Starring Sean William Scott, the movie has been sold in the UK, Australia, France, Germany, Russia Scandinavia, Latin America, Turkey, the Middle East, Indonesia and South Africa, and several other markets. Magnolia’s Magnet picked up Goon for US distribution at Toronto and plans a March theatrical release.
