Tomorrow, August 6th, will be a big day for the #VAFamily! An IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign is going to be launched in order to get Frostbite!
The producers behind the first film are this week launching an IndieGoGo campaign to raise money for “Frostbite: A Vampire Academy Film.” If fans contribute $1.5 million, the financial backers will be convinced that there’s enough fan demand for the movie and fund the rest of the production cost.
A message from OVAM, the official VA producers:
Let’s show some support and leave some comments on the MTV article! #SupportFrostbiteOnIndiegogo

We also learnt some infos, Frostbite would have a new screenwriter:
“The fans mean everything to us,” he said in an email to MTV News. “We decided to move forward with ‘Frostbite’ because of the fans, and we want to give them the purest book to film adaptation possible. We have a script by Piers Ashworth [screenwriter of “St. Trinian’s”] that does just that. We want to give them exactly what they expect.”
– Producer Mike Preger
Plus, a possible release date:
If the goal is met, pre-production will begin late this year, the film will shoot in early 2015, and the finished product will hit theaters in late 2015.
