Fans of TV series "Veronica Mars" have a chance to invest in the movie version, to star actress Kristen Bell, of course.

Rob Thomas, creator of Veronica Mars, launched a Kickstarter page to get funding for the movie. The project needs $2 million pledged to have the chance to be made.

"Here it is. Our one shot to see a Veronica Mars movie happen. Kristen is in. I'm in. Let's do it!," wrote Thomas on the Kickstarter page. "Almost since Veronica Mars went off the air, there's been talk of making a movie. In that span, I've taken different tactics in dealing with the question of whether it might happen. To be clear, I've always wanted to make a Veronica Mars movie. I love writing these characters and working with these actors. Kristen Bell has always wanted to make the movie."

Here's a message from Bell:

dearest marshmallows...

I am currently the happiest blonde in a hamster ball the world has ever seen. We have been waiting so long to make this movie dream a movie reality, and it's because of YOUR commitment, YOUR persistence, that we finally have a chance. We just have one more step to go.

You have banded together like the sassy little honey badgers you are and made this possibility happen. i promise if we hit our goal, we will make the sleuthiest, snarkiest, it's-all-fun-and-games-'til-one-of-you-gets-my-foot-up-your-ass movie we possibly can.

I promise to give it my all. i promise to work my hardest to give everyone a little bit more Veronica, and i will be oh so honored to do so.

I only ask for one thing in return.

If I ever die, do me a favor. Go on Oprah and tell the world that I loved kittens.

LoVe to you ALL,

kristen bell"
