The fans have spoken: They want a "Veronica Mars" movie. And thanks to their donations totaling $2 million, they'll get it.
It's been more than five years since the smart, sassy teen detective drama with film noir elements said farewell. Since then, series creator Rob Thomas and star Kristen Bell have teased the possibility of a follow-up film, but the prospect seemed unlikely, since the series was so low-rated on UPN and The CW, until now.
Thomas decided to use Kickstarter to raise enough money to film the low-budget movie. Warner Bros. pledged that if the campaign reached the $2 million mark, they would finance the movie's marketing and distribution.
Fans answered the call in droves, setting a Kickstarter record by raising $1 million in four hours and 25 minutes, officially making the "Veronica Mars" movie the most-funded film or video project in the crowdfunding site's history. In less than half a day, the $2 million goal was met.
