The long awaited "Veronica Mars" movie is happening. The cult television drama was canceled after three seasons in 2007, but the fund raising website Kickstarter has launched a campaign to bring the show to the big screen. On Wednesday, March 13 Entertainment Weekly reported that a Kickstarter campaign was started to fund two million dollars in a month for the movie to be filmed over the summer. The project is one of the largest goals for any Kickstarter campaign ever created.
The campaign has launched this morning and has already raised one and a half million dollars. After years of trying to get the project off the ground, show creator Rob Thomas is asking the fans to help make the movie by donating to the campaign. There is a short video about the project which is a cross between a mini episode and the cast hanging out at Kristen Bell's house.
Fans can pledge any amount from ten dollars to eight thousand for prizes like a full copy of the film script, a DVD, T-shirts, movie posters, and even a part in the movie. Check out the campaign website here to pledge your support and find out what the project is all about.
Veronica, Logan, Wallaces, Mac, Keith, Dick and Piz are all expected to be back for the project, which Thomas has hinted will take place years after the show ended. The crime investigating teen and her friends will all be back in Neptune as well.
The "Veronica Mars" movie will shoot in June and July with an anticipated release in early 2014. Warner Bros. owns the rights to the show and will give the project a limited theatrical release if fully funded. All the money raised will go towards the film's production, even after reaching the two million dollar mark.
