In just a few hours, The Veronica Mars Movie Project has raised $3,338,607 on Kickstarter, and 50,676 people are backing the project. Rob Thomas, the creator and producer of the Veronica Mars TV Series, announced on Wednesday morning that he had gotten the blessing of Warner Bros Studios.
Kristen Bell says :
“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. […] 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”
$ 10,000 for a three-word line
Now for the guy who has pledged $10,000 to the Veronica Mars movie project :
“You will get a speaking role in the movie. Here’s the scene — Veronica is eating with the man in her life. Things have gotten tense between them. You are the waiter/waitress. You approach the table, and you say, “Your check, sir.” We guarantee you will be on camera as you say the line. Unless you go all hammy and ruin the scene and we have to cut you out, but that would be a sad day for all of us. Just say the line. Don’t over-think it. You’re a waiter. Your motivation is to turn over the table. […] Think of yourself as Guy Fleegman from Galaxy Quest. People will surely want autographs.”
The production is planned to begin this summer for an early 2014 release. See also 130 Pictures Veronica Mars Gallery !
