So how is that 'Veronica Mars' movie going to be made, anyway?
So Rob Thomas’ Kickstarter plan to fund a Veronica Mars movie made that $2 million (and counting). How will the movie get made? TheWrap.com has all the answers.
After raking in somewhere in the neighborhood of $3 million on Kickstarter, the movie will be made, with Warner Bros. keeping its promise, the site says. The project’s budget will come solely from donations, but Warner Bros. Digital Distribution will pay for distribution and marketing.
And if you haven’t donated yet, there’s still time; The Kickstarter page is good for a month, and Thomas and Kirsten Bell plan to add some prizes to the drive in an attempt to grow the movie’s budget. They promised to have a brawl at the high school reunion if they reached $10 million, you know. And a hobbit.
TheWrap says the flick will be shot this summer and get a limited release in theaters in 2014. The real money likely will come in from video on demand sales. That leaves us with a question, though: If you’ve already paid through Kickstarter, will you have to pay again for admission to theaters or an access code or whatever? That seems kinda cheap to us.
