“Y: The Last Man” in final negotiations for new screenwriters

To television fans, Brian K. Vaughan is likely best known as a writer on “Lost,” but for folks in the comic book know, Vaughan is revered as the writer of a number of critically acclaimed comic series, including “Runaways”, “Ex Machina” and more. Of all his creations though, the one that continues to stand out as his masterpiece is “Y: The Last Man.” Now, with New Line having approached two new writers, the film appears closer to reality than ever.

“Y: The Last Man” focuses on Yorick Brown, who along with his Capuchin monkey, are the last remaining males of any species on Earth. Over the comic’s 60-issue run, Vaughan and his co-creator/penciler Pia Guerra, explored a chaotic world where men have ceased to exist, and the clock is ticking on the survival of the human species. The film version of the series has been in development for years, but according to the Hollywood Reporter, it finally seems to be moving forward with Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia as writers.

Federman and Scaia recently signed on to pen the upcoming Zorro movie at Sony, but are mostly known for the television work. The two have written episodes of “Charlie’s Angels,” “Warehouse 13,” “Jericho” and “Human Target,” which was also based upon a Vertigo comic book series. Set to produce “Y: The Last Man” are J.C. Spink, Chris Bender and a man well-familiar with bringing comic book properties to screen, David Goyer.

If you’re interested in Vaughan’s comic book work, but maybe don’t want to commit to the 10 graphic novels that comprise the “Y: The Last Man” series, you should absolutely check out “Saga,” by Vaughan and artist Fiona Staples. Just released yesterday from Image, the series is a new ongoing, and if the first issue is any indication, will be the book we’re all raving about for years to come. You can even buy the book digitally from Comixology.

Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Rev Up

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
