Comics to Movies - Whiteout and Y: The Last Man Updates

There's two upcoming comic books to movie adaptations that I'm going to be following closely, not only because they seem to be moving in the right directions, but also because the original source material for each is fantastic and the creators are visionaries themselves. The first is Whiteout, from Greg Rucka, and the second is Y: The Last Man, from Brian K. Vaughan. Both have been mentioned before in the news (click either of those links), but some updates have arrived on each this weekend. In one update, screenwriter David Goyer talks about the current state and outlook on Y: The Last Man, and in the other, the screenwriter of Whiteout talks about its status.

In an interview over at SuperHeroHype, David Goyer talks about the status of the film and that they're still only as far as pushing the screenplay to studios.

"We're still pushing on that, we want to make it. The screenplay has a very unique voice that is obviously similar to the comic book, and I love that voice, but it's been harder to get traction in Hollywood with it. I really want to make the movie and make it with the voice that Brian has imbued his comic books with. I don't want to bastardize it in anyway."

In addition, Goyer mentions that they still don't have a director because they're really looking for the perfect one.

"We need to find a director that loves the comic book. Once we do, it's fine. If you love the comic book, you get it immediately. I think that will translate to a mainstream audience, but we just need to find a director that already loves the comic book, so that's what we're trying to do."

In an interview over at Rotten Tomatoes, screenwriter Christine Roum talks about the progress of the film and how the feel of it will be.

"It's a bigger feeling movie. It has a landscape that's really big. It's very ambitious as a film and very ambitious from a storytelling point of view because you're dealing with character. It's all about these characters in a very hyped up environment, the south pole."

In addition, she ensures that director Dominic Sena isn't butchering the film and is staying close to the source.

"Dominic Sena really loved this book forever, so he's staying very true as much as possible to the tone of it," she said.
