Latino Review is reporting that a new director has expressed interest in the adventures of Yorick Brown and his pet monkey, Ampersand: Louis Letterier, the director of The Incredible Hulk and the opening-oh-so-very-soon Clash of the Titans.
With the preamble and facts out of the way, I suppose it's time for my hopefully valuable, thoughtful and honest opinion. I like Letterier. I definitely like him more than DJ Caruso, although he's not a filmmaker who sets my world on fire (although I seem to be in the minority who think that Clash of the Titans does not look like a great big bag of awful). He's a solid action director and he hasn't developed any quick-cutting shaky-cam bad habits yet, so he's got that going for him. I haven't read the entirety of Y: The Last Man (I'm slowly making my way through the trades and really enjoying it), but this is not a series with a great deal of action. Could Letterier tell a story about human beings who don't turn into green beasts or Damn the Gods? Question of the moment!
Letterier has also been putting his name out there as a potential director of Marvel's The Avengers, so if his getting that gig becomes a real possibility, will that take him off Y: The Last Man? Who knows. Maybe. Sure. I really don't see him getting the Avengers job, anyway. So, let's pretend he is doing Y: The Last Man. Any dream casting? Should it be a trilogy? Should they revive Vaughn's draft of the screenplay?
Questions, always questions ...
