Fincher Plays Rough With "The Goon"

The animated feature "The Goon", based on the 1999 Dark Horse Comics comic book series by writer/illustrator Eric Powell is
co-produced by Dark Horse' Mike Richardson ("The Mask") and David Fincher ("Fight Club") for Blur Studio, Inc.

"...'The Goon' was an orphan raised by his 'Aunt Kizzie', a carnival side-show 'strong-woman'. When wanted gangster 'Labrazio' made the carnival his hiding place, Goon confronted him, with Labrazio showing Goon a book containing the names of all his underworld connections.

"But the police track Labrazio down and surround the trailer.

"In the resulting shoot-out, Goon's Aunt Kizzie is gunned down by Labrazio. Goon then kills the mobster, steals his book of contacts and takes over his entire criminal operation..."

The Goon is a hulking figure, wearing the hat he took from Labrazio.
