Fans of 'Veronica Mars' and supporters of their Kickstarter to fund the upcoming film were treated to quite the presentation at last night's panel at Comic-Con 2013. Creator Rob Thomas presented the ultimate thank you in the form of a new video featuring behind the scenes footage and the very first teaser trailer.
Boy, that 'Veronica Mars' movie is really putting its extra Kickstarter cash to work! Most of the casting announcements from the fan-funded feature film adaptation of the teenage private eye drama have revolved around former cast members signing on, or new roles created for the film, but the latest could be the biggest yet. 'This is the End' star James Franco has reportedly joined the cast, but as whom, the marshmallows ask?

That extra $3+ million dollars raised by the 'Veronica Mars' movie Kickstarter continues working overtime for the production, though it has brought things to an all-time "Lowe." Ken Marino is the latest star to reprise his role for the upcoming fan-funded movie, while his former 'Party Down' co-star Martin Starr has also joined the production in an original role.
Those unfamiliar with 'Veronica Mars' in its original incarnation might be dumbfounded to learn of the now-famous guest stars that appeared over the years, from Aaron Paul ('Breaking Bad') to Jessica Chastain. Now, as filming begins on the long-awaited movie, current 'New Girl' star Max Greenfield has also signed up to reprise his role as Deputy Leo D'Amato.
Just the other day 'Veronica Mars' announced the news that Tina Majorino's Mac would return for the upcoming Kickstarter movie, and now the fan-funded feature film has added two more returning favorites. 'Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23' star Krysten Ritter will reprise her character Gia Goodman, while 'Party Down' favorite Ryan Hansen will be back as Dick Casablancas, and we have the dance number to prove it!
We've been doing our best to keep up with the 'Veronica Mars' movie, which so far as we know has yet to actually enter production, but certainly won't be doing so without some of its most recognizable stars. The latest to sign on for the fan-funded feature is that of fan-favorite Tina Majorino's hacker extraordinaire, Cindy “Mac” Mackenzie, along with a host of familiar faces.
Though no Hollywood Kickstarter effort has been all that well-received since 'Veronica Mars' controversially utilized the service to launch its long-awaited film, it seems the 'Friday Night Lights' movie may finally happen thanks to the crowd-sourcing website. Producer Brian Grazer insists the movie adaptation of Peter Berg's NBC/DirecTV series -- itself adapted from the original movie adaptation of the same name -- remains in development, with crowd-sourcing as its likely next step.
