For years there has been speculation about whether or not a movie of the brilliant teen detective show Veronica Mar will ever get made, with issues surrounding financial and studio backing. But know thanks to a brilliant idea, the film has got high hopes of being made. The film will be funded by fan donations, from everything between $1 to $10000 can be pledged to help raise the goal of $2,000,000 for the film to go a head. Their are different packages up for offer depending on how much you pledge, including signed merchandise DVD copy of the film and TV series and at the higher end of the scale includes walk on roles and speaking roles in the film.
I love the series and was gutted when they cancelled it but i am so happy with the fact that its getting chance to be made into the film. At last glance the pot was up to $700,000 with 30 days to go and hopefully they will reach the goal for it to be made.
If you never watched the series before check it out, it stars Kristen Bell as Veronica Mars as private investigator working in her high school and then college as she works to solve various mysteries. The TV show also stars Jason Dohring, Ryan Hansen, Enrico Colantoni, Percy Daggs III and Francis Capra. The series was created by Rob Thomas who is behind the idea to get the fans behind the project.
I really hope that the project gets enough money to get the film made.

Its getting closer and closer to the new Iron Man film to be released, only 51 days to go!!!
Who else is excited, i am especially after the release of the new trailer, which looks awesome!!!
Tony Stark's private life is under attack this time around and is up against his most powerful enemy who will do what ever it takes to destroy him. The Mandarin played by Ben Kingsley is still a bit of a mystery as to where he came from and why he is set to destroy Tony's life, but what we do know is that he is part of a terrorist organization set out to destroy the world. A lot of the story line is still under wraps but after the attempts to destroy his life Tony sets out to defeat his enemy with only himself to count on to find his way back and protect the ones closets he loves.
The trailer looks awesome with footage that hasn't been seen yet and scenes like his mansion getting blown up expanded to see the real damage makes me excited to see the film, especially with the multiple Suits and the fact that we see other people getting fitted out for suits, with the idea of creating an army. But also when we see Tony getting questioned by reporters about how he is going to fix things shows how they just expect him to solve everything. But leading Tony to discover the answer to the question "Does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?"
Robert Downey Jr is a brilliant actor and i am so glad he is back as Tony Stark with Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle and Jon Favreau reprising their roles and the additions to the cast with Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak and James Badge Dale completing the main cast. This time around though the director has changed with Jon Favreau stepping back to make way for Shane Black.
After the Avengers i was excited to see where the story was going to go and is it going to start the build up in the story to the next Avengers film. I am also hoping that we might get to see bits and pieces of the other cast members from the Avengers making cameos, fingers crossed!!
With rumors of this being the last Iron Man circling (i hope its not) i have high hopes for this film being brilliant and I can not wait for it to be released on the 26th April!!!
