[Movies] The Goon's Kickstarter Fund Was A Success
Posted by Joseph Lee on 11.12.2012



Superhero Hype reports that the Kickstarter for The Goon was a success.

The campaign was criticized by fans, as David Fincher is a producer and likely could have written a check for the $400,000 needed. Co-director Tim Miller said on Last Call With Carson Daly: "David Fncher writing a check for $400,000 is not going to get this made. It's about getting the fans involved and showing the studios it's not just a Hollywood vanity project."

The campaign was a hit, as it managed to surpass its $400,000 goal. The Kickstarter was to create a story reel (an animated story board with voice actors, sound effects and music). It will reveal the entire film and give investors an idea of what Fincher and Blur Studios want to make. The total amount given to the film was $441,900. There were 7,500 backers with some giving as much as $10,000. The studio broke down what will happen with the money with a graph that you can see below.

Creator Eric Powell wrote on Twitter: "I can't tell you how much I appreciate you guys. Thanks for pushing us to do a kickstarter and thanks for pushing it! Won a major battle, Goon fans. To win the war we still have to sell the film."

The film, if made, will have Clancy Brown as The Goon and Paul Giamiatti as his friend Frankie. Here's a synopsis: The Goon follows the adventures of a muscle-bound brawler who claims to be the primary enforcer for a feared mobster. The stories have a paranormal and comedic edge to them and concern ghosts, zombies, bog lurks, mad scientists and "skunk apes."
