Veronica Mars Movie Featurette Focuses On A Familiar LoVe Triangle
Dick and Veronica forever! (DiVe?) Ok, probably not, but letís all applaud the final moments of the above featurette for entertaining the thought. Alas, Veronica Mars isnít an eager-to-please brunette. But she is a super-smart private eye, and exactly the kind of person youíd 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
Watch The Veronica Mars Movie Footage Revealed At Comic-Con
Given that a lot of us helped pay for the upcoming Veronica Mars movie, it only makes sense that we get a look at what's in store even while the movie is shooting. And while the attendees at the movie's Comic-Con panel yesterday actually got face time with the cast, the five-minute preview for the film that showed in Hall H is now available for the rest of us to see above.
Veronica Mars Movie Comic-Con Panel Live Blog
Veronica Mars is getting a movie! That's not news, I know. But it's still exciting, and today in Hall H at Comic-Con, the cast and director (series creator) Rob Thomas will convene to answer questions and show us some exclusive footage.

Leighton Meester Out Of Veronica Mars Movie, But See Ken Marino's Return
Veronica Mars creator has been doing an impressive job re-wrangling the show's far-flung cast six years after its cancellation for its long hoped for movie. Unfortunately, Leighton Meester, who played classmate Carrie Bishop in a pair of episodes, won't be back for the Veronica Mars movie, though her character will be.
James Franco Rumored To Have A Cameo In Veronica Mars
Franco and a small list of other celebrities will feature into the film as victims of hidden camera scams. In the movie, celebrity houses are being broken into and cameras are set up to record private moments - with the tapes then being sold online.
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! This is cause to celebrate for those of us who had Vinnie Van Lowe high on our list of characters we wanted to see reprised in the Kickstarted 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.
Sam Huntington And Amanda Noret Join Veronica Mars Movie
These days, Sam Huntington can be found on the Syfy channel, battling his growly inner urges as a werewolf on the U.S. remake of Being Human, but once upon a time, about five minutes (give or take a year or two) before he played Jimmy Olsen in Superman Returns, he appeared in Veronica Mars. He reunited with Kristen Bell years later for Fanboys and it looks like he'll be reuniting with her again on the big screen...
Veronica Mars Movie Adds Percy Daggs III, Chris Lowell And One More
The last couple of days have brought a flurry of news on the Veronica Mars movie-front, some random and some less random but no less fantastic. As the video above indicates, Percy Daggs III has signed on to reprise his role as Wallace Fennel, Veronica's best friend and occasional accomplice from Neptune High. Their friendship carried over into college in Season 3.
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.
