First Look: David Fincher's Animated Version of The Goon
Last year during Comic-Con we announced that Eric Powell's cult comic The Goon was being adapted into an animated feature film by none other than David Fincher. Although I've never personally read the comic, it seems like a pretty damn good cult comic, and I'm very interested in seeing how the movie will turn out. Well thanks to Quint at Ain't It Cool News, we've finally got a first look at the first few shots from The Goon movie and it looks much better than I was expecting. Blur Studios, also behind the upcoming Heavy Metal movie, is developing this, which is one of the first complete features they're entirely behind creating.
The Goon is a comic book series created by Eric Powell in 1999. The story is about 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. The series has a distinctly paranormal slant, with the average story concerning ghosts, ghouls, skunk-apes, extra-dimensional aliens, and mad scientists. I really can't wait to see more from this soon, because it certainly looks awesome so far! Thoughts?
