SDCC 2010: More Screwed-up, Slackjawed Footage from 'The Goon'

This wonderfully dark-humored footage from Eric Powell's The Goon comes courtesy of MTV's Splashpage who dropped the news just a mere few hours ago. According to them this new, extended footage of Tuesday's teaser was developed by Blur Studio, a rather impressive animation house from Venice, CA. MTV also confirmed that film director David Fincher (se7en, Fight Club) would be leading the project as producer and that they are currently "looking for a studio to snatch up the project and finance production."

Since The Goon is one of this Strange Kid's favorite comics, I could definitely see this film as being one of my all time favorites already. Heck, I've watched this footage alone roughly 3 times already this morning... it's just that incredible to see these characters come to life! If no one in Hollywood doesn't want to pick this up, then I truly have lost faith in their ability to judge what makes an entertaining film experience. The Goon is exactly what I had hoped Rob Zombie El Superbeasto would have been and then some.

    I hope to see Psychic Seal! If only for a few moments.

    Now that... would be freaking awesome. :)

    It was also encouraging to hear that with Fincher's 'Facebook' movie wrapping that his focus would be soley on 'The Goon.'
