David Fincher Gives An Update On THE GOON

Here is an update from David Fincher on his film adaptation of the comic book The Goon! 

Below is the promo trailer for the CGI animated film which was shown at Comic-Con this last year! Paul Giamatti and Clancy Brown did the voice work in the trailer. Unfortunately, the production still hasn’t found funding. 

Here’s what Fincher had to say.

Animation that isn’t singing furry animals is hard. Especially something as outré as Eric Powell. And it’s his script! (laughs) It’s main-lined Eric Powell. We kind of went out with it at the end of the year and I don’t know that a lot of people were paying attention, but hopefully someone will step in and want to (pick it up)

I gotta hope there are more avenues for animation than… I certainly wouldn’t call The Goon “adult animation.” I think that ends up starting to sound like Fritz The Cat and that’s not what it is. It’s more like “teen animation.” And it’s funny! 

Hopefully this will be the year that people go, “Wait a minute! We don’t all have to be trying to imitate Pixar!

It is a mystery to me why this film has yet to find funding! The story follows the adventures of the Goon, a muscle-bound brawler who claims to be the primary enforcer for the feared mobster Labrazio. The Goon (and his sidekick Franky) often get tied up in other machinations, often in relation to the evil zombie gangs under the command of the Nameless Zombie Priest.
Here is the teaser trailer:
