The Goon

Recommended Posts

Il regista e produttore David Fincher ha deciso di produrre il fumetto pubblicato da Dark Horse, The Goon. Il lungometraggio animato sarà prodotto anche dalla sezione Entertainment della casa editrice e dagli studi di animazione Blur Studios.

La storia, creata da Eric Powell nel 1999, segue le vicende di un energumeno che si unisce alla band del gangster Labrazio e affronta bande rivali, in cui pullulano zombi, uomini-scimmia, scienziati dementi e fantasmi.

Fincher si occuperà di gestire la produzione e all'animazione in CG penseranno i Blur Studios. La sceneggiatura sarà scritta da Powell in persona, che sull'esempio di altri autori seguirà da vicino la seconda vita della propria opera.

Veramente il progetto e' attualmente in stato super-embrionale e non si sa neppure se, una volta partito, sara' blur a curarne la produzione.

Queste le parole di Tim Miller:

Tim Miller here (creative director at blur) chiming in as requested. The film is in early development- it has NOT been set up at a studio and isn't in production. Eric Powell is working on the script and we're doing visual development. It was our choice to get the film planned out before we try and get a studio involved. "Early Development" means concept art, some CG animation tests and the script. And Fincher is a producer--as is blur and Darkhorse-- not directing.

To set the record straight for Capt Cook--Blur has never said ANYWHERE or at ANYTIME that we are "making a movie" We avoid hype and ALWAYS speak the truth. There's a HUGE difference between an announcement that a film is being developed and the film ACTUALLY BEING MADE. And we are careful about the distinction. And to be extra-clear...we're not even putting out these (or any other) press releases....it's just media reporting. This went up because Eric was having a big 10th aniversary party and Darkhorse thought it'd be nice to give fans of the comic some eyecandy. I will say though that development is coming along GREAT and I think the Goon will make an awesome film should we be lucky enough to get a chance to make it.

As for Rockfish and Gopher Broke--those are on the backburner as far as development goes.

As for Heavy Metal--we are still VERY actively engaged in trying to bring that to the big screen but don't have it set up.

When we actually start PRODUCTION on a film is when we'll announce something. Until then it's all hard work, hopes, dreams....cuz that's the way it goes with this Hollywood stuff.

Beh come ha scritto miller (due giorni fa) su cgtalk, quelle immagini sono state mostrate per fare un favore e powell in occasione di un party, da qui siti di gossip come aintitcool hanno speculato... direi che le parole del capo della blur hanno un peso un "pelino" maggiore :)

Sempre prendendo le sue parole, direi che nel momento in cui la cosa diventa ufficiale sicuramente la promuoveranno loro in prima persona :)
