The movie wants to make its first steps towards reality.
Eric Powell has launched a Kickstarter campaign to produce a story reel for a Goon feature length animated film. While test footage for the film has existed for over a year now, the movie has not been picked up by any studio for production. Powell and his team are hoping to crowdfund funds to produce a full length story reel based of Powell's movie script which can then be shopped to various production studios.
Powell is asking for $400,000, which will go directly towards the production of this story reel. The funding will also help pay for Clancy Brown and Paul Giamatti's appearances as the Goon and Franky in the story reel. Rewards include movie posters, t-shirts and access to a blog that details the film's progress.
I think it's important to note that donating towards the fund will NOT guarantee the film making it to the silver screen. Even if the Kickstarter is successful, the movie still needs to find a studio, who will then have to fund the remaining $39,600,000 needed to make a full length CGI film.
Be sure to check out the kickstarter, and while you're at it, check out our own Ken Eppstein's kickstarter project, which asks for only a fraction of Powell's campaign and guarantees cold hard comics should it fund.
