Exclusive: Seann William Scott and Liev Schrieber get bloody in Goon character posters!

4 years agoby:

Let's be honest - it's been a while since we've had a decent hockey movie. MIRACLE was okay (I'm a sucker for Kurt Russell in a pair of plaid slacks) but you'd probably have to go back to SLAP SHOT for the last really good (and maybe only really good?) hockey movie. Well that's where GOON comes in. Our Montreal brother Jay Baruchel recognized this void as well and co-wrote his own hockey movie and the movie will have its premiere this week at the Toronto Film Festival! We're excited to premiere two new character posters for the film featuring stars Liev Schrieber and Seann William Scott.

In the film, Scott stars as a bruiser who's reluctant to brawl until a hockey coach sees him and recruits him for his team (never mind he doesn't even know how to skate). His one job? To stop legendary enforcer Ross "The Boss" Rhea (Schrieber).

Baruchel co-wrote the script with Evan Goldberg (PINEAPPLE EXPRESS, SUPERBAD) and recruited an impressive cast that also includes Alison Pill, Nicholas Campbell, Kim Coates and Eugene Levy.

Miracle was a great movie. I don't know you can say it isn't. Other greats include Mystery Alaska, Mighty Ducks, and Youngblood. Slap Shot of course is the greatest

Hit Somebody

Anyone else find it highly suspicious that this this flick not only came about around the same time Smith started talking about Hit Somebody, but then poached his star Sean William Scott? Could be mere coincidental that there just happened to be two unprecedented goon flicks in the works, but it's doubtful. Snooze you loose I guess. Once you put that idea into the either, it's up for the taking.

FUCK YES

one of my most anticipated of the year! This bitch is finally coming out hopefully, it's taken long enough!

Hopefully it's released in Canada by the end of the year at least. I've read some of the script and was around for some of the filming and the parts I read/saw were freakin hilarious!!

I'm hip. I especially love the idea of Liev Schreiber as an enforcer...dude's an imposing SOB yet few directors take advantage. Though this does put a crimp in Kevin Smith's 'Hit Somebody' which I feel might be more relevant right now as hockey deals with the deaths of Wade Belak and other enforcers.

Hit Somebody may be more relevant? Do you even know what Hit Somebody is about? It has nothing to do with injuries or death or anything. It's about a player who wanted to be a goal scorer but was born an enforcer and all he wanted to do was score a goal and win one for his team.

It is relevant: the reality of wanting to be a good player and ending up a goon is really hard to deal with for some and may explain the depressions they were having. Wade Belak was a first round choice.
