Veronica Mars breaks Kickstarter record

Veronica Mars is kicking it on Kickstarter.

The TV show about a crime-solving California teen looks like it is destined to be made into a movie after fans contributed US$1.3 million (NZ$1.5 million) and counting on the crowd-funding site today.

That makes the project the fastest yet to reach US$1 million on Kickstarter – in 4 hours, 24 minutes – and the most-funded film or video project to date, according to a site spokesman.

The show starring Kristen Bell was cancelled after three seasons in 2007, but has since gained a cult following on Netflix. Its goal is to raise US$2 million in 30 days for a summer shoot.

Show creator Rob Thomas says if the funding goal is reached, the movie will hit theaters in early 2014.
