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


Posted by on

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.

Gigi Gets Wasted

5 Ways to Get Ready for Tonight’s Boozy Gigi Does It

Catch Gigi Does It Mondays at 10:30P ET/PT on IFC.

Posted by on

On tonight’s Gigi Does It, everyone’s favorite yenta gets her drink on at a wine tasting. As the episode shows us, it is possible to have a nice drink with friends without too many tears. Here are five ways to get ready for tonight’s wine-soaked Gigi Does It before it airs at 10:30P ET/PT on IFC.

1.  Learn the proper wine tasting etiquette.

There’s nothing more fun than tasting some fine wine with friends. Just be sure to learn the spitting versus swallowing etiquette.

2. Keep the conversation light.

When chatting with friends over a nice relaxing glass of wine, it’s important to keep things light. Unless you’re Ricky and the very sight of alcohol brings up years of repressed childhood trauma.

3. Support your wasted pals.

Tonight on Gigi Does It, Gigi steps in for her drunken pal Tretchy during an important speech. Gigi truly is a Dionne Warwick song come to life.

3. Hire a makeup crew for all your party selfie needs.

Not everyone can wake up and walk out the door looking their best. So be like Gigi Does It star David Krumholtz and assemble a team of professional makeup artists to give you the attention to bald cap blending and neck fold realism that you deserve.

4. Get some “hot takes” for cocktail hour.

In today’s post-Twitter world, one doesn’t have time to hear “hot take” on the latest trends beyond 140 characters. As such, it’s important to condense your incredulous rants on everything from Trump on SNL to healthy eating into bite-sized, Andy Rooney-esque tidbits. Watch the video above to hear Gigi’s take on Trump’s “cotton candy hair” and get some talking points for your next cocktail party.

5. Crack open Gigi’s book with a nice Chardonnay.

Like most seniors, Gigi knows how little appreciation grandparents receive from their grandkids. Which is why the saucy old broad penned a children’s book reminding today’s youth to call their grandmother. Pop open a bottle of your favorite tasty beverage and give it a read.
