‘Veronica Mars’ Just Changed the Movie Business


In less than twelve hours, Warner Bros., Rob Thomas, Kristen Bell, and their Veronica Mars movie changed the movie business. Yesterday morning, Thomas and his cast asked fans to donate two million dollars to revive the canceled television series Veronica Mars as a feature film. Fans have hoped for such a movie for several years. Thomas and Bell had previously been unsuccessful in attempts to persuade Warner Bros. to fund the movie. They even talked about paying for it themselves.

/Film examines the ramifications that this Kickstarter might have on the movie industry as it shows that not only is there an audience for the movie but that fans are even prepared to pay a small amount to make sure it happens.

Before you even think about it, Joss Whedon has already made his opinion pretty clear about any possible Firefly project during an AMA last year.
