It's a case of good news, bad news for the Y: The Last Man movie. On the plus side, a new script for the movie is currently being co-written by creator Brian K. Vaughan. On the minus, Shia's still involved.

The script is not ready to be shot. DJ is making a different movie right now. He's making "Jack and the Beanstalk". There's just other things going on with DJ and I wouldn't want to make the movie with anybody else because he loves it like I do. But I don't think Vaughn is trying to give it to anybody else. I think that it is something that's very realistic, it's just not in the pipe for the next year.
There's only one thing for it: We have to do something to make Shia go off the idea again.
