We’ve never hidden our love – nay, obsession – with Veronica Mars. The new trailer for the upcoming Kickstarted movie doesn’t miss a beat.
Set eight years or so after the TV show’s conclusion, the movie brings back all the characters you love and/or hate. Notable additions to the cast seen (ever so briefly) in the trailer include Jamie Lee Curtis and Jerry O’Connell. Rumors of James Franco being in the film will have to remain just that.
In the movie, Veronica Mars has given up her career as a private eye to become a lawyer in New York. She returns to sleuthing when former boyfriend Logan is accused of murder. Also, there’s a high school reunion, so there’s two reasons for her to go back. How could she say no?
Though it’s not the first footage of the film released to the public – backers have been getting bits and pieces throughout production – this is the film’s first “theatrical trailer.” Why does a Kickstarter movie need a “theatrical trailer?” Due to the zeal of the film’s backers, Veronica Mars will be shown in “select theaters.”
Veronica Mars will be available, both digitally and in theaters, March 14.
