Well that didn’t take long. Less than a day after a Kickstarter campaign was launched to fund a potential Veronica Mars feature film, the project is now a go. Series creator Rob Thomas turned to fans to help raise $2 million to produce the film and they definitely came through. Warner Brothers is now on the hook to market and distribute the film, which will supposedly be shot this summer in order to make it to theatres early next year. The total is already up to $2.5 million. That’s still extremely small compared to most movie budgets, but there are 29 days left to add to that.
I have to admit, I’ve never watched an episode of Veronica Mars but I’ve always been meaning to give it a shot. The show revolves around a high school student (played by Kristen Bell) who moonlights as a private detective investigating the murder of her best friend. It seems like something I should be into, so maybe this is the push I need to get on board. Still, if this project turns out to be a success, you can bet there will be plenty more to follow.
