According to TVByTheNumbers, Chuck fans have begun pledging money to fund a Chuck feature film!  So far over $22 thousand has been pledged and though that is definetely not enough, its at least a start!

The problem with this is that it is not on a proper kickstarter system so people can pledge any amount of money they want to inflate the total and later back out, unlike with a kickstarter that takes your financial info and can properly bill you when the time comes.  The system these guys are using simply takes your email address down and that is all.

This reminds me of when the Browncoats (fans of Joss Whedon’s Firefly) tried this to raise money to buy the rights to Firefly outright from FOX, which some say would cost around $30 million or more.  People began pledging absurd amounts and the actual number of real dollars pledged was very off.  Hopefully people don’t abuse this system.
