Multi-millionaires Ron Howard and Brian Grazer planning to crowdfund Friday Night Lights movie

lightsFor a few months now, the words 'crowdfunding' and 'Kickstarter' have been on the lips of producers and studio executives all over Hollywood.

The tremendous success of the "Veronica Mars' movie on the crowd-funding platform has seemingly opened the way to all kinds of other projects, most notably Zach Braff and his second feature "Wish I Was Here." But we've always been a little worried that it could be a double-edged sword; that executives would stop rolling the dice on risky projects and simply go straight to the fans to root through their wallets.

And lo, it came to pass. Deadline reports that Ron Howard (estimated net worth: $140 million) and Brian Grazer (estimated net worth: $100 million) were in Cannes to introduce their slate for their company Imagine Entertainment, and among the news is that the duo are planning to use crowdfunding to raise money for the movie version of the TV series "Friday Night Lights" that's been talked about for some time.
