Watch Test Footage for Producer David Fincher’s THE GOON Film Starring Clancy Brown and Paul Giamatti

     September 14, 2011


The film adaptation of Eric Powell’s Dark Horse Comics series The Goon has been in the works for some time. We covered its panel at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con, and it had hosted a panel at the event for several years prior to that. With David Fincher producing and names like Clancy Brown and Paul Giamatti attached to lend their voices, you might think that a green light wouldn’t be all that difficult to come across. That said, years later the film is still looking for funding meaning that fans of the character are still waiting to see The Goon come to life on screen. While early test footage may not be exactly what said fans are hoping for, it will have to suffice for the time being. Check out some footage for yourself after the jump and learn the all-important skill of taking out a “Slackjaw” after a night of alcoholic indulgence.

Here’s the test footage that creator Eric Powell tweeted [via CBM]:

Here’s a brief synopsis for The Goon Volume One: Nothin’ But Misery [from Amazon]:

Bones will be broken and heads will roll! The Goon is a laugh-out-loud action-packed romp through the streets of a town infested with zombies. An insane priest is building himself an army of the undead, and there’s only one man who can put them is their place: the man they call Goon. Collects The Goon series and The Goon Color Special, originally published by Albatross Exploding Funny Books; presented here for the first time in full color.
