Less than one month after starting a campaign to help complete a documentary about late Spartacus star Andy Whitfield’s battle with cancer, the people behind the project have met their funding goal on Kickstarter. But what now?
Director Lilibet Foster tells EW that after raising the $200,000 needed to fund the editing of the footage they had gathered while following Whitfield, she plans to have the documentary, Be Here Now, finished by the end of the year for a possible release in early 2013. Whitfield, former star of Spartacus, died at age 39 in Sept. 2011 after fighting his second battle with non-Hodgkin lymphoma. »
