Shia LaBeouf Wants To Play The Lead in Y: The Last Man?
I've mentioned Y: The Last Man quite a bit before in the news, given it really struck me as a comic book adaptation that would stand out as a movie. There's a bit of buzz going around, which originates from a scooper at JoBlo.com, that the young star Shia LaBeouf "expressed substantial interest in playing the lead role."
Why is this good news? It means that the film may be getting some good nudges in the right direction from the right people in the "biz". As JoBlo mentioned and was expressed by the writer, Brian K. Vaughan previously, the film has been in development hell. LaBeouf is really making one hell of an impact in Hollywood recently anyway, starring as the lead in Disturbia, which has been #1 for two weeks, and is the lead in the upcoming Transformers which needs no introduction, and was also confirmed as the lead for Indiana Jones IV. I'd be fine with him taking on the lead in Y: The Last Man.
And as a closer, this Y: The Last Man photo that I found over at Solace in Cinema just kicks ass - enjoy!
