This Week In Home Entertainment: Veronica Mars, The Andy Griffith Show And More
The result is a film that picks up in the present, just under a decade since the heroine left the sleazy town of Neptune, California to make her way out into the world. The new Veronica Mars is as tough as her teenaged counterpart, but she’s also smarter and edgier, as evidenced by the movie’s earliest scenes.

Was Veronica Mars' Limited Release Strong Enough To Earn A Sequel?
The Kickstarter-funded film awkwardly marched into only 291 theaters – all AMC-owned venues, mind you – at the same time it was released on VOD this past weekend, but it still managed to rake in right around $2 million, making it the tenth highest-earning film of the week.

Watch 'Veronica Mars' Movie's Opening Scene
A long time ago -- or about six years ago, anyway -- Veronica Mars got cancelled. Well, you can cancel a CW show but you can't cancel Veronica Mars, not as long as the fans love her. And we do. The final line of the above clip brings it home, offering a nod to the pilot in an opening scene that's one big nod to the first season...

The Veronica Mars Movie Will Be Heading To Theaters And VOD Simultaneously
The Veronica Mars movie has been an oddball since it was initially conceived. First, there's the fact that it's a film based on a cancelled-too-soon television series, which come around maybe once every decade or so. And secondly, the feature actually got its budget by turning to fans on Kickstarter and raising the money through crowd-sourcing.

Veronica Mars Poster Puts Veronica Back To Work

One of the numerous benefits of Veronica Mars getting a feature film follow-up is that it’ll not only allow Veronica to once again face off with her nemesis Madison Sinclair, but because the film isn’t bound by the FCC guidelines that dictate content for network television, Veronica can say things like, “Let me try looking like I think you’re an asshole."

Dick and Veronica forever! (DiVe?) Ok, probably not, but let’s all applaud the final moments of the above featurette for entertaining the thought. Alas, Veronica Mars isn’t an eager-to-please brunette. But she is a super-smart private eye, and exactly the kind of person you’d want to go to if you were wanted for murder, which appears to be the case for Logan Echolls. And that brings us to one of the actual points of the unresolved Veronica Mars

Kristen Bell And Rob Thomas Chat In First Image From The Set Of Veronica Mars
All of the skeptics were wrong: the Veronica Mars movie is actually happening. Following the series' cancellation after its third season, creator Rob Thomas and star Kristen Bell kept hope alive by staying positive about the idea of a film based on the private eye show, but for years Warner Bros. had absolutely no interest in it. But then the Kickstarter happened. Thomas took to the crowdfunding website and asked fans to contribute to the making of a dream.

Ken Marino And Martin Starr Confirmed For Veronica Mars Movie
As you may have surmised by the latest video, though it's a lot more subtle than Marino's Party Down co-star Ryan Hansen's announcement video, Ken Marino is on board for the Veronica Mars movie!

Watch Ryan Hansen Celebrate His Return For Veronica Mars Movie
Well, Ryan Hansen sure does know how to make an announcement. Since he appeared in the original video for the Veronica Mars movie Kickstarter campaign, we sort of figured there was a good chance Hansen would be on board to appear in the film, reprising his role as the lovably douchey Dick Casablancas, however his casting had not yet officially been announced.
Krysten Ritter Confirmed For Veronica Mars Movie
Before she was the titular "B" in Apartment 23 and Jesse Pinkman's girlfriend Jane in Breaking Bad, Krysten Ritter played the recurring role of Gia Goodman in the second season of Veronica Mars. A little bit flaky and a lot adorable, Ritter's Gia brought style and some much needed perkiness to Season 2, in addition to being an in for Veronica to snoop around Steve Guttenberg's Woody Goodman when the need arose.
Veronica Mars Movie Adds Three More
Three more actors have officially signed on for the Veronica Mars movie. And those who've seen the original series should be familiar enough with their characters. The first is Brandon Hillock, who played Deputy Sacks. Next up is Kevin Sheridan, who played Sean Friedrich, and the last is Jonathan Chesner, who was known affectionately by his fellow Neptune High students as Corny.
Tina Majorino Signs On For Veronica Mars Movie
Majorino's character Mac was Veronica's closest female friend in the original series. She's offers the perfect blend of dry wit and tech-savviness to be of service to Veronica on both a professional and personal level. As has been the case with pretty much all the casting news that's come down the pipeline for this film so far, there's no word on what Mac will be up to when the film picks up, but it's comforting to know she'll be making an appearance in the film.

He reunited with Kristen Bell years later for Fanboys and it looks like he'll be reuniting with her again on the big screen...

Enrico Colantoni Confirmed For Veronica Mars Movie
Who's your daddy! It's impossible to envision Veronica Mars without Enrico Colantoni and his character Keith Mars. Unlike some teen dramas, which feature parents as little more than background props or devices used to set some general boundaries for the teen characters' lives, Keith Mars was a major influence in Veronica's life and their relationship was a piece of the heart of the story.

When Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas set up a Kickstarter page in the hopes of funding a follow-up film for the UPN/CW series last week, he set the goal for two million dollars, in the hopes of hitting that number or surpassing it within the 30-day time frame.
