Holy Hell this is awesome news! Not only is David Fincher Involved the movie but Eric Powells 'The Goon' will be done in CG! How great is that! This is great material for Fincher to work with and I have no doubt he will do wonders with this property! Here is What The Goon Website says!
THEGOON.COM is proud to announce that THE GOON has been optioned by acclaimed director and producer DAVID FINCHER and Academy-Award nominated BLUR STUDIOto develop as a CG animated feature film.
It dosen't say if Fincher will direct or not he could just be producing. I would love to see him direct a full CG film though, and 'The Good is perfect for it. If you don't know what 'The Goon' is about here is a little description:
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 with an unnatural hunger for pie, extra-dimensional aliens, and mad scientists.
This whole thing has just happened so we have a long time, but I can't wait to start seeing what this movie will turn into!
