We’ve been talking about this movie almost as long as this site has existed. The studios have screwed the pooch here and now it’s time for the fans to step in.
Go to Kickstarter to make this movie happen!
They only need 400k. I would not be surprised if they have two million dollars by the end of the weekend!
As originally planned, the film will be made by David Fincher and will be voiced by Paul Giamatti as “Franky” and Clancy Brown as “The Goon”.
GOON FANS of the world, grab your beat sticks and chug some hooch… it’s time to take on Hollywood!
That’s right, this is your chance to help bring everyone’s favorite zombie smasher to the big screen! For over 12 years, Eric Powell’s comic book “The Goon” has thrilled readers around the globe with its fantastic world of mobsters, zombies, killer robots, giant fish-men, and every outrageous thing in between. The time has come to bring this great comic to theaters!
You might be asking yourself, “I’ve seen footage of The Goon animated film online… why do they need money? Isn’t it already being made?”
The answer to that question is NO. The Goon Film has NEVER been in production. All the work you’ve seen (animation footage, trailers, artwork, etc.) has been produced independently and out-of-pocket by the creative team of David Fincher, Eric Powell, Blur Studio and Dark Horse Entertainment. We created “proof of concept” footage to show Hollywood the incredible potential of a Goon movie. It was very well received BUT because this movie isn’t a sequel or filled with dancing animals we’ll need more to bust open the gates and UNLEASH Goon and Franky on Hollywood. And by the freakishly barbarian strength of Aunt Kizzie, we’ll find a way to succeed!
This is where YOU come in.
The next step of our plan is to begin the filmmaking process by producing a feature length STORY REEL based on Eric Powell’s amazing script. (a story reel is a rough edit of storyboards combined with music and sound effects) This will give Hollywood a complete look at the Goon film’s potential… from his early life in the carnival to busting heads in the mysterious town with no name. We all know the Goon’s incredible story, the over-the-top action, hilarious comedy and genuine heart, but now it’s time for Hollywood to experience it as well.
Help us make a NEW KIND of animated film… one that’s LOUD, VIOLENT and OFFENSIVE TO YOUR GRANDMA.
