Record Breaking 'Veronica Mars' Kickstarter Project Reaches Last Day

Just in case you were desperate to add to the Veronica Mars movie Kickstarter project that series creator Rob Thomas began a few weeks ago, then you better hurry, because today is the last day that donations will be accepted (April 12, 2013).

Of course, you don’t need to worry whether your money makes a difference or not, because the project has already smashed the target needed for Thomas and the original show’s star Kristen Bell to begin work on the movie. In fact, it’s topped $5 million in pledges, a new Kickstarter record by an absolute street. USA Today reports that a delighted Bell posted a video to let the fans of Veronica Mars know of ongoing updates to the project. "We have the funds now to make a rockin' movie for you guys," she said, going on to call all those who pledged “the coolest group of fans anyone could ever hope to have. I've always known it, Rob's always known it, and now you guys proved it to the world."

Talking about the crowd funding project to Wired, Thomas commented "I’m not convinced that this will revolutionize how most movies get made, but I think there’s an opportunity now for projects that are similar to ours – that have some bit of public support behind it before they launch on Kickstarter… For something like Veronica Mars, where there’s a bit of a cult following and people are really emotionally invested in it, I do think this is a new avenue. There is no other way that this movie was going to get made.”
