About this link

From Wikipedia: Veronica Mars is an upcoming 2014 American neo-noir mystery comedy-drama film. Following the TV series' cancellation, Rob Thomas wrote a feature film script continuing the storyline, but Warner Bros. Pictures opted not to fund the project at the time. On March 13, 2013, Thomas and star Kristen Bell launched a fundraising campaign to produce the film through Kickstarter, offering various incentives to those who donated $10 or more. Bell, Thomas, Enrico Colantoni, Ryan Hansen, and Jason Dohring appeared in a video promoting the campaign, and it attained the $2 million goal in less than ten hours. In its first day on Kickstarter, the project broke the record as the fastest project to reach first $1 million, then $2 million; it also achieved the highest minimal pledging goal achieved and was the largest successful film project on Kickstarter. On its final campaign day, the project broke the record for the most backers on a single Kickstarter project, previously held by the Double Fine Adventure. Afterwards, the film earned a greenlight from Warner Bros. Digital Distribution. The Kickstarter campaign ended on April 13 with 91,585 donors raising $5,702,153.
