Veronica Mars Movie

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/559914737/the-veronica-mars-movie-project/widget/video.html

After being off the air seven years, Veronica Mars is still so beloved that fans pledged two million dollars, in eleven hours to make a movie.

Veronica Mars was a brilliant show with witty writing, charming characters and substantial story lines. The film noir take on a high school Harriet the Spy was funny at times and terrifying others. Taking on the classes in school and out, Mars sought the truth and is perfect at exacting revenge.

Creator Rob Thomas brought together Kristen Bell, Ryan Hansen, Jason Dohring and Enrico Colantoni to help support the cause in a charming video (above).

It is amazing how fast this money was raised, and it’s wonderful to see the love not only from fans but from the cast as well. Below are some exerpts from Thomas’ perfect plea for fan support and Bell’s sweet letter to fans. To read the whole letter and donate to the movie, click here.

I probably stoked fan fervor in my optimistic comments about the prospects. Warner Bros. wasn’t convinced there was enough interest to warrant a major studio-sized movie about Veronica and the project never got off the ground.

Of course, Warner Bros. still owns Veronica Mars and we would need their blessing and cooperation to pull this off. Kristen and I met with the Warner Bros. brass, and they agreed to allow us to take this shot. They were extremely cool about it, as a matter of fact. Their reaction was, if you can show there’s enough fan interest to warrant a movie, we’re on board. So this is it. This is our shot.

I suppose we could fail in spectacular fashion, but there’s also the chance that we completely revolutionize how projects like ours can get made. No Kickstarter project ever has set a goal this high. It’s up to you, the fans, now. If the project is successful, our plan is to go into production this summer and the movie will be released in early 2014.

dearest marshmallows…

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.

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.

I promise to give it my all. i promise to work my hardest to give everyone a little bit more Veronica, and i will be oh so honored to do so.

I only ask for one thing in return.

If I ever die, do me a favor. Go on Oprah and tell the world that I loved kittens.

LoVe to you ALL,

kristen bell
