Get a glimpse of The Goon in full CG motion

Jul. 24, 2010by: Dave Davis

UPDATE: The extended footage from Comic Con has been added below, and looks like a total blast. And yep, that's Clancy Brown voicing Goon. The movie is currently still searching for a studio and/or financing, so let's hope it gets what it needs!

7.19.10 - It's been a long couple of years now since we first heard that Eric Powell's great monster/mobster comic THE GOON was becoming a feature film, courtesy of producer David Fincher (FIGHT CLUB, etc.) and FX company Blur Studios. So it's nice to see the project is still slowly coming to computer-rendered life.

MTV got a quick peek at some of the footage from the movie, which features Paul Giamatti voicing Goon's sidekick Frankie. More footage will be unveiled at the Friday panel at Comic Con -- where Giamatti and Fincher will be in attendance with Powell -- after which the full clip(s) will be online for those would can't make it to San Diego. For now, groove to the undead slapstick and mayhem below!

The Dark Horse comic revolves around a creature-punching mob enforcer and his mouthy buddy, and their misadventures in a bizarre monster-filled town.

Extra Tidbit: Clancy "The Kurgan" Brown voiced the Goon in previous CG test footage.

Knife to the Eye!

I have been waiting for any news about this movie for a LOOOONG time! It looks great already. Giamatti sounds a lot like how I pictured Franky to sound and Clancy Brown has the Goon just about right. Anyone who hasn't read the Goon yet should do themselves a favor and pick up a book. Its funny and even a little emotional and the artwork by Powell is amazing! Can't wait to see if who will play the Zombie Priest!

I've Never Heard Of This But....

I'm completely in love, I take it this is aimed more at a teen plus audience which i can dig because there aint too any animated films aimed at older audiences. I would love to see the proposed Lobo flick done this way.

Hollywood, please, make this movie.

This is already the best zombie film since SHAUN OF THE DEAD. And Paul Giamatti is AMAZING as Franky. Just amazing. Not sure I'm too keen on Clancy Brown, but I'll take what I can get. That sure LOOKS like Goon, and he doesn't sound like Soupy Sales.

When I first heard they were making a Goon movie my initial thoughts were that it couldn't be done, but this might have swayed me. So is Clancy Brown still doing Goon's voice.

Holy.. Fucking.. SHIT!

Love the Goon series and this blew my mind. Hopefully they have that awesome scene where they strap a vampire to the front of their car while the vampire is on fire!

I was wondering what Blur was up to these days. Now I know! :D Although, produced by David Fincher just ain't quite the same as "directed by", so I'll hold my opinion just yet.
