Eric Powell on "Goon" Plans, Upcoming Animated Movie
Comic creator Eric Powell has discussed his upcoming plans for his comic book series The Goon with Comic Book Resources, including an update on the status of the animated feature film that was optioned by director David Fincher in July 2008. Powell notes that he “just finished writing the script a few months back,” and that Blur Studios was working on CGI tests for the film. It is still not known whether Fincher will direct the movie himself or simply serve as a producer. However, Powell said that he had always wanted to be much more involved in the film version, and that it has been “a great experience so far.”
The Goon returns to comic book stands next week after an 8-month hiatus, with issue #33 being done entirely without dialogue and resuming a bi-monthly schedule in 2010. He is also working on a new series called Chimichanga which will be self-published.
