With all the Veronica Mars hoopla and people speculating about what the next big crowd-funded property will be, we thought we’d pitch 10 sure-fire bets for the powers that be. Hit the jump and view the full list.
The Pitch: Whatever happened to live action kids movies that were way too adult for kids? Eerie Indiana was a great show that could bring back the creepy live action kids movie and it's just nostalgic enough that my generation would go see it.
The Pitch: Having just been cancelled, HBO's Enlightened is in a perfect position to get a crowd-funded movie. Though the series ended on a high note, two seasons just isn't enough to explore this funny/sad world Mike White has crafted.
Salute Your Shorts
The Pitch: Whatever happened to the summer camp movie? Here's a great way to bring it back in a big way. Have a new cast filling the roles but get some of the original actors back to play counselors, they probably aren't too busy. Also, have it set during the nineties when the show took place and don't forget to include the awful waffle.
The Pitch: There were rumblings of a movie version of this short-lived HBO show for a while, but they fizzled out. Time to bring it back and give fans the proper ending they deserve.
Parker Lewis Can't Lose
The Pitch: A teen comedy set in the 90s. It's going to happen eventually so let's go all out and bring Parker and his friends to the big screen.
The Pitch: With a fanbase certainly more rabid than Veronica Mars, this is the most likely show on this list to actually come to fruition. No actual pitch needed, the Whedon fans will make this happen.
Freaks and Geeks
The Pitch: It might be tough to bring this massive cast together, but if anyone can do it Apatow can. The film would probably have to take place years after the show in order to account for everyone's age, but it might be cool to see where these characters are as adults.
The Pitch: Again this might be difficult given the amount of time since the show was cancelled, but why not pass Claire Danes and Jared Leto off as highschoolers? That could work right?
My So-Called Life
The Pitch: Yes, I know there's been two previous X-Files movies, but here's the difference with this idea. You make it good.
Bill Nye The Science Guy
The Pitch: Now hear me out: Make a science-related documentary aimed for kids and families that is both educational and entertaining. Move over Disney Nature, Bill Nye is here to teach us "Science Rules!"
