Interview With GOON Creator Eric Powell

"We know that David Fincher is producing and Eric Powell wrote the script. We know Paul Giamatti and Clancy Brown are starring as Frankie and Goon, respectively, and now we know Blur Studio’s Tim Miller and Jeff Fowler are co-directing with Fincher mentoring the two."

Yeah. That is pretty much everything we know and have known about David Fincher's producing project, THE GOON, for a quite a while now. Then we've had their test footage pop up at this year's Comic Con. And now: GOON creator Eric Powell sat down with Quint from for an interview -- and revealed some of their strategy to push for studio involvement and get the project off the ground.

It's been a little over a year, that the project was first announced. So now, after a year's worth of development, they are finally setting up meetings and aim for a defined budget to launch. And pretty much the same thing is to be said of Fincher's other animated producing and part-directing job, HEAVY METAL, which has attached a huge load of talent -- yet is still struggling to gain studio backing.

With THE GOON, at least, it seems we will know more within the next couple of months.

Big thanks to contributors Thiago and Fitz!
