On his blog, GOON creator Eric Powell makes a simple announcement:
THEGOON.COM is proud to announce that THE GOON has been optioned by acclaimed director and producer DAVID FINCHER and Academy-Award nominated BLUR STUDIO to develop as a CG animated feature film with Dark Horse Entertainment.
The Hollywood Reporter has a bit more:
No studio is yet attached, and deals are being negotiated. Dark Horse, which has a first-look deal with Universal, is aiming to develop the project in-house before setting it up.
Blur is best known for its shorts, including the Academy Award-nominated “Gopher Broke,” as well as its work in commercials and special effects. “Goon” be the company’s first feature.
After the success of SIN CITY and HELLBOY, this would seem a natural.
