Fresh Footage From The Veronica Mars Movie
It's love triangle-tastic!

Aside from occasional emails sent by creator Rob Thomas via the Kickstarter website, we haven’t heard much about the Veronica Mars movie since Thomas and his cast brought footage to the San Diego Comic-Con in July. Since then, he’s obviously been busy slaving away in the editing room and has put a new featurette online, which boasts some fresh material.

Veronica Mars, of course, is born from the gone-too-soon teen PI show that ran for three short seasons on US TV between 2004 and 2007. Now the movie, set 10 years later, brings Veronica (Kristen Bell) back to her hometown of Neptune to investigate her first mystery since she left nearly a decade ago.

Despite moving on with current beau Piz (Chris Lowell) and becoming a corporate lawyer, she’s drawn back home because her former flame, Logan Echols (Jason Dohring) is accused of murder. The old love triangle between the three rears its head, and that’s the subject of the featurette wrapped around the new footage. Best answer about whether they’re Team Logan or Team Piz goes to Dohring, who says he’s “Team Logan and Piz”…

Thomas has been attending test screenings of the film, and says in the latest missive to Kickstarter backers that things have been going well: “The crowd reaction was everything I hoped for. People were laughing and gasping and cheering. As a TV writer, I rarely get to experience audience reaction. I could get used to that feeling. Our distribution partners at Warner Bros. were also very pleased by the feedback and excited about the movie. The scores made me happy to the point of unseemliness.”

Veronica Mars doesn’t have a solid release date just yet, but expect it some time in 2014.
