Many fans have wanted it to happen for a long time, and they actually got to have a say in getting it to happen. A "Veronica Mars" movie will actually happen, and it is all in part to contributions made to Kickstarter that rocketed the budget for the film over $2 million in a hurry by breaking records on Wednesday, March 13, 2013.
"Holy cow, what a day," Rob Thomas wrote at 5 a.m., less than 24 hours after the project hit Kickstarter.
Thomas is the creator and producer of the cult-classic television series "Veronica Mars" that lasted three seasons on the air. It was a show that told the stories of a wisecracking young detective played by actress Kristen Bell.
Kickstarter history was made as the "Veronica Mars" movie project hit $1 million in the fastest time ever: four hours and 24 minutes. The previous record was about seven hours and that was held for a new Ultima game called "Torment: Tides of Numenera."
Once Wednesday was officially over, Thomas' original goal of $2 million was top and as of Thursday morning, the total sits around $2.6 million. Production on a "Veronica Mars" movie is set to begin this summer and looking at a release date of early 2014.
"We couldn't be happier. We really couldn't," Thomas said in his first project update.
