UPDATE: David Fincher Options Dark Horse’s ‘The Goon’

Short but sweeeet news this afternoon as it was announced that The Goon has been optioned by acclaimed director and producer David Fincher and Academy-Award nominated Blur Studio to develop as a CG animated feature film, according to TheGoon.com. The Goon is a comic book series created by Eric Powell in 1999. 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. Update: Powell, who broke the news Wednesday on his website, would write the screenplay for “Goon,” and Fincher would produce.
