Filmmakers Seek Kickstarter Funding for ‘Arrested Development’ Movie

kickstarter, arrested development, foxIn the wake of the Veronica Mars movie’s dramatic success on Kickstarter last week, filmmakers are trying to raise $20,000 on the crowdfunding site to release an “Arrested Development” movie.

Well, by filmmakers, we mean die-hard fans Jeff Smith and Neil Lieberman. And by movie, we mean a documentary about the making and reception of the cult-hit series “Arrested Development.”

The film has already been made; the fundraising project seeks to buy rights to use photos from the show from Fox. You’d think the studio would see the whole film as marketing for its show, but copyright’s a bitch.

The project launched Monday and has raised $7,836 from 225 backers, falling well short of the dramatic $1 million raised for the Veronica Mars in just a day.
