Thought this deserved its own thread, rather than being in a bump of the She's Pretty Hot
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.
In the spring of next year, the Veronica Mars faithful could be watching their beloved heroine (plus her pals Wallace and Mac, bad-boy ex Logan, proud P.I. pops Keith, and more) on the big screen as long as they kick in a few bucks right now to get things started. Today, Thomas and Bell are launching a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for a low-budget Mars movie that would be shot this summer. The goal: $2 million in 30 days. If they reach it, Warner Bros. Digital Distribution has agreed to put the movie into production and pick up the tab for marketing, promotion, and distribution. (The film would be released in the first quarter of 2014 for a limited-time theatrical run, before moving to VOD, iTunes, and other digital platforms.) If they dont reach the goal: No movie.
I am so in. Here's the Kickstarter page:
Let's make this happen, Veronica Mars fans!
