Be patient comic fans as the animated feature film version of The Goon is still in the works, it’s just a long, hard road says creator Eric Powell. “I just finished writing the script a few months back, and Blur is working on a lot of test stuff,” Powell tells Comic Book Resources. “Fincher is working on a film right now, so we’re waiting for him to get some space so we can start showing some of this stuff off. I’m pretty happy with everything so far. We’ve just got to work to get to the next point. This is a slow, long process.” Clancy Brown and Paul Giamatti have both been confirmed to lend their voices, check out two CG tests here.
“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.”
