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
"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."
And this wasn't just a pipe dream as Warner Bros. Digital Distribution has committed to back the movie and pick up the marketing, promoting and distribution costs if the initial funds are raised!
To further prove how serious the cast is about making this happen, Bell and Thomas recruited some of Mars'
men to film a short video in hopes of earning your love (ie: money). Watch and keep DONATING!
