3. Considering that and the amount of time I’ve spent with Dan talking about his aspirations at directing, I can assure Y: The Last Man fans that he’s a great choice for this and will do the best job he can. I can’t wait to see what comes from this.
So let’s all congratulate Dan and keep our eyes on more news about the development of the Y: The Last Man movie!
