As a huge fan of the television show Veronica Mars, I couldn’t be more excited about the success of “The Veronica Mars Movie Project” on Kickstarter. Creator Rob Thomas and much of the original cast is back to make the VM movie a reality, and Thomas has even revealed a bit of the plot. There’s still time to donate if you haven’t already, but at nearly $4 million the movie is definitely happening.
The success of the VM movie (the largest Kickstarter ever) has many people wondering about the future of the film and television industry, including what cancelled shows might be resurrected next. The first show that came to my mind was Firefly, but Joss Whedon has already weighed in, saying that’s it’s not in the cards, at least not for the next few years, because he’s too busy making movies for Marvel (a great excuse, in my opinion). But maybe after he’s done with that… I, for one, would definitely support a Kickstarter for another Firefly movie.
If you’ve never seen Veronica Mars, you can watch all three season online for free. It’s an excellent mystery series, and I highly recommend it.
