Chad Johnson's Overtown Movie Adds Walking Dead, True Blood Actors, Launches Kickstarter

Movie magic can be expensive, and even big time directors find themselves strapped for cash when filming a movie.

That is the beauty of crowdfunding: ask the fans who would see the flick to help pay for it. If Veronica Mars can raise over $5 million in 30 days, maybe Cess Silvera's Overtown -- AKA Chad Johnson's movie project -- can reach its $200,000 goal by mid-November.
