Let's not forget about all of the free marketing buzz this method will get.

As of right now, they're up to $1,153,206 with 16,364 backers, which means the average pledge has been $70. Nice work, fans!

All of the available Veronica Mars packages that include tickets to the premiere are gone already. Wow. Rob might be kicking himself that he priced those too low.

Up to $1.3M!!

Rob Thomas just tweeted this: "Okay, here it is! Stretch goal. $3 Million or Logan Echolls doesn't survive the movie!"

I was surprised to realize that Schmidt from New Girl played Deputy Leo on VM. Never even dawned on me...

I had forgotten about this as well until Kristen posted a pic of herself on twitter with him and Enrico Colantoni and labeled it as a reunion photo.

I hope Rob Thomas has all his accounting ducks in a row because otherwise all that $$ is going to be counted as income by the IRS.

I wonder how many cast members they can bring back for a low budget movie? I suppose I haven't seen ANY of them in any recent work...so, maybe all of them?

My. mind. is. blown! He looks so different. I think he was much more attractive on VM. I wonder what changed. He's actually a little leaner now maybe? Makes his chin jut out more?

Yeah, I think that the difference is he's a lot leaner now, so his face looks a little different.

I may have mentioned this before in passing, but Percy Daggs (Wallace) is a coach and ref in my son's flag football league. I recognized him out there a year or so ago, and talked to him a bit about the show. He is still acting here and there - I guess he had an arc on Southland recently. If I see him anytime soon I'll have to ask him about the movie. Wallace needs to be in it!

I can't imagine the person who bought that, though. Looks like they're not going to have any problem raising their goal.
Here's more info on the guy who kicked in the $10K.

I hope this actually comes to fruition and you all get something for your money. The movie hasn't been written or filmed yet, it could be a very long time before you get your reward. What happens if they start filming and something falls through? You've already given your money over. What happens if the film goes over budget? Also, why don't backers get to participate in the profits of the film, if there are any? If I'm paying $35 for a DVD, I would want some sort of prorated share of the gross until I earn back my pledge minus the $10 it would cost to buy the film on my own.

This is all too risky for me to back as there's been plenty of smaller scale kickstarters that have gone sideways and people out their pledges.

You could buy a turkey sandwich tomorrow for lunch and the bread might be stale. Why take a chance on anything?

Hey, it's your money. If you're fine with fronting $$ for a loan that may never be paid back, good on ya.
