VIDEO: American adaptation of Boys Over Flowers restarts fundraising campaigns
The planned American adaptation of Boys Over Flowers, titled Boys Before Friends, recently started Kickstarter and Indiegogo fundraising campaigns. Each have the goal of raising $150,000, and is accompanied by a promotional video. The adaptation first came to light when a Kickstarter campaign was launched back in July with the goal of raising $100,000.
Although that campaign failed to reach its goal, the producers later said: "We went on Kickstarter to raise a small amount of funding that was still needed to complete our budget. I think the misconception was that $100,000 was our entire budget when in reality, we have a multi-million dollar budget for this series." The production company's name has switched from Wazego Collective to Willkinn Media, although both names appear on the Kickstarter page. Both the Kickstarter and Indiegogo listings contain this video about the planned new series:
