First Look: The 'Veronica Mars' Movie in Production with Kristen Bell
After fans rallied by way of Kickstarter to get the long-awaited film adaptation of the cult favorite TV series Veronica Mars off the ground, the dream is finally alive. The Warner Bros. production, backed by $5.7 million from fans, is already underway in Los Angeles, and the first photo straight from the set with star Kristen Bell has arrived. It's nothing too thrilling, but fans will certainly be happy to see Bell back in action as the titular private investigator. For a series that was canceled in 2007, this is quite an amazing feat, and we're still waiting to see how it effects the industry, but that will come after the film gets released.
Here's the first look at Rob Thomas' Veronica Mars from EW:
Veronica Mars is written and directed by Rob Thomas, creator of the original TV series which lasted three seasons on The CW. Kristen Bell returns as the titular private investigator, but plot details on the feature film adaptation are under wraps. The film was given life after a successful Kickstarter campaign prompted support from Warner Bros. for distribution. Series cast members returning for the film include Enrico Colantoni, Jason Dohring, Percy Daggs III, Chris Lowell, Tina Majorino and Ken Marino. The film doesn't yet have a release date, but Warner Bros. is expected to release it sometime in 2014. Anyone excited yet?
