“Disturbia” and “Eagle Eye” director DJ Caruso recently sat down and talked with ComingSoon.net, and among other things talked about the silver-screen adaptation of the hit comic series “Y: The Last Man” starring Shia LaBeouf. Caruso has been attached to the project, which New Line Cinema acquired the rights to, since 2007.

Caruso said “I think it’s one of those that the source material is fantastic stuff, it’s great, but it’s a tough one to lick into getting into a screenplay. I’ve tried to feel like it’s a trilogy of movies and I think everyone sort of agrees, but at the same time, just getting the first movie right and getting the right beats and knowing what to put in, it’s been really tough. You have great minds like David Goyer and you’ve got Carl Ellsworth and you’ve got Brian K. Vaughn, and I’m working with them to just kind of crack it and get it down. And we’re almost there. I know it’s a slow process, but I think eventually we’ll get it. We’re going to get it and we’ll get it right, but we had a pretty good breakthrough a couple weeks ago in the final act, and hopefully we’ll get there.”

“Y: The Last Man” is a Vertigo/DC comic title written by renowned comic creator Brian K Vaughan and artist Pia Guerra in 2003. It tells the story of a young man name Yorick Brown, an escape artist and his pet monkey Ampersand, the only males alive in the world after a mysterious plague kills off almost every living being with a Y chromosome. The story follows Yorick and the allies he gains over time as the mystery of the plague is uncovered, and various forces are after both Yorick and Ampersand for various reasons of their own.

No release date is set for “Y:The Last Man”.
