David Fincher Needs Your Help To Get ‘The Goon’ On The Path To The Big Screen

It’s just as the title says, David Fincher needs your help to get the necessary finances to jumpstart a long-gestating adaptation of the hilarious comic book The Goon (see our recent review of The Goon #42). The sole concept trailer has shown that the project has a lot of potential, mixing action, comedy, horror, and animation into one film. But the film adaptation of The Goon is barely treading water, and as it tries to keep itself alive, Fincher is asking for your help. The filmmaker has launched a Kickstarter project as a way to reach out to the masses in hopes that they can help finance a story reel.
Fincher has even teamed up with the people over at Blur Studios to create a small video that reaches out to all demographics. Hit the jump to see how you can donate and to watch the video as well.
The hilarious video features Fincher and the two people behind The Goon Project, Tim Miller and Jeff Fowler. The three are asking for $400,000 to help fund the creation of a story reel. As of this post, they have a little over $20,000. And this isn’t for just one specific group, Fincher reaches out to Marvel Superhero fans, movie trailer fans, liberals, conservatives, Carly Rae Jepsen fans, and more.
