Veronica Mars: The Movie

Last week brought about some awfully hopeful news to the fans of the CW show “Veronica Mars.” After three seasons the show was canceled and yes, as many fans made it clear, there were lots of lose ends that needed to be tied up. No lie, when I saw the series finale all I could think was, ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? After the three seasons of sitting through the best and worst of the Mars family and the city of Neptune, CA and all the fans got was open ended questions with no clear answer. Since the finale, fans and cast members have talked about a movie to close out the series in high form. Well it’s that time die-hard fans. Last Wednesday the Kickstarter Campaign page went up with a video starring Kristen Bell, Jason Dohring, Enrico Colantoni, Ryan Hansen and Creator Rob Thomas. They talk about how they all want to put a movie together but that money is an issue. They go on to say that they’re going to fundraise the money for the production by asking fans to chip in. Their goal was $2million. They reached that goal in less than 12 hours. As of today there are 56, 235 fans that put money towards this campaign raising $3,684,383 and there’s still 24 Days left in the campaign. You can pledge as little as a $1. Each level of donation gets a special perk, most of which, you known you want if you’re a die-hard fan. Here’s what Rob Thomas had to say about additional funds past the $2 million mark, “We can afford a full-on brawl. Ten million? Who knows… For some reason the Neptune High class reunion takes place on a nuclear submarine! A Hobbit shows up! There’s a Bollywood end-credit dance number! I’ve always wanted to direct Bill Murray. We’ll figure out something cool. Hey, if that total goes high enough, I’ll bet the good folks at Warner Bros. will agree a sequel is a good idea.”

Since the goal was met, Thomas wrote on twitter that production for the movie would start this summer and be set to release early 2014. Perhaps this fundraising thing would be a good idea for other TV shows with unexpected cancelations? Somethings telling me this is going to start a new trend.
