Full Concept Trailer from The Goon
Posted 07.26.10 by Ryan
Fans got a sneak preview of some teaser footage from the David Fincher-produced animated adaptation of The Goon prior to the San Diego Comic-Con, but now the entire concept trailer has made its way online. Based on Eric Powell's comic book, The Goon features the voices of Clancy Brown and Paul Giamatti as the Goon and Franky, respectively, two friends who fight off the zombie plague. Powell wrote the script for the adaptation and, at the Comic-Con panel for the project, revealed that all the major characters from the comic book would be in the movie.
Pretty much all of the main characters are there. Goon, Frankie, Buzzard, all the guys in the bar, Zombie Priest, all of his entourage ... Peaches.
Despite some of the language in the concept trailer, the movie version will apparently be PG-13, though Fincher says it doesn't mean the adaptation will cut corners. "You could so easily f**k this up by allowing someone to sanitize it and turn it into Pixar lite," said Fincher.
While the footage was created to help raise funds for the movie, it was announced that animators Tim Miller and Jeff Fowler would co-direct the movie should it go forward. Fincher plans to take the concept trailer to various studios and secure financial backing for the movie. Check out the trailer below, courtesy of MTV.
