The “Veronica Mars” Movie Might Actually Happen, Thanks To Kickstarter Campaign

Creator Rob Thomas (this one, not that one) took to Kickstarter Wednesday, meeting his $2 million goal within hours.

1. “Veronica Mars,” the mid-2000s teen detective show, is finally becoming a movie.

2. A Mars movie has been rumored FOREVER.

3. The series was cancelled at the end of its third season in 2007, but the finale didn’t feel very final.

4. Despite fan/cast/crew/world enthusiasm for one last goodbye, Warner Brothers never got on board with the idea of a feature film.

As Thomas puts it, “Warner Bros. wasn’t convinced there was enough interest to warrant a major studio-sized movie about Veronica and the project never got off the ground.”

5. Still, fans held out hope.

6. And now, thanks to a booming Kickstarter campaign, it looks like the movie will be filmed this summer for a 2014 release.

7. Just before 9 p.m. Eastern time, the campaign met its fundraising goal of $2 million.

Full disclosure: Some of us at BuzzFeed have happily contributed.
