The world of TV and movies received a sizable buck yesterday when long-canceled cult TV series 'Veronica Mars' set out to finance a movie via Kickstarter, only to surpass its $2,000,000 goal within hours of the first day of its 30-day allotment. Its momentum seems to have slowed, only somewhat, as the total approaches $3,000,000, so what will 'Veronica Mars' creator Rob Thomas do with the remaining 29 days?
Just hours ago, it was announced that a 'Veronica Mars' movie might hit the big screen if fans pledged two million dollars to kickstarter. It turns out there was enough interest and then some. Within the first day of the campaign, within the first ten hours, 31,697 contributors got 'Veronica Mars' over the $2 mil threshold.
Truly, the golden age for cancelled TV is upon us. Whereas a short time from now will see the long-awaited release of new 'Arrested Development' episodes on Netflix, it seems 'Veronica Mars' will soon return from the dead with an official movie as well! No mere pipe dream, Kristen Bell, creator Rob Thomas and the cast have opened up the 'Veronica Mars' movie with an official Kickstarter campaign to raise funds, shooting the film this summer! Find out how you can contribute to the 'Veronica Mars' movie inside!
Given so many cancelled TV series in the last few years, and the flurry of resurgences that see shows like 'Arrested Development' returning from the grave, one name that hasn't gotten much play in recent years is that of a potential movie wrapping up the critically adored P.I. series 'Veronica Mars.' Series star Kristen Bell certainly hasn't been starved for work since its end, but what does she have to say on the progress of a movie?
