David Fincher Options "The Goon" for CG Animated Movie
Fight Club director David Fincher and Blur Studio have optioned Eric Powell’s The Goon for a CGI animated feature film. The Goon is a darkly humorous comic published by Dark Horse about a misshapen mob lord battling zombie priests, mad scientists, and Spanish-speaking giant lizards.
UPDATED July 3, 2008: The Hollywood Reporter has a bit more information about the project, noting that Dark Horse has a first-look deal with Universal and is “aiming to develop the project in-house before setting it up” before selecting a studio.
