It's been a year or two now since we last heard anything about New Line's upcoming adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan's Vertigo comic book series Y: The Last Man. It was definitely starting to look like the project would be forever trapped in development hell, but this week the movie is once again showing signs of life as New Line has hired a new pair of screenwriters to take another crack at a script. According to THR, they have hired Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia (Human Target, Jericho) to take the movie "back to the drawing board." The screenwriters are not necessarily recognizable or even respected names, but at the very least, I am glad to see the movie hasn't been abandoned just yet and that we may eventually get a new director and star to replace D.J. Caruso and Shia Labeouf. For those unfamiliar with the comic, Y: The Last Man »
