Here is Your Chance to Fund the VERONICA MARS Movie – seriously!
In what can only be described as some of the greatest news of all time (yes, all time), Rob Thomas, Kristen Bell, Warner Bros, and Kickstarter have teamed up in a way to have fans fund the VERONICA MARS movie we’ve all been biting our nails about since the show ended 6 years ago. Rob and Kristen have left messages on the Kickstarter page, detailing why they need your help (at press time, they’d raised $150k, and their most vocal supporter, @IMKristenBell, hadn’t even signed online yet)!
Says Rob: “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.”
Kristen adds: “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-ass movie we possibly can.”
So what are you waiting for? Donations start at $1, and you can donate as much or as little as your little heart desires! I’m all in – what about you?
