It’s finally happening bro beans.

The cast and crew of the college football TV show Blue Mountain State have acquired the rights and are currently raising money on to fund a movie based one of the greatest shows every created.

If you’re one of the many BMS faithful, it is definitely a dream come true.

The series was cancelled in 2012 by Spike after only three completed seasons. The fans were upset with the decision and petitioned for the show to be resurrected for a fourth season.

On April 8th, a video was posted on Youtube of Mountain Goats’ linebacker Thad Castle in an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, a video where Thad had cropped himself in and replaced the actual guest, announcing that there would a KickStarter campaign for the movie.

The video, originally appearing to be a late April fools joke, was confirmed to be absolutely real, and the KickStarter for the series began on April 15th.

The pledged goal is $1,500,000 by May 15th, and currently they are well past the halfway point for the goal.

Fans who donate to the KickStarter website will reportedly receive fabulous prizes for helping the cause, with a $10,000 donation resulting in an actual speaking role in the movie, as well as many other awesome prizes from the movie.

They even have a College Contest where students from the same school donate under the same school name, and the school with the most money raised will get a visit from the cast of the movie!

According to the show’s creators Chris “Romanski” Romano (who plays Sammy on the show) and Eric Falconer, the show’s audience continued to grow after its cancellation, via online distribution through Netflix and Hulu.

Falconer wrote on the KickStarter page to describe the situation with the movie and how he hopes to make the movie he knows the fans want to see,

“Making Blue Mountain State was one of the greatest experiences of my life. If you had fun watching it, believe me, we had just as much fun making it. When the show was canceled unexpectedly in 2012, after only three seasons on the air, I felt cheated. For you and for us. College is supposed to be four years. We needed four seasons to complete the show. Since the day of our cancellation, we’ve been trying to figure out a way to make a BMS movie. “We” being myself, my co-creator Romanski, and our amazing cast lead by Alan Ritchson, who played Thad Castle on the show.

First we tried to go the traditional route, but our studio wasn’t interested in making a BMS movie. They were too busy making Twilight. So we asked them if we could have the rights and go make a movie on our own. Surprisingly enough, it worked! After a lengthy process, we were given the rights and our studio’s blessing to make this movie.

Next we looked into finding private investors for the film. There was some interest, but unfortunately those investors didn’t share our vision for the movie and we ended up parting ways. Our goal is, and has always been, to make a movie that will satisfy our fans. Our fan base is fiercely loyal, and we couldn’t imagine making a movie that wouldn’t honor that.

So now here we are, on Kickstarter. We’re on our own. No studio backing us, and no distributor attached to the project. Some people might look at no studio and no distributor as a negative, but I see it as a positive. No studio and no distributor means we, as creatives, are free to make the biggest, craziest, most outrageous movie possible. We’re free to make the Blue Mountain State movie that we, and our fans, want to see.

I truly believe that with your support, we can make something special. Thank you for your interest in our project. I’ll see you at The Goat House.”

If the KickStarter is a success, the movie will reportedly begin shooting in Montreal this July/August, and aim for a release in spring of 2015.

I was actually didn’t believe the Youtube video the first time I saw it, because I thought it was some cruel April fools joke aimed at those who were waiting for a Blue Mountain State movie, something I thought was too good to be true.

Now that the KickStarter has officially started, I couldn’t be any more excited for the release of the movie. My only regret is that I will somehow have to be patient until next spring when it’s supposed to be released.

So get ready bromigos. Cause this is sure to be the greatest football movie ever made, and true fans will be first in line the day tickets go on sale.
