Veronica Mars fans have been requesting a movie ever since the UPN show went off the air in 2007, and now their dreams are closer to reality than ever before.
At 8: 57 p.m. EST, less than 24 hours after going live, the Veronica Mars movie Kickstarter campaign reached its $2 million goal! Veronica Mars herself, Kristen Bell, tweeted her excitement, writing: "I love you guys. You are all SO spectacular. I am speechless."
Along with creator Rob Thomas, Bell backed the new Kickstarter campaign with the aim of filming Veronica Mars: The Movie this summer!
"Dearest marshmallows," Kristen writes on the offical Kickstarter page, "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."
