Veronica Mars the movie will hit screens on March 14, 2014, almost exactly one year after Rob Thomas launched the Kickstarter campaign to get the much-anticipated, begged-for film adaptation of the popular TV series made. That campaign was a huge success, surpassing Thomas’ goal of $2 million and setting a record for Kickstarter by collecting $5,702,153 toward the film’s budget.
Warner Bros will release the film and in an interview with EW, Thomas talked about the chosen release date. “Warner Bros. had this date circled for quite some time and hoped it would stay open. Luckily, no other teen detective movie decided to open in the middle of March.”
Written and directed by Thomas, the cast of Veronica Mars is led by Kristen Bell and includes Ryan Hansen, Enrico Colantoni, Percy Daggs III, Tina Majorino, Francis Capra, Chris Lowell and Krysten Ritter.
In the film, Veronica Mars has put Neptune and her amateur sleuthing days behind her on the eve of graduating law school. While interviewing at high-end law firms, Veronica gets a call from her ex-boyfriend Logan who has been accused of murder. Veronica heads back to Neptune just to help Logan find an attorney, but when things don’t seem right with how Logan’s case is perceived and handled, Veronica finds herself being pulled back into a life she thought she had left behind.
