Disturbia director D.J. Caruso, who is reteaming with Shia LaBeouf (Indiana Jones 4) for the upcoming Eagle Eye, tells MTV he thinks the actor would work for his adaptation of Y: The Last Man:
“This is funny, but unbeknownst to me: Shia was already chasing this part prior to anything,” Caruso said. “I haven’t talked to him yet about it because he’s off shooting ‘Indiana Jones 4,’ but Shia is the right type and the right personality because you want to have the humor, but you also want to have the seriousness. So we’ll talk about it when we get there.”

The story centers on a mysterious plague killing nearly all the world’s male mammals overnight. A magician who’s the only survivor among this group and his male pet monkey set out to find what may have wiped out the male chromosomes.
Carl Ellsworth is writing the screenplay for New Line.
