Well this sucks!

Movie websites Slashfilm and IFC are reporting the sad story that CGI animated movie The Goon, (not the one doing the rounds right now starring Stifler), may not ever see the light of day. Apparantly the film, based on Eric Powell’s wonderfully dark and gothic graphic novels, which was to be produced by David Fincher, (Seven, The Social Network, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), has slipped into a coma due to problems with the movie’s budget.

Actors Paul Giamatti and Clancy Brown had been confirmed as the voice leads back in 2009 and various stills and even a lengthy teaser trailer, (see above), had been released, but it now it seems that cash has simply run out and The Goon might never be finished.
