LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Veronica Mars” fans just bought themselves a big-screen version of the cult favorite TV series.

A crowd-sourcing campaign to raise $2 million for the project on the Kickstarter website hit its goal in less than a day.

“Veronica Mars” creator Rob Thomas started the effort Wednesday with help from series star Kristen Bell.

More than 33,000 contributors had pledged $2.1 million and counting as of Wednesday evening.

In his online pitch, Thomas promised that, as he put it, “The more money we raise, the cooler movie we can make.”
