Will You Help Fund David Fincher’s Animated ‘Goon’ Adaptation?

The Goon

It’s been four long years since we first talked about comic creator Eric Powell and his series “The Goon,” which had just begun to spurn talk of a film adaptation. Back then it was Powell on stage at Comic-Con, talking and creating with comics Brian Posehn, Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant. Back then, there was nothing but a proof-of-concept clip that ravaged the eager crowds of the Con. Since then, Tim Miller of Blur Studios and Dark Horse Studios, alongside his co-director Jeff Fowler, have stuck with the idea. They’ve even roped in David Fincher as a producer. But despite the names attached and the excitement from that first clip, The Goon has never quite gotten off the ground. Presumed dead, it’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from team Goon.

Until now.

Now they need some help, and they’re looking to those same giddy fans to foot the bill.

In a video released today, Fincher, Fowler and Miller have launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise $400,000 for a story reel for the film. And as any Kickstarter campaign has, there are some perks. If you’ve got $10,ooo laying around, you could have lunch with Eric Powell, David Fincher and the rest of the creative team. Not bad. For more, check out this fine, tongue-in-cheek video from the producers, including David Fincher set to “Call Me Maybe,” which is now a real thing.
