In an interview with Crave Online, producer David S. Goyer spilled the beans that Y: The Last Man is actually getting closer to becoming a real movie:

"I am. We've got a script that's as close as it's ever been," he said. "That could go into production next year.... The first movie is meant to function as a standalone," he said, "but hopefully continue. Hopefully there will be others."

Created at Vertigo Comics, the series was penned by the great Brian K. Vaughan. The book follows the travels of the last man on Earth. But he's not alone, there are plenty of women left on Earth, just no men. Still not sure how this series can translate into a standalone film, or perhaps that's just because we'd rather see it as an HBO series. Oh well, at least this is progress!

Haha who are we kidding it's gonna be a male power fantasy with mabye some titillating lesbian sex which is gonna jump through hoops to avoid any notion that it is critical of current gender relations. The comic already had the amazons as straw feminists galore, wouldn't be surprised to see that played up, because feminism is such a bummer after all.

Also, they are going to make Yorick much more macho (at the expense of the female characters, especially Agent 355) so the average male movie-goer won't label him "so gay".

I'd bet serious money on this.
