Latest Video: FilmCrunch 067: Hairspray, Chuck & Larry, Premonition reviewed
Veronica Mars may have been cancelled six years ago, but fans are still just as ardent as ever to see a continuation of the UPN/CW series.
Series creator Rob Thomas took to the popular online fundraising site Kickstarter to generate interest and funds in seeing a big screen sequel to the show, which starred Kristen Bell as the title character.
"A two million dollar fundraising total probably means cross words are exchanged at the class reunion. Three million? We can afford a full-on brawl. Ten million? Who knows... For some reason the Neptune High class reunion takes place on a nuclear submarine! A Hobbit shows up! There’s a Bollywood end-credit dance number! I’ve always wanted to direct Bill Murray. We’ll figure out something cool. Hey, if that total goes high enough, I’ll bet the good folks at Warner Bros. will agree a sequel is a good idea," Thomas wrote on the project's Kickstarter page.
Miraculously, fans pulled through, raising over $2.8 million in less than 12 hours.

Kim Kardashian insists reality TV is still her "number one priority."
The 32-year-old star - who is pregnant with her first child with rapper Kanye West - has announced she will continue to film the E! series Keeping Up With The Kardashians until "at least season 10," despite recently hinting that she wants to live a more private life once their baby arrives in July.

The show remains to be my number one priority and it's a big part of my life and I enjoy every moment of it. It has given me such a rare opportunity to share more of my life with all of you and has brought my family closer to each other. I'm looking forward to the new season and beyond. The fact is that I have many goals that I still need to reach and accomplish and I (like so many of you) don't know where my life will be in the next couple of years, but I'm looking forward to continuing this journey."

Jack White has hit out at reality TV shows. The former White Stripes frontman has criticized people who appear on talent shows insisting they are only interested in instant fame and he claims the format dilutes the work of credible artists.
In an interview with the new issue of Britain's Esquire magazine, he said, "The goal of modern celebrity is to make yourself into the lowest common denominator, 'Hey, I'm a guy just like you. I like beer, a football game.' Especially in reality television, you'll see what people will go so far as to make a fool out of themselves just to prove that."
The 37-year-old musician went on to criticize Oscar-winning director Clint Eastwood, 82, who recently appeared on E! fly-on-the-wall series, Mrs. Eastwood & Company with his wife Dina: "I don't want to see a reality show about Michelangelo. You know, Clint Eastwood is doing one with his family and it's such a disappointment. There's no reason to put yourself in a position that makes things completely un-special."
Angus T. Jones is "grateful for the extraordinary opportunity" to star in Two And A Half Men.
The 19-year-old actor - who recently filmed a video urging people not to watch the show because it goes against his religious beliefs - released a statement to apologise to the cast and crew if he offended them.
"I have been the subject of much discussion, speculation and commentary over the past 24 hours. While I cannot address everything that has been said or right every misstatement or misunderstanding, there is one thing I want to make clear. Without qualification, I am grateful to and have the highest regard and respect for all of the wonderful people on Two and Half Men with whom I have worked and over the past ten years who have become an extension of my family. Chuck Lorre, Peter Roth and many others at Warner Bros. and CBS are responsible for what has been one of the most significant experiences in my life to date. I thank them for the opportunity they have given and continue to give me and the help and guidance I have and expect to continue to receive from them.
