‘Veronica Mars’ project breaks Kickstarter record

A win for ‘Veronica Mars’

“Veronica Mars’’ kicked it on Kickstarter. The TV show that ended in 2007 and starred Kristen Bell as a crime-solving California teen looks like it’s destined to be made into a movie after more than 30,000 fans hit a fund-raising goal of $2 million within hours on Wednesday. The project reached the $1 million mark on Kickstarter in record time: 4 hours, 24 minutes. Series creator Rob Thomas, who launched the fund-raiser, said ‘‘Veronica Mars’’ owner Warner Bros. has given the project its blessing, and Bell and other cast members are ready to begin production this summer for a 2014 release.
