You Can Help Make a ‘Veronica Mars’ Movie Happen (If You Care About That Sort of Thing)
Here’s a little behind-the-scenes look at how things work at BlackBook: I saw online that Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas (not the dude from Matchbox Twenty, as I just learned) and the show’s star Kristen Bell launched a Kickstarter campaign that is hoping to raise two million dollars to make a movie based on the series, which was cancelled after three seasons in 2007. I never watched that show, despite the intentions of many of my friends to get me to watch it, because the concept sounded preposterous. (I say that having willingly watched the entire first season of Smash.) I turned to both of my coworkers and said, "Hey, did either of you watch Veronica Mars?" Both of them stared back, blankly, and said no. "Oh, hm," I replied, thinking, "Perhaps someone with the knowledge of this show should write a post about it." And then I realized that writing blog posts about entertainment news requires very little skill and knowledge! So, basically, here is the Kickstarter campaign for the Veronica Mars movie.
