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.

Chace Crawford will miss his "therapists" when Gossip Girl ends. The 27-year-old actor is sad to be saying goodbye to the rest of the cast and crew on the show when the season ends, and will be particularly unhappy to lose his hair and make-up team as they had become his confidantes as he spent so much time with them.
"I saw them for, like, an hour everyday. I talked to them about my life problems. Some were like a therapist. I'm gonna miss those girls," he said.
Although the show hasn't yet finished filming its final season, Chace already knows what he wants to take away from the set as a memento of his time on the hit drama series: "I would take some of those suits my character wears if I could. I'm gonna try and steal some badass ashtrays, if I can fit them in my coat pocket."
And Chace thinks that five years playing Nate Archibald has made him lose his dignity because of the situations his character has been in. "I'm gonna look for my dignity. My dignity is somewhere on set. I think it happened around season two. Leading into season three, it was all out the window," he said.
Matthew Broderick will guest star on Modern Family.
The Tony Award-winning actor will join the comedy show as a "neurotic new friend" of regular character Phil Dunphy (played by Ty Burrell), ABC has confirmed. No other details of his character have been released.
Matthew's wife Sarah Jessica Parker will also appear on the small screen when she stars in the latest series of Glee. The former Sex and the City actress will be a "frazzled and eccentric" editor of an acclaimed fashion magazine's website when she makes her guest appearance in the musical drama and show bosses think she is "hilarious."
"Sarah Jessica Parker is gonna be running Vogue.com. That's sort of where we encounter this character, who's sort of frazzled, eccentric, hilarious. It's gonna be good," said the show's co-creator and executive producer Ian Brennan.
Alexa Chung is to appear in Gossip Girl.
The 28-year-old British presenter was seen on set in New York City yesterday (01.08.12) sporting full hair and make-up and wearing a blue and red dress for filming. However, it is unclear whether Alexa - who moved here in 2009 - is making a cameo role as herself or making her acting debut as no character details have been released at present. It is yet to be confirmed how many episodes the former model will appear in.
Gossip Girl launched in 2007, and it was recently revealed the forthcoming sixth season will be the last for the drama. Though most of the storyline details have been kept under wraps, it has been disclosed that Serena Van der Woodsen - played by Blake Lively - is to have an eventful series. "Serena has gone off the grid, beyond even the reach of Gossip Girl. Her friends fear for the worst and hope for the best, but even they can't imagine where they will ultimately find her," a spokesperson said.
Alexa follows in the footsteps of Elizabeth Hurley, who appeared in the fifth series of the show.
Joe Jonas has surprised his The Next co-stars with how famous he is.
The Jonas Brothers singer will star with Nelly, Gloria Estefan and country star John Rich in the reality TV show which will see them mentor rising stars of the music scene and Nelly admitted he had no idea how famous the Jonas Brothers were. "Joe Jonas, obviously I didn't know what I was embarking on with this kid here. He got little girls staying out two or three days in advance trying to get tickets to the show for this dude," Nelly told MTV News.
Nelly also revealed he is thrilled to be working with Gloria Estefan because he had no idea she would be so "cool." He added, "The thing about Gloria is she's cool, yo. I didn't know that she would really be that cool considering - not considering anything, you never wanna assume, but you just never know because you're hanging with people now on a daily basis and attitudes show eventually, but there hasn't been any."
With three new shows premiering this fall on the CW -- including Sarah Michelle Gellar's return to the small screen in Ringer -- the network is already getting fans on the edge of their couches by releasing the lineup. Check out when favorites Gossip Girl and Supernatural will return to your TV -- after the jump!

The girls of Hellcats got catty on Tuesday night’s episode “Fancy Dan.” As the title suggests, this installment marked the return of Dan Patch (Matt Barr), who’s been MIA since the “Think Twice Before You Go” episode that aired back in December.
Fans were reminded right away that Hellcats coach Vanessa Lodge (Sharon Leal) actually has a fiancé, though we can’t remember the last time we saw him. We also learned that he’s in the Army Reserves... and, he’s just been deployed. This new development violently shoved the date of their wedding into the very near future, and Vanessa was forced to confront her unresolved feelings for football coach Red Raymond (Jeff Hephner).
"I have enjoyed the past few years working on 90210 and adore all of the cast and crew, as well as the team at the CW and CBS TV Studios. I am grateful for having had the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful show." This statement was released by 90210’s most recently ousted cast member Lori Loughlin, who has been with the show since the series premiere.
And she's not the only casualty. High school teacher Ryan Matthews (played by Ryan Eggold) is also out of the picture, though he's sort of loosely related to Naomi Clarke (AnnaLynne McCord) now.
