Your Favorite Comic Book May Not Be Desecrated After All

Anyway, my knowledge of Brian K. Vaughn's apparently perfect comic book series is limited to this, which is all I'm capable of adding to the conversation: Shia LaBeouf is attached to play Yorick Brown, while LaBeouf's Disturbia director, D.J. Caruso, is attached to direct.

Well, now I don't even have that to fall back on, though it's probably much to the delight of many who adore the series. Despite the idea of a Y: Last Man trilogy, Shia LaBeouf apparently isn't interested in the part anymore because the character too closely resembles Sam from Transformers. In an interview with Wizard Magazine, LaBeouf said this:

You take Sam and you put a monkey on his shoulder," said LaBeouf . "I don't know if it's that big a differential. It seems like he's the ordinary guy in an extraordinary situation again." Much like the character of Sam in the Transformers films. He added, "I'm not willing to make that movie currently, and may be too old to play the role by the time it does come around.

Well, there you go: Good news, bad news. The production of the movie has apparently stalled, but hey! At least it probably won't star LaBeouf.

So, is Joseph Gordon-Levitt too old to play the part? Or do we have to settle for Anton Yelchin, who is a pretty great actor but not all that magnetic. And more importantly, how does LaBeouf plan to branch out now? If he's not going to do the ordinary guy in extraordinary situations, what the hell has he got left?

Oh yeah. Wall Street 2. Pbbbbbbbt.

Too bad Corin Nemic is not young enough anymore. Whenever I see the above photo, I always envision Parker Lewis with a monkey.
