The last we heard about 'Y: The Last Man' was that the rights were going to revert to co-creators Brian K. Vaughn and Pia Guerra if shooting didn't commence shortly. And today we've learned that Dan Trachtenberg, the last director associated with the project, has signed on to direct 'Valencia' for J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot and Paramount Insurge. Which means that it's likely that New Line's take on 'Y' is dead.
We've seen many a short film and YouTube clip lead to successful careers, but we've yet to see a fan film turn into a real career. That is, until today. Dan Trachtenberg has been hired to helm New Line's adaptation of 'Y: The Last Man.'
