There are only a few more days left on the Veronica Mars Kickstarter clock, but we already know this project has moved WAY faster than expected!
The campaign has now officially raised over $4.8 million thanks to its 73,000 backers, and creator Rob Thomas has already completed the first draft of the movie! But given the work still left to be done, Rob took to the Kickstarter page to update Marshmallows on how the extra money raised will be spent.
He explained that the original $2 million goal was the minimum amount they needed to get the film made, “but it was never going to let us make the exact movie we really wanted to make, or the one we know you deserve.”
“Everything you’ve pledged beyond the initial $2 million gives us more options, and for that I’m eternally grateful. More backing means more locations, more sets, more actors, and most important of all, more shooting days. The bottom line? That extra support will give us the freedom to make the best movie possible.”
The extra funds could also mean extra minutes on camera!
“That additional money could mean the difference between a movie that lasts 90 minutes, and one that lasts 110. It could also mean the difference between us shooting in Southern California, where the series was shot, and in a less expensive location somewhere else."
Not to mention the added shipping costs for your Marshmallow rewards! Sounds like Rob knows what he’s talking about!
Stay tuned for more announcement and goodies as promised by Rob! The next few months are bound to be eventful!
