Karen Gillan’s Movie Project Needs a ‘Happy Ending’

by on June 18, 2012

How many times have you watched a movie and wondered how it got made?  Here’s an opportunity to contribute toward making a movie a reality: Karen Gillan, Amy Pond herself, is starring in the film “Not Another Happy Ending,” and there are just under two days left to contribute via IndieAGoGo to make it a reality.

In the romantic comedy, Gillan plays a writer trying to finish a book project while battling writer’s block caused by her feelings for her publisher, whose business will fail unless he can publish Jane’s book and who, in turn is trying to break Jane of her writer’s block by making her miserable while battling his own attraction to her.

Personally, I would love to see Karen in this role; We know she has a great comedic flair from her work on Doctor Who, and it would be great to see a well-written and well-acted romantic comedy. (And there’s no such thing as too much Karen Gillan)  Go here to find out more and donate, but you have to act fast: The project closes on Tuesday, June 19th at 11:59p Pacific. The donation bonuses range from a thank-you digital postcard for $10 to an iPhone skin for $30, a laptop or iPad skin for $65, an autographed photo of Karen for $70, a signed poster for $100, a tour of Glasgow and tea with the director (airfare not included) for $200, and more, all the way to either getting a contributor credit in the finished product or one of Karen Gillan’s outfits from the movie for a $1,000 donation.
