The 'Veronica Mars' movie was the focus of a panel at Comic-Con in San Diego, where director Rob Thomas presented new footage. The 'Veronica Mars' movie is currently being filmed.
It seems like only yesterday that creator Rob Thomas and star Kristen Bell were kickstarting the cinematic continuation of their beloved teen girl detective series, Veronica Mars – which subsequently made $5+ million and became the “most backed” Kickstarter ever.
Now the Veronica Mars movie is smack-dab in the middle of production, which means there’s just enough footage to debut a trailer (of sorts) at San Diego Comic-Con 2013.
As we know from the Kickstarter and Thomas’ interviews, the plot of the movie revolves around Veronica’s ten-year high school reunion and the murder of Logan Echolls’ (Jason Dohring) pop star girlfriend.
In the time since the series finale, Veronica hasn’t taken a single detective case, she’s moved to New York City, and she’s graduated from Columbia Law School.
You can see some of that on display in the movie footage. For example, it appears that Veronica is being interviewed by a law firm (note the cameo with Bell’s You Again co-star Jamie Lee Curtis) near the beginning of the trailer.
We also see a moment where Veronica gets a phone call from Logan where he pleads for her help – probably because he’s the main suspect in his girlfriend’s murder – and she explains that she “[doesn't] really do that anymore.”
