It's been a long while since last we heard anything of David Fincher's take on Dark Horse Entertainment's The Goon, but since his latest flick, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, is ready to be unleashed, the visionary director is making the rounds and offering updates on both that and Black Hole.

We've been talking about an adaptation of The Goon ever since the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con, where some early footage was revealed, and despite big names attached like David Fincher, Clancy Brown, and Paul Giamatti, the flick is still looking to find funding. Maybe the following PSA can help to move things along!
