...and what could be more special than welcoming back MR. PAUL GIAMATTI to the recording booth! Great session today with him and the wildly-talented VO powerhouse FRED TATISCIORE! Can't begin to express how THANKFUL we are to have the help of these amazing talents, nor how GRATEFUL we are to our backers for making it all possible! Things are getting VERY exciting on this kickstarter and we're thrilled to have you along for the ride... stay tuned!!
Deepest apologies for the radio silence Goon Backers! It's been a busy and exciting year at the studio **cough DEADPOOL** with hopefully much more excitement and news to come! Here's Tim and Jeff to give you an update on the state of the GOON union and stay tuned for more Goon Kickstarter updates!!! Thanks for your patience!
Here it is!
Ok, maybe that's a lowdown sh*tty trick but wanted to show you how CLOSE things are getting on this project! We've made huge strides this year and are hoping to announce a date soon for the FINAL SCREENING PARTY. We've still got some work to do, Eric has been tuning the script in a few areas and we'll need to re-record some VO, but the light at the end of the tunnel is there... and we couldn't be more excited to share the film with all our backers. Thanks for all your support and patience... we couldn't ask for better fans!
"The Goon" Movie Co-Director
It's 2015, Goon fans... which by ancient celestial patterns in the swamp gas can mean only ONE thing.... it's the YEAR OF THE GOON KICKSTARTER! We apologize for the radio silence, but rest assured the heart of the Goon story reel still beats strong and true!
We'll have some more substantial updates soon, but to get your GOON FIX in the meantime, please head over to Dark Horse Digital and check out Eric's epic new four part mini-series:
THE OCCASION OF REVENGE!!!
Hey, Goon fans, as you know David Fincher, Blur Studios, Dark Horse Entertainment, and I have been slugging away at getting the Goon on the big screen for some time. It’s been a long road, but being the stubborn S.O.B.’s that we are, we refused to take Hollywood’s lack of vision for non-childish animation as an answer and remain undaunted in bringing you a faithful adaptation of Goon in all his pipe wrench across monster mug glory. There is a new generation of animation fans out there who want more mature material that isn’t filled with rainbows and kittens and cookie cutter plot lines of mass marketed crap meant to sell fluffy toys to five year olds. THEY WANT THINGS SHOT IN THE FACE AND NON-FLUFFY TOYS OF THINGS BEING SHOT IN THE FACE!! And we’re ready to give you that!
Thanks to your unwavering support and help with a record breaking Kickstarter program to fund the Goon story reel (a loosely animated story board version of the entire film), we continue to inch closer to our final goal of Franky, via Paul Giamatti, screaming, “KNIFE TO THE EYE!”, in theaters world wide! (THE GOON KICKSTARTER PAGE) I know a lot of you must be wondering what’s been going on since the Kickstarter. Well, everyone at Blur has been hard at work on the story reel and are just about finished compiling the first edited pass. At that point, Fincher, Blur, and I will be sitting down to go over some final edits. To say it’s going well would be putting it lightly. I have seen about 90% of the story reel footage, and I’m super proud of the efforts of everyone involved. Everyone remains just as passionate as ever to get this film completed, and it shows in every frame of the story reel. We still have hurtles to cross, but armed with this story reel and your overwhelming support, we remain confident we will find the right home for this film.
