In order to raise the necessary funds to make The Goon movie a reality, David Fincher, Eric Powell, Blur Studios and Dark Horse Entertainment have launched a Kickstarter campaign. The team have released a proof of concept clip already, and although it was very well received, they just can't seem to get the project into production.



"After investing hundreds of thousands of their own money and countless hours of effort, the team has opted to reach out to The Goon fanbase, comic book lovers, the movie industry, and frankly anyone with a pulse willing to donate, with a Kickstarter campaign to take their development efforts to the next level."


Paul Giamatti and Clancy Brown would return as Frankie and The Goon. Fincher would produce the movie, with Blur's Tim Miller and Jeff Fowler co-directing. You can read all about the campaign and donate by clicking HERE

Spread the word, people! We can do this, The GOON is friggin' sweet and the footage looks outrageous! It has to be made. Donating at least 25 clams.

so you give 10 bucks and you got nothing, or you give 25 bucks and you have almost nothing.

Geez at least with videogame kickstarter's if you give 20 bucks, they give you a copy of the game.

You spend 25 dollars and that doesn't even grant you a ticket to see the movie if it gets released or at least the possibility of seeing it or download it on the internet...
That's like charity :/

I don't want to being part of bringing down this project, so I wish them luck, and I gave 5 bucks.
I was just trying to make a point, projects like this one needs support

How kickstarter changed the world! If this movie gets funded through kickstarter. The film industry will change for ever.

Does this now mean I can say, I own a piece of this move...

Quit worrying about getting something in return.
DioFoRio - 10/12/2012, 12:41 PM
you're telling me as a producer Fincher couldn't rustle up the financiers or reach out to those who could?
Jollem - 10/12/2012, 1:13 PM
i have a hard time believing this whole deal
sameoldthing - 10/12/2012, 2:37 PM
Instead of The Goon we get animated crap like Frankenweenie & Paranorman.
Yea,I know those are for kids but when if I was still young I would enjoy The Goon's adventures more than zombie dogs & a supernatural nerd.

Get Goon made!

That video alone makes me want to donate.
