After a super-successful Kickstarter campaign, a “Veronica Mars” movie is finally heading into production, and one of the series’ stars, Chris Lowell, promises that however it manifests on screen, it won’t disappoint fans still loyal years after the show wrapped production in 2007.
“I think [show creator] Rob [Thomas is] gonna give the fans exactly the movie that they have paid for, literally,” Chris told Hollywood Crush earlier this week. Mere hours after the Kickstarter campaign was launched back in March, it amassed $2 million and has since raised over $5.7 million. The movie adaptation of the cult-loved TV series is slated to begin production this summer.
“I think we were all really shocked,” Chris said. “I remember talking to Kristen [Bell] and Rob the night before they launched it and them being like, ‘I hope this… this could be a massive embarrassment.’ And then, to get a call 10 hours later from launch being like, ‘We funded it,’ was crazy. You know what I mean? So I’m really looking forward to it.”
In the years since bidding the show goodbye, Chris has appeared in lots of other stuff and will headline his forthcoming, sibling-themed Fox sitcom, “Enlisted,” but he says he had no hesitations about doing the “Veronica Mars” movie.
“Not at all, no not at all. I’m so excited to work with those guys again,” he gushed.
