Helmer D.J. Caruso is no longer attached to direct the adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan’s Y: The Last Man.  Caruso wanted to adapt Vaughan’s 10-volume graphic novel epic as a trilogy, rather than trying to shoehorn the entire narrative into one movie.  


Caruso told The Latino Review that his determination to make Y as a trilogy was the sticking point that led to his leaving the project: “I love, love, love that project. I think the biggest problem for me was I saw it as a trilogy. I didn't think that you could take Yorick's story and put it in to a two-hour movie and do it justice. That was sort of the difference. I think that New Line, working with Warner Bros. in their new relationship, just felt reluctant thinking that we can't leave this thing open… If someone came back to me today and said they would love for me to jump in and do this the way I wanted to do it, I would. But I just feel like it's too much for one screenplay. I'm not involved with that now.”
