Over the past couple of years we’ve seen film turn to Kickstarter to help with financing the film, with varying results and lots of people coming under fire for turning to crowd sourcing. The Veronica Mars movie however saw such a huge success that it far surpassed it’s target and raised more money than any other project on Kickstarter, over $2 million in ten hours. The director Rob Thomas said “I was totally taken off guard by the amount of international support we received during out Kickstarter drive. A movie of this scope wouldn’t have been possible without our international fans. I’m incredibly excited that fans around the world will be able to see the movie on the same day that it’s released here in the U.S.”
The feature length will see Kristin Bell reprise her role as Veronica Mars as she returns back to her home town and investigating to help her ex boyfriend who has been caught up in a murder trial.
