Veronica Mars Kickstarter Now Closed

The Kickstarter campaign to fund the “Veronica Mars” movie has now come to a close with creator Rob Thomas and actress Kristen Bell scoring a total of $5.7 million from 91,585 backers – almost three times their original goal.

The film broke several Kickstarter records – including fastest project to reach $2 million, all-time highest-funded project in the film category, the third highest-funded project in Kickstarter history, and the most project backers of any project in Kickstarter history.

The film is on track to film this Summer and score distribution through Warner Bros. Digital. A Comic Con panel for the project is also expected to take place in July.
