EW Inside Movies:
Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas has sent the film’s Kickstarter backers a lengthy status update. Top news: He has just finished a first draft of the movie. “There’s a lot of work left to do, but it’s a movie I can’t wait to make. I think it’s also the movie you’ve been waiting to see,” he writes.
With one week left in the Kickstarter campaign that has raised more than $4.5 million, Thomas took the opportunity to encourage more fans to donate: The only Kickstarter record the project hasn’t yet broken is the total number of backers (Veronica Mars was approaching 70,000 as we typed this; Double Fine Adventure had 87,142).
