That Veronica Mars movie you thought would never come has edged closer to becoming a reality. Veronica Mars star Kristen Bell and series creator Rob Thomas launched a campaign on Kickstarter to raise $2 million in order to make a movie based on the show. And in less than one day, the entire amount was raised and the movie is almost a sure thing at this point. Thomas promises to bring back all of your favorite characters, and they’re targeting a summer shoot.
Says Thomas, “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.”
As of the second I’m typing this, The Veronica Mars Movie Campaign on Kickstarter has $2,647,246 in pledges. Make that $2,652,500. And now it’s $2,653,065. Oh, never mind.

And Kristen posted this message for Veronica Mars fans:
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. We just have one more step to go.
You have banded together like the sassy little honey badgers you are and made this possibility happen. i promise if we hit our goal, we will make the sleuthiest, snarkiest, it’s-all-fun-and-games-‘til-one-of-you-gets-my-foot-up-your-ass movie we possibly can.
I promise to give it my all. i promise to work my hardest to give everyone a little bit more Veronica, and i will be oh so honored to do so.
I only ask for one thing in return.
If I ever die, do me a favor. Go on Oprah and tell the world that I loved kittens.
LoVe to you ALL,
