Despite the cancellation of the television series Veronica Mars starring Kristen Bell, a Kickstarter page was set up to raise money to turn the show into a movie.
Show creator Rob Thomas created the Kickstarter page on March 13. The goal was to reach $2 million in fan donations, which was accomplished in less than 10 hours. If the goal is reached it will be the largest Kickstarter-funded project of all time, according to USA Today.
Thomas wrote on the page that he and Bell has always wanted to make a Veronica Mars movie.
Thomas also wrote that they need Warner Bros. to be on board since they own the rights to the show. He wrote that he and Bell met with Warner Bros. and they agreed to let them put up a Kickstarter page. So far, it seems promising.
"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," he wrote.
Bell wrote in the page, "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."
As of March 14, the page reached over $2.6 million in donations.
