Watch: Test PSA Video from Eric Powell's 'The Goon' Animated Movie
"Quality you can bludgeon with!" We're still waiting to see Eric Powell's animated comic book movie The Goon, as the project has been stuck in development hell, unable to get the financing. David Fincher even showed up to panel at Comic-Con in 2010 in support of the film, where they showed some early test footage in a bar. Following that event, a teaser trailer debuted, but the project still hasn't gone anywhere. Now Powell himself has released another test footage PSA on YouTube (via CS) featuring The Goon, with Clancy Brown as the voice (and Paul Giamatti as Franky), to try and drum up some more buzz. Check it out below!
Watch the test footage from Blur Studio for Eric Powell's The Goon, embedded from YouTube:
The Goon is a comic book series created by Eric Powell in 1999 and published by Avatar Press. It follows the adventures of the Goon, a muscle-bound brawler who claims to be the primary enforcer for 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 (ahh!). The series has a distinctly paranormal slant, with the average story concerning ghosts, ghouls, skunk-apes, extra-dimensional aliens, and mad scientists. While they've been teasing this for a while, it still doesn't have actual release plans yet.
