Blue Like Jazz Movie Saved By Kickstarter Campaign
For a while, it was looking like the movie adaptation of Donald Miller’s Blue Like Jazz, one of our 20 Best Books of the Decade, would never see the light of day.
However, the flick is now slated for a fall 2011 release, thanks to a huge Kickstarter campaign. Over 2,000 donors helped raise $155,000 to fund the project.
If the movie can surpass $200,641 in donations by the time the campaign closes on Oct. 25, it will become the largest crowdfunded film in history. To watch some “thank you” videos or to make a donation, check out the “Save Blue Like Jazz” website.
