'Veronica Mars' movie update
Thought Rob Thomas’s efforts to fund a Veronica Mars movie would end when his project hit the $2 million mark — less than 11 hours after its Kickstarter launched? Think again.
As Thomas told tens of thousands of backers via email this morning, he’s not planning to pull the plug on his fund drive anytime soon. What’s more, Thomas and his team are working to allow fans from outside the United States to donate, which would significantly increase the project’s potential revenue. Though all of the Kickstarter’s big-ticket rewards — the chance to name a character in the movie, snag a screening for 50 friends, or even appear onscreen in a speaking role — have been snatched up already, Thomas also said that he’s planning to come up with more high-end “thank you” gifts in the coming days.
Check out Thomas’s full email below. For the record, as of 9:30 a.m. ET, the Kickstarter campaign has raised over $2.5 million.
