Actress Kristen Bell and her Veronica Mars co-stars are set to reunite for a special fan event at California's Comic-Con in July (13).

The cast will get fans revved up for the film adaptation of the cult Tv show by debuting exclusive movie footage at the annual comic book convention in San Diego on 19 July (13).

Creator Rob Thomas and Bell are throwing the private event at Comic-Con for fans who have contributed $150 (£95) or more to the campaign set up to finance the upcoming Veronica Mars movie project.

Thomas is also in talks with convention organisers about putting on an official panel discussion at Comic-Con.

He began the online fundraiser last month (Mar13) in the hope of pulling in $2 million (£1.25 million) for his Veronica Mars movie dream; the target was hit less than 24 hours after its launch.

The Kickstarter page has pulled in more than $5.2 million (£3.3 million) to date.
