D.J. Caruso On Why He Walked Away From Y: The Last Man!
The director reveals that he no longer has any sort of involvement with the movie adaptation because Warner Bros wanted to cram the story into just a single movie...
On Why He Decided To Walk Away From Y: The Last Man:
"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 you are familiar with the comic book you know it's just mind-boggling. If you look at what my buddy Frank Darabont did with The Walking Dead you think, I don't know is that the best thing for it? Because there is just so much great stuff, so no I'm not involved with that anymore."
On Whether He's Be Tempted To Return To The Project:
"It's one of those things where if someone came back to me and said, okay we believe in your vision of the movie, then I would definitely jump back in but I don't anticipate that happening. It's a tough screenplay to lick and we had some very good writers. But it was like you had to convince the studio that this movie could stand alone on its own. But at the same time there would be unresolved issues ultimately with what happens to Yorick and how it all ties together. It's really tough. 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."
Y: The Last Man tells the story of the last living man after the mysterious death of the world's male mammal population and was created by Brian K. Vaughn.
