David Fincher's THE GOON Looks For Funding Through Kickstarter

In order to raise the necessary funds to make The Goon movie a reality, David Fincher, Eric Powell, Blur Studios and Dark Horse Entertainment have launched a Kickstarter campaign. The team have released a proof of concept clip already, and although it was very well received, they just can't seem to get the project into production.

"After investing hundreds of thousands of their own money and countless hours of effort, the team has opted to reach out to The Goon fanbase, comic book lovers, the movie industry, and frankly anyone with a pulse willing to donate, with a Kickstarter campaign to take their development efforts to the next level."

Paul Giamatti and Clancy Brown would return as Frankie and The Goon. Fincher would produce the movie, with Blur's Tim Miller and Jeff Fowler co-directing.

NBC has hired Carlton Cuse (LOST) & Ryan Condal to produce and co-write the show's pilot.

This isn't the first time that Cuse has drank the water from this particular well - he was also a writer and producer on the THE ADVENTURES OF BRISCO COUNTY JR, another genre bending western, close to twenty years ago.


Guillermo Del Toro Says THE HULK TV Show Is Inactive; Offers Up Update on HELLBOY 3

On The Hulk Show:

"Right now, all I know is we've been in a holding pattern for the last eight months. All The say is we're waiting on a writer, but it's been inactive. It's still there as far as I know, but there's been no action on it."

On Hellboy 3:

"Finlay all the culprits have agreed to try. It's very hard to find who will finance it. The Biggest chapter in the three movies is Hellboy becomes The Beast Of The Apocalypse. So we have been inquiring, but if you have a rich uncle that has 130-150 million dollars...."(laughs)


Chloe Moretz Is Bloody Terrifying In Teaser Trailer For CARRIE

Hell hath no fury like a telekinetic scorned! This time around Chloe Moretz takes on the role that Sissy Spacek made famous in Brian De Palma's 1976 horror classic, Carrie. Which is based on the novel "Carrie" by Stephen King.


Bryan Singer's JACK THE GIANT KILLER Gets A New Title And Release Date

Warner Bros. have announced that Jack The Giant KillerSlayer will now hit theatres three weeks earlier than expected on March 1st, 2013. It was originally set to be released on the 22nd of that month, but has moved up to take Elysium's spot after that (and the RoboCop remake) were pushed back by Sony Pictures. The new title doesn't make a HUGE difference, but it arguably distances it somewhat from the well-known fairy tale. However, it's thought that the studio also consider "Slayer" to be more family-friendly than "Killer". Despite the tepid response to the teaser trailer (which can be viewed below), the film has a great cast which includes the likes of Nicholas Hoult, Ewan McGregor and Stanley Tucci.
