64-episode, 3-season gem of a show from 2004-07... has had 'We want to do a movie' follow them along ever since cancelation... and now, it's going to happen. Kickstarter campaign... they need $2 million in 30 days... they're more than halfway to goal in under six hours. This is awesome news.

Were I wealthier person, I'd be in for $200, as a signed-by-Rob-and-eight-or-so-cast-members movie poster would be fun to have, but, um, NOT being particularly affluent... I'm in for $50 (along with 3,687 others at the time of this writing...). I have to have a dvd, and while, sure, there will eventually be a non-kickstarter release I could obtain much more cheaply, hopefully this would have exclusive extras... (and hey, a t-shirt, and pdf of the script...)

I've contributed to 24 other kickstarter projects in the last few years (mostly comics and art books, but a few films - Lynch 3; I Am Big Bird; Catherine Dent's short film, Silk; Phil Tippett's Mad God; Charlie Kaufman's Anomalisa) and three indiegogo projects (but two of those were by personal friends...). I like the crowdfunding model a lot. But this is just super-exciting... I love when long-thought-dead things come back to life. Fox canceling Family Guy (twice) and dvd sales forcing a remount, and its success ever since... Joss getting to make Serenity... Futurama came back... Netflix putting Arrested Development back together again...

We're getting a Veronica Mars movie.

Yay!

I'm hoping for the High School reunion scenario not the FBI plan for S4....

It'll be in Neptune and probably won't involve any of the Season 4 plan, but if Rob loved that FBI idea enough, I suppose Veronica could have been an agent IN the last ten years...

Shawn Ryan tweets "Very interested to see how this Veronica Mars kickstarter goes. Could be a model for a Terriers wrap up film."

I'd love that, too (but will settle for a Terriers dvd, still think it's a rotten shame there isn't one...).

I think the episodes are available through Amazon, but I much prefer physical media...

Very cool. I like that there are 'big pockets' guys that believe in making cool things happen, and aren't exclusively my-money-has-to-make-MORE-money-for-me.

The inevitable criticism - http://www.theatlanticwire.com/entertai ... -it/63060/

Fun thing I noticed - one of the five projects that Rob Thomas has backed is also 'one of mine', the children's book 'Erf' by Garth Ennis (a comic book writer I like and met a few times at Comic-Con) and Rob Steen (who illustrates Ricky Gervais' Flanimals books). My name is on a 'Special thanks' page in the back, and I'm enjoying reading it to various classes I sub for... http://www.amazon.com/Erf-Garth-Ennis/d ... ywords=Erf
