Now this just makes me smile; THR got word this morning that Dark Horse, David Fincher and Blur Entertainment are joining forces to bring Eric Powell’s The Goon to the big screen as a CG-anmiated film. And damnit, I love The Goon.
For anyone who’s never read it, the Dark Horse comic follows a muscle-bound, stocky badass who fights demons, ghosts, werewolves and anything else the supernatural wants to throw at him. It’s a fun, romping adventure through a world filled with monsters, and CG is really the only way I could see it being done right.
Dark Horse is looking to develop the film in-house before handing it to a studio, which is a good way to make sure no one fucks with Powell’s vision and makes The Goon into, say, a 70’s-era jive-talking pimp or anything.
And oh yeah, David Fincher is producing, which can only mean good things. Check out the official Goon site to learn more about it!
