Funded by fans, this follow-up to the cult TV show feels a lot like an extended reunion episode. But even those unfamiliar with the series will enjoy the twisty plot and smart dialog, plus the sparky Kristen Bell in the title role. And while there are rather too many characters for a stand-alone movie, they all feed nicely into the central mystery.
After escaping from the run-down seaside town of Neptune, California, nine years ago, Veronica (Bell) has become a New York lawyer. But just as she's on the verge of landing her first proper job, an old friend is murdered back home, waking her investigatory instincts. The worst of it is that her ex Logan (Dohring) is the prime suspect, so Veronica heads home to help him clear his name. Her private eye dad (Colantoni) just rolls his eyes when she slips back into her old mystery-solving role, working with her pals Mac, Weevil and Wallace (Majorino, Capra and Daggs). But three other classmates - Gia, Cobb and Dick (Ritter, Starr and Hansen) - are also involved. And the fact that she keeps putting off her return to New York annoys her boyfriend Piz (Lowell).
The most refreshing thing about this film is the way filmmaker Thomas refuses to play by the usual rules. Bell may have been offered a dream job, but we fully understand why she's blowing it off to help her friends. And the whodunit plot is just intriguing enough to hold our interest: we don't really care who the villain really is, but it's fun to watch Veronica dig through the clues and challenge every level of authority. And the script gleefully stirs in red herrings, side-plots and lots of suspicious-looking characters.

The cast could not be more excited as they walked the red carpet at SXSW Music, Film + Interactive Festival, chatted with fans, took a couple of selfies (as is traditional) and generally shared the love.

Carrie Bishop is dead. Long live Carrie Bishop!
Leighton Meester will not play Neptune high’s resident mean girl Carrie Bishop in the upcoming Veronica Mars movie. VM creator Rob Thomas announced the news today. However, the part has quickly been recast, with Andrea Estella, lead singer of indie pop band Twin Sister taking on the challenge, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Scheduling conflicts prevent Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester from reprising her role.
Thomas, who has made a pledge to keep fans of the Veronica Mars story in the loop on everything, explained the decision in an email to the film’s Kickstarter backers. The email reads: “One of the reasons I wanted Leighton, beyond her talent/beauty/history in the show, was that we needed a performer who could sing in this important role. Once it became evident that we couldn’t make Leighton’s schedule work, I decided to cast someone from a band I already wanted in the movie.”
