Veronica Mars reaches $2 Million Kickstarter Goal in ONE DAY

March 14, 2013

Well, it looks like those who wanted the Veronica Mars movie are going to get it.

Warner Bros. stated that it would go forward with a film adaptation of the cult detective television series if the project’s Kickstarter campaign reached its goal of $2 million. The campaign commenced this morning with a deadline of April 12.

That 30-day deadline was completely unnecessary, as it reached its goal in a matter of hours!

Yes, thanks to over 31,600 individual backers, the Veronica Mars Kickstarter campaign barely even got started before it was a complete success. Series creator Rob Thomas and star Kristen Bell have succeeded in getting a feature film greenlit (and partially funded) thanks to the power and pocket change of the FANS.

The project set a Kickstarter record by reaching its first $1 million in 4 hours, 24 minutes, according to Deadline.

Perhaps Hollywood has discovered a new way to fund their projects, the consumers.  That can be a good thing… or a bad thing. They already take our money when we go to the theater, buy the dvd/blu-ray, and so on.  Now I fear that instead of using their usual resources and putting up their own money for funding, they’ll look towards us more.  Why not?  They gotta make more profit, baby.
