If you’re one of the many fans who were more than a bit disappointed when the CW pulled the plug on Veronica Mars, you may have something to finally be happy about. That’s right, thanks to Kickstarter, the often-discussed movie version of the show might just end up becoming a reality.
Instead of waiting for a studio or other entity to fund a movie version of the show, series creator Rob Thomas and star Kristen Bell have decided to take the matter into their own hands and ask the fans to fund the project via Kickstarter. And fund they have.
In less than twelve hours since the Kickstarter was launched, the Veronica Mars campaign had already broken the $100,000 mark. In fact, it’s already over $500,000 at this point. They’re looking to raise $2,000,000 in the next 30 days and who knows, at this rate, they might just get there.
Getting a movie made this way is pretty awesome and opens up a whole buch of possibilities for other fan-favorites being funded this way. Firefly reunion movie anyone?
So, if you want to see a Veronica Mars movie, now’s your chance to help make it a reality. For more, check out the video after the break.
UPDATE: They are now over $2,000,00 and it only took about 12 hours. Amazing.
