Daphne and Velma

Jinkies, here’s a strange idea: a live-action prequel story about how Scooby-Doo‘s Daphne and Velma became friends. Sure, why not? A new Daphne and Velma movie will focus on the female members of Mystery, Inc. when they were still teens, before they teamed up with a talking dog, a boring square, and a squeaky-voiced fellow with the munchies.

It’s been four years since the knife-wielding serial slasher, who’s been voiced by The Lord of the Rings and Deadwood actor Brad Dourif in all six Chucky movies so far, appeared in Curse of Chucky. But now he’s back in another new direct-to-video horror film from director Don Mancini, who’s helmed the three most recent entries.

VERONICA MARS UltraViolet

Almost 100,000 fans spent over $5.7 million to back a movie sequel to the cult television series Veronica Mars. Backers who spent $35 were promised “a digital version of the movie within a few days of the movie’s theatrical debut” in addition to a t-shirt and some other extras. The movie was released both theatrically and on video on demand this weekend, but a percentage of the crowdfunded film’s backers were left dissatisfied with the movie’s digital download. Why? The Veronica Mars UltraViolet release frustrated a number of kickstarter backers.

Warner Bros Digital distributed the movie through Flixster, which is (among other things) an app front-end for the UltraViolet movie service. There were multiple reports of fans who found themselves frustrated, unable to access their digital copy of the film promised by the kickstarter. Warner Bros. will be issuing refunds to supporters who have been unable to access their copy of the film.
