A while ago we showed you the teaser footage for Eric Powell’s Goon animated film.  Now Powell has posted an early Goon test film that plays out as a PSA about dealing with zombies.

This is early rough test animation for the David Fincher / Blur Studios / Dark Horse Entertainment produced film THE GOON. Based on the Dark Horse Comic’s series by Eric Powell.

Clancy Brown and Paul Giamatti
provided the voices for this test.


For a look at a more polished test for this film, check out Blur’s proof of concept trailer here-


As of now this film is still looking for funding.

LOOKING FOR FUNDING!? Are you kidding me? Why hasn’t someone snatched this project up?  Oh, and Mr. Powell, you might consider checking out Kickstarter.

    For pity’s sake, someone needs to fund this. It looks great and would be hilarious.

    Not that I mean to complain, but clicking the link just takes you to the test footage that’s been circulating for a while now.

    Looks like fun. “Now I’m gonna learn you boys a thing or two about eternal bliss!” Good line.

      I always hear Frankie is the squeaky voiced Budweiser lizard… Sort of a Billy Crystal “I hate it when dat happens” kinda voice.
