Ever since The CW canceled “Veronica Mars” back in 2007, fans have been wishing for a movie to wrap things up. As of today, the fans finally have the chance to see this wish come true!
It was announced earlier today that series creator Rob Thomas and series star Kristen Bell have launched a Kickstarter fundraising campaign. If 2 million dollars is raised by April 12, a big screen version of “Veronica Mars” will be made!
In regards to when the movie would be released, Thomas states this: “If the project is successful, our plan is to go into production this summer and the movie will be released in early 2014.”
On the Kickstarter page Thomas also speaks a little bit about the plot of the movie. “Life has taken Veronica away from Neptune. In the years since spoiling Keith's chances to be reelected sheriff, Veronica hasn't taken a case. But something big is about to bring her back home and back to her calling. My goal is to include as many of your favorite characters as possible. It is, after all, time for Veronica’s 10-year high school reunion.”
In just over four hours, a million dollars was raised. As of right now, the total is up to $1,656,898. In other words, it’s pretty safe to say we’ll be seeing some more from the residents of Neptune in 2014!
