We have the company of Veronica Mars to thank for the latest and greatest cancelled TV shows getting their fans involved in Kickstarter Campaigns to raise funds for producing a movie. The VM fans have come together and managed to raise $5.7 million for the production of a reunion movie. With that said, could this possibly mean a revival of some other well loved TV shows that were cancelled before their end? Well as an avid fan of Ugly Betty I have news for the UB fans that there is a fan that is starting a Kickstarter Campaign for a UB movie. Why you ask? WHY NOT! Since the show ended in 2010, the fans have eagerly waited for a movie that would show us where our favorite girl to love would end up. Would Daniel still be in London with her? Will Wilhelmina and Marc adjust to finally being in charge of MODE? Or, are there not enough loose ends to be tied up for there to be a movie? Check out the Kickstarter Video below and if you are a UB fan, you better pass this on. I want this to happen.
So, will we now start to see more and more fans coming out of the woodwork for kickstarter campaigns? Or will this fad soon be over? If the TV viewers of the world were smart enough, I would say that kickstarter campaigns might be the best new way of getting movies to be made. With the sincere lack of confidence that Hollywood has with most movie ideas now a days, why not ask the fans to be the producers for projects they want to see on the big screen. If that’s the case, could we possibly use the kickstarter campaigns as an excuse to see some other cancelled TV shows be brought to a theater near you? And when I say “other cancelled TV shows,” you know I’m totally talking about the recently cancelled “LEVERAGE.” I’d be all other that kickstarter campaign.
