Revenge actress Emily Vancamp has become the latest star to appeal for fan donations to get her new movie off the ground.

The blonde beauty has agreed to appear in a small, independent film called The Girl in the Book along with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo star Michael Nyqvist, but producers are struggling to raise enough cash to shoot the movie.

They need $65,000 (£41,935) to complete their budget, so an appeal has been launched on crowd sourcing website, and VanCamp is urging her fans to back the project.

In a post on her page, she posts a link to the campaign and writes, "So excited to be a part of this film! Check this out..."

A message on the fundraising page adds, "We've raised our entire shooting budget, earning us a green light... The cast and crew are all underway, the locations have been locked down, we're ready to go! If you contribute to this project, you can count on seeing it finished!...

"Due to actor availability issues, we had a small window to bring this film into production. While we've raised enough money to get us through principal photography, we're still in need of $65,000 to cover all remaining expenses."

Other stars who have used the website to successfully fund their projects include actor Zach Braff, who raised a massive $3.1 million (£2 million) in donations to make a sequel to his cult film Garden State, while Tv series Veronica Mars is heading to the big screen in a fan-funded film.
