    Thought this deserved its own thread, rather than being in a bump of the She's Pretty Hot thread.

    Oh my, this is awesome. Kristen Bell and VM creator Rob Thomas are doing a Kickstarter campaign to help finance a VM theatrical move. If they hit their goal, Warner Brothers has agreed to put the movie into production and distribute it.

    From ew.com:

    I am so in. Here's the Kickstarter page:

    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/559914737/the-veronica-mars-movie-project?ref=live

    Let's make this happen, Veronica Mars fans!

    Kristin Bell doesn't have $2 million just sitting around, doing nothing?

    In for $100. I want the Blu-ray/DVD combo pack. :)

    A pledge of $10,000 will get you a role as an extra with a single line of dialogue. Only one such pledge will be accepted.

    If they don't reach the $2 million minimum, all money will be refunded (according to Rob Thomas).

    Not just Rob Thomas. That is how all kickstarter projects work.

    IIRC, they don't actually take your money until the project is over (therefore, there's no need to refund it). They just put a hold on your credit card.

    They take it at the end of the starter period if the funding goal has been reached. From there, if the project starter doesn't deliver the project, it's between them and the backers whether any refunds are given.

    I don't think it is only about the money, because I'm pretty sure they could raise $2million through more traditional means. I believe that it's also being used to show Warner Brothers that there is an audience demand for the movie. I'm really curious to see how much they end up raising.

    Wow. They're more than 25% funded (of the initial $2 million goal) in about 4 hours.

    Wow - even if this doesn't come to fruition (looking at the speed at which they are reaching their goal, it seems a certainty that it will), it was awesome just getting to watch the kickstarter video at the top of the page. I did have trouble placing who "Ryan" was, though - I had to go to IMDB to refresh my memory that he played Dick. He looks less Dickish now, I guess.
