The Single Man March

Years and years and years I've been following the development of Bryan Vaughn's comic series Y: The Last Man from page to possible small or big screen iteration - remember when the dude who made that Shia LaBeouf movie almost made this into a Shia LaBeouf movie? Heady days, heady days. The last thing we'd heard was over a year ago - that FX wanted to turn it into a series. 

Well it took some time but they've picked a show-runner and guessing by the company he keeps he must be a fine fellow - Michael Green, who is the co-show-runner on American Gods alongside our beloved Bryan Fuller, is taking over. Green's previously worked on Smallville and Heroes amongst many other shows - he's also the screenwriter of the upcoming Blade Runner, Alien; Covenant, and Wolverine sequels, so dude is really raking it in right about now.

Y: The Last Man tells the story of Yorick Brown, slacker turned last man on Earth - "last man" as in "all of the males of the species drop dead and he's stuck on Earth with just the women." Reading the book I was always glad for him that he was a heterosexual, poor Yorick, because as much as I love my lady-friends I don't know how I'd go on without any other dudes around. Anyway once again here is where I say Logan Lerman should totally play Yorick - it's taken so long to get this thing made he's finally gotten to be the right age, even!
