Veronica Mars Movie Set For March 2014
School reunion time...

Thanks to the success of the Kickstarter effort, the film based on beloved, cancelled-too-soon ‘teen PI TV drama Veronica Marswas shot earlier this year. Creator / director Rob Thomas has been editing and test-screening the movie, and has now revealed to Entertainment Weekly that it’ll be out – in the States, at least – on March 14, 2014, almost a year to the day after the original fund-raising campaign kicked off.

Veronica (Kristen Bell) is returning in more ways than one. The film finds her headed back to her hometown of Neptune, California, after 10 years away, to aid former flame Logan (Jason Dohring), who has been accused of killing his pop star girlfriend.

While the original idea from Warner Bros. was to open in a limited release in cinemas and expand via digital platforms, the plan is now to give it a wider launch. Thomas seems pleased, especially since he went about making the film with more ambition than money even with the fund drive.

“There are smart ways to do a movie of this size – and we chose none of them,” he tells EW. “We are a low budget movie with big set pieces and 60 speaking roles. A murder mystery in a house would have been more cost effective. But I think we have managed to pull it off.”

With luck, Veronica will make her way to the UK soon after the American release. There’s a clip up at EW if you need a fix of classic Mars snark.

RE:
L: cliff126 Still a bad idea to use kickstarter for this. You're seriously telling me Bell or Thomas haven't made enough money to fund this for themselves, or ask a freaking studio? It's bad enough crying for your fans to fund the money instead. Hi They had been trying for years to get the studio to make the film and they would not. Really looking forward to seeing this next year. More
