Test Footage of ‘The Goon’ From Comic-Con 2009 Proves Once Again That This Adaptation NEEDS to Be Made

Just earlier this year I was wondering exactly what’s up with David Fincher’s adaptation of Eric Powell’s The Goon, one of my favorite comics of all time. We saw a proof of concept test back in 2010 that looked phenomenal, and haven’t heard a peep since. Well, as it turns out the entire reason it hasn’t been made yet is simply because no one wants to fund it. As such, creator Eric Powell has gone ahead and debuted the footage from way back at Comic-Con 2009 as a sort of public service announcement to announce the need for funding (and to show you the proper way to kill yourself a slackjaw). Check it out after the jump.


How could any studio not want to get this project off the ground? It’s a huge era for comic book movies, the animation is superb and you have David f***ing Fincher begging to direct it and get it made. Fincher’s name carries a lot of weight in Hollywood and he’s proven that he’s truly a fan of the series that wants his adaptation to be faithful through the use of clips like this, that perfectly capture the tone of the books.

Someone, anyone, get this made.
