Hi, Bryan Here….
Only three more months until we have our very own fan funded ‘Veronica Mars‘ movie with the entire cast coming back to reprise their roles for another adventure. Back in March of this year, ‘Veronica Mars‘ creator Rob Thomas took to the crowd funding website, Kickstarter, and asked for money from the millions of ‘Veronica Mars‘ fans. The goal was set at $2.5 million, which would only be funded if that goal was met. In less than 24 hours, that goal was met and destroyed.
After a month that the Kickstarter fund was up, fans had pledged more than $5 million dollars to see their favorite tv show on the big screen. Fast forward almost a year later and we will finally have the feature film. Rob Thomas and Kristen Bell have announced that the film, which is titled ‘Veronica Mars’ will be released on March 14th, 2014 through Warner Bros. Thomas said, “Warner Bros. had this date circled for quite some time and hoped it would stay open. Luckily, no other teen detective movie decided to open in the middle of March.”
Originally, the film was going to be released in a few select cities, followed by an on demand release. Well I guess demand is high for this film and fans are still hitting the social networks hard with their excitement, so Warner Bros. has agreed to give the film a big wide release. We still don’t know the number of theaters it will open in, but expect it everywhere now.
Thomas shot the film in 23 days over this past summer and is now touching up the effects and putting together the soundtrack. He also said that at recent test screenings, the audience loved it.
In this new film, things take place 10 years later with Veronica returning to Neptune, California to aid her former boyfriend Logan (Jason Dohring) who has been accused of murdering his famous girlfriend. The entire original cast is back, and since this is 10 years into the future, you can expect a 10 year high school reunion with your favorite characters.
I cannot wait to see this. And if this does well in the theater, I imagine Zach Braff’s project has a lot to look forward to and will also pave the way for future projects.
