Veronica Mars: The Movie…
Well in case you’ve been under a rock, racked with grief over the end of Google Reader, or wrapped up in the election of the new Pope, I wanted to share with you all some great news. On Wednesday Sasha Knight (@sknighteditor) tweeted this link Kickstarter-VM … Go ahead, take a look!
That’s right… Rob Thomas, the creator of one of my all-time favorite shows, is looking to make a Veronica Mars movie this summer! Rob, along with some of the original cast like star Kristen Bell, is using a wonderful website called Kickstarter to fan-finance the movie. In the first day alone, they exceeded their goal of $2,000,000. Fans can donate funds to help finance the project in exchange for some great swag and rewards like t-shirts, movie posters, cast voicemail messages, dvds, and for one lucky (and wealthy) fan – a speaking roll in the movie. The project has been so successful, Rob has promised more reward levels soon!
Here is a sample of how wickedly wonderful this group is together:
If you haven’t seen the original TV program, I highly recommend it. It is one of the most creative, well-written shows. I am so geeked out over this news that I already donated to the Kickstarter fund! I’m looking forward to 2014 and a Veronica Mars movie!
So… what about you… Are you excited about the news of a Veronica Mars movie?
For fans of the original show-what do you want to see on the big screen?
Is there another TV show or book that you would like to see made into a movie and would help finance via Kickstarter?
Thanks for stopping to chat!
