New Line announced that it has hired Dan Tractenberg to direct the movie version of the Y: The Last Man comic. He replaces Disturbia director D.J. Caruso in the role.
Tractenberg was hired for the work he did on the Portal: No Escape fan film which has north of 11 million views on YouTube. Y: The Last Man focuses on Yorick and his pet monkey Ampersand, the only male survivors of a worldwide plague, with comic author Brian K. Vaughan said to be handling the film conversion.
