Check This Out: An Impressive 23-Minute 'Y: The Last Man' Fan Film
An adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra's Y: The Last Man has been gestating for years now. Shia LaBeouf was once attached to the project and director D.J. Caruso was going to take a stab at the film, but it never came to fruition. Just recently TV producers-turned-writers Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia were hired to do a new script for the adaptation, but who knows how that's going to turn out. In the meantime, how about we take a look at an impressive attempt by filmmaker Christian Cardona who decided to make a 23-minute fan film based on the comic book just because he loves it so much. Watch it!
Here's Christian Cardona's fan film adaptation of Y: The Last Man via IGN:
As IGN describes the video they unleashed online: Adapting some of the earliest portions of Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra's hit Vertigo Comics series, Y: The Last Man. Rising stars Travis Quentin Young as Yorick Brown, Kent King as Agent 355, and Rebecca Marshall as Hero Brown as their paths begin to converge in the wake of a global catasrophe that wipes out all the men on the planet, save for Yorick and his pet monkey Ampersand. It's nothing short of impressive, especially for a fan film, and it just makes me want a big screen adaptation to get off the ground immediately. Make it happen, New Line! Pretty cool, right?
