More than five years after New Line Cinema acquired the film rights to Y: The Last Man, the acclaimed comic by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra, we seem little closer to seeing Yorick Brown and Ampersand on the big screen than we were in 2007. But likely for fans of the Eisner Award-winning series, Christian Cardona has taken an adaptation into his own hands with a stellar short film called Y: The Last Man Rising that’s debuted at IGN.com.
Watch the short, which stars Travis Quentin Young as Yorick, Kent King as Agent 355 and Rebecca Marshall as Hero Brown, below.
Based on one of the most critically acclaimed comics of all time. A mysterious plague has wiped out all men on the planet, and women are left to pick up the pieces of society. The only surviving man is Yorick, an amateur escape artist who is the key to the continual survival of the human race. Special Agent 355 is tasked to protect his life at all costs. Luckily, she’s really good at her job…
IGN and Drake 1129 Productions are proud to present this new short film, made by super fans of the comic. It covers the initial plague that kills any mammal with a Y chromosome (except Yorick and his trusty monkey companion, Ampersand) and an awesome fight between Agent 355 and a fanatical group of Amazons.
