Dreams do come true! Rob Thomas, creator of the quippy cult detective series Veronica Mars has decided it's finally time to make that Veronica Mars movie we've been obsessing over for years. Thomas has launched a Kickstarter campaign in hopes of crowdfunding the $2 million budget.
As of right now the whole gang is back in (including Kristen Bell obviously) and Warner Bros. (who owns VM) has given the movie its blessing so that Thomas can try to raise the funds. The pledge awards are rad (someone already bought the speaking role in the movie for 10K, sorry!). Here's Thomas vision for the future of Veronica:
Life has taken Veronica away from Neptune. In the years since spoiling Keith's chances to be reelected sheriff, Veronica hasn't taken a case. But something big is about to bring her back home and back to her calling. My goal is to include as many of your favorite characters as possible. It is, after all, time for Veronica’s 10-year high school reunion. Keep in mind that the more money we raise, the cooler movie we can make. A two million dollar fundraising total probably means cross words are exchanged at the class reunion. Three million? We can afford a full-on brawl. Ten million? Who knows... For some reason the Neptune High class reunion takes place on a nuclear submarine! A Hobbit shows up! There’s a Bollywood end-credit dance number! I’ve always wanted to direct Bill Murray. We’ll figure out something cool. Hey, if that total goes high enough, I’ll bet the good folks at Warner Bros. will agree a sequel is a good idea.
Sounds awesome — we're so in. Visit the Kickstarter page.
