For 2 million, not a lot of people on any level are going to be getting paid for this project.

TemporalFlux should we get Tracy Torme to try this with Sliders and its original cast?

Excuse me. I need to change my pants.

Fuck the FBI thing, that's lame. I think it should deal with Veronica's mom being found dead and Logan is to blame, or something equally as weird.

This is very obviously a labor of love from Rob Thomas and the cast. If the pilot of Lost could be filmed for around $10m, I have no doubt a two hour Veronica Mars movie can be done for significantly less considering there are no special effects, intricate sets like a crashed plane on a beach or an expensive cast.

I was thinking about Sliders when I saw this; it had a similar situation where co-creator Bob Weiss had a movie together that had very promising studio talks back in 2001 (so much that Jerry O'Connell was openly talking to the media about it), but it fell apart due to budget disagreements. Of course, Veronica Mars was more recent (that movie being talked up...6 years ago?); but I honestly didn't think Mars was on anyone's heat map either, and look what just happened.

Yes! Bring back Sliders!

Maybe we can get a decent TNG movie too!

C'mon JMS, lets see the end of Crusade.

I knew as soon as I heard about this it would be can open, worms everywhere. Projects will start springing up all over the place with all this 'pseudo-funding'.

Not entirely sure what can of worms you're referring to.

I hate Babylon 5 with the fire of a thousand suns but if a movie that wrapped that series up was made from Kickstarter funds, I'd be happy for fans of that show. It's not like it pulls any money from my pocket or was going to get made without the funding so what's wrong with people pitching money into something they're fans of? Yeah, there's the inherent risk the movie might suck but I'd be much less concerned about that with the showrunner and cast on board.

And most will Fall on their ass. Buffy might do it if they tried. A few other dearly loved franchises, but that's it.
I doubt any Blockbuster could ever be funded that way.

A VM movie would be pretty cheap to do, unlike any kind of Sci-Fi movie.

Sorry, ENT fans.

I still can't believe it's finally gonna happen. How cool is that? $2million in ten hours? Well done fellow awesome fans!

I don't get the naysayers. What slippery slope exactly? The one where deserving projects with dedicated fans get to happen? Uhh...yes please, I'll slide down that slope!

Crazy how this got funded so quickly. I know that Shawn Ryan is now thinking about a Terriers movie.

Babylon 5 doesn't need wrapping up, it tied its loose ends off quite handily during its run. In fact, it did it a bit too well---which is part of the problem they've run into trying to get any spinoffs going.

Also, there's no good reason to hate it. Indifference, maybe, but what could possibly be so offensive about one of the better 90s SF shows?
