Veronica Mars Kickstarter Is Fully Funded In Under Nine Hours - But It's Not Over Yet

veronica mars season 3 castThe Veronica Mars movie Kickstarter has crossed the all-important $2 million threshold in… about ten hours. Records have been set.

Aside from how quickly it was done, just achieving this goal in any case means that the film is set for production in one month from now. Crikey.  It almost feels like a dream. The story doesn’t usually go this way at all.

I guess Kickstarter really has rewritten the rule book.

I think you should know, and you likely do already, that there’s no ceiling to the fund. The money can keep pouring in. They could end up with very significant overflow here.

Here’s what Rob Thomas had to say about any overages on the original appeal page:

Keep in mind that the more money we raise, the cooler movie we can make. A two million dollar fundraising total probably means cross words are exchanged at the class reunion. Three million? We can afford a full-on brawl. Ten million? Who knows… For some reason the Neptune High class reunion takes place on a nuclear submarine! A Hobbit shows up! There’s a Bollywood end-credit dance number! I’ve always wanted to direct Bill Murray. We’ll figure out something cool. Hey, if that total goes high enough, I’ll bet the good folks at Warner Bros. will agree a sequel is a good idea.

A sequel? Singular? I think he might have to rethink this. A Veronica Mars trilogy, perhaps.

The top-tier reward offered for pledges was a speaking role in the film, awarded in return for a $10,000 donation. This was taken by Steven Dengler, founder of XE and the man who funded several Double Fine video games.

He Tweeted, nonchalantly:

So I guess I get a speaking role in the Veronica Mars movie by @RobThomas. That’s cool.

Yes. It is.

And so will be my T-shirt, Blu-ray copy and all that other stuff too. Looking forward to them all already. More than I’ve ever looked forward to any other t-shirt.

Okay, so… mission accomplished. Your move, Mr. Whedon.
