KICKSTARTER RAISES FUNDS FOR VERONICA MARS MOVIE

April 15, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

Veronica Mars certainly had a lot of fans, it turns out — at least 91,585. That’s how many have kicked in funds on Kickstarter to back a movie version of the teen-friendly TV series that aired for three seasons beginning in 2004 on UPN and its successor, The CW. That’s a record number of contributors, and the amount raised — $5,702,153 — makes it the third-highest-funded project in the history of Kickstarter. The original goal by series creator Rob Thomas and series star Kristen Bell was to raise $2 million to fund the movie. They reached that goal within 10 hours after the Kickstarter drive began. Production of the movie is scheduled to begin this summer.
