‘Veronica Mars’ Movie Finally Happening, Via Kickstarter!
Truly, the golden age for cancelled TV is upon us. Whereas a short time from now will see the long-awaited release of new ‘Arrested Development‘ episodes on Netflix, it seems ‘Veronica Mars‘ will soon return from the dead with an official movie as well! No mere pipe dream, Kristen Bell, creator Rob Thomas and the cast have opened up the ‘Veronica Mars’ movie with an official Kickstarter campaign to raise funds, shooting the film this summer! Find out how you can contribute to the ‘Veronica Mars’ movie inside!
‘Veronica Mars’ fans may not have had any new cases to celebrate since 2007, but today the once pipe dream hopes of a ‘Veronica Mars’ movie have finally come true. Via Entertainment Weekly, we’ve learned that the cast has put together a Kickstarter campaign to raise upwards of $2 million to shoot the film on a moderate budget this very summer.
Should the campaign reach the $2 million goal, Warner Bros. Digital Distribution will put the movie into production and pick up the tab for marketing, promotion, and distribution. Shooting this summer with post-production in the fall, the film would be likely released in the first quarter of 2014 for a limited theatrical run, before moving to on-demand, iTunes, and other digital platforms. Of course, if the goal isn’t met within 30 days, the ‘Veronica Mars’ movie might remain in limbo after all!
As with many Kickstarter campaigns, the production provides a number of incentives for donations of different sizes, ranging from t-shirts and copies of the script to premiere invitations and a part in the actual movie! Check out the official video of the cast and crew announcing the ‘Veronica Mars’ movie in the video below, send your donations, and tell us what you want to see from the film in the comments!
