Caliburn24 here with everyone’s favorite private investigator from Neptune, California. Rob Thomas, the creator of the show, has posted his completion of the first draft of the Veronica Mars film. Veronica Mars was a brilliant drama that aired for two years on UPN. The show starred Kristen Bell as Veronica Mars, the p.i. who also helped things at Neptune High, alongside her friend, Wallace Finnel, played by Percy Daggs III. Enrico Colantoni, plays Veronica’s father, Keith Mars. He is the head of Mars Investigations. The first season had Veronica uncovering the death of her best friend, Lily Kane, played by Amanda Seyfried. Teddy Dunn played Duncan Kane, Veronica’s ex and Lily’s brother. Logan Echolls, played by Jason Dohring, is the sometime rival to Veronica and friend to Duncan. Francis Capra played the leader of PCH gang, Eli “Weevil” Navarro. Bell and Dohring are set to return for the film.
Fans have funded $4.5 million on Kickstarter to get the project to the screen. Thomas wrote on an update, “I’ve just finished a first draft of the movie you’re helping us make! There’s a lot of work left to do, but it’s a movie I can’t wait to make. I think it’s also the movie you’ve been waiting to see.” Thomas continued with the records that were made for the film, “You guys shattered just about every Kickstarter record there is (and we’ve still got our sights set on one more). Fastest project to $1 million. Fastest project to $2 million. Biggest film project in Kickstarter history. And now, as we go into the final week of this insane experiment, we’ve raised a little bit over $4.5 million (!!!), which makes it a little hard to contain ourselves. So first of all, here’s the most important message I need to share with you: thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Because of the way you stepped up, we’re going to make history. We’re also going to make, in my humble opinion, a really great movie.” It is just a waiting game until the Veronica Mars film hits the screens.
