I don’t know about you, but I really enjoyed the UPN television show “Veronica Mars” – starring Kristen Bell – that ceased production in 2005.

The New York Daily News reports that the show’s creator Rob Thomas and Kristen Bell began a “Kickstarter” campaign to raise funds for a movie and her fans have responded:

“The “Veronica Mars” movie is coming to a theater near you in 2014!

“In just 10 hours, scores of fans of the hit television show starring Kristen Bell rallied to raise more than $2.5 million to help fund a movie version.

“The Kickstarter campaign, started by show creator Rob Thomas and Bell, was an unprecedented online effort through fundraising website Kickstarter.com. Many people use Kickstarter to ask family and friends for help raising money for projects, but never before has a Hollywood entity invited fans to contribute to the making of such a large scale production.”
