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.

-Eric
