'Veronica Mars' movie gets Kickstarter campaign - let's make this happen!
OK, marshmallows. Time to put your money where your mouth is. Star Kristen Bell and "Veronica Mars" creator Rob Thomas have launched a Kickstarter campaign for a "Veronica Mars" movie. They need $2 million in the next 30 days and then a V-Mars big screen update will begin filming this summer.
We are so excited, we can hardly stand it. Especially since Thomas has revealed some of the movie's details. He writes:
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. Keep in mind that the more money we raise, the cooler movie we can make. A two million dollar fundraising total probably means cross words are exchanged at the class reunion. Three million? We can afford a full-on brawl. Ten million? Who knows... For some reason the Neptune High class reunion takes place on a nuclear submarine! A Hobbit shows up! There's a Bollywood end-credit dance number! I've always wanted to direct Bill Murray. We'll figure out something cool. Hey, if that total goes high enough, I'll bet the good folks at Warner Bros. will agree a sequel is a good idea.
Thanks to everyone who hasn't lost faith.
A 10-year Neptune High reunion?! Be still our fluttering hearts.
I am currently the happiest blonde in a hamster ball the world has ever seen. We have been waiting so long to make this movie dream a movie reality, and it's because of YOUR commitment, YOUR persistence, that we finally have a chance. We just have one more step to go.
You have banded together like the sassy little honey badgers you are and made this possibility happen. I promise if we hit our goal, we will make the sleuthiest, snarkiest, it's-all-fun-and-games-'til-one-of-you-gets-my-foot-up-your-a** movie we possibly can.
So, get your butts over to Kickstarter and donate. You can even get a part in the movie for a $10,000 pledge.
