Following an incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign last year, shooting began over the summer, and the first trailer was launched at the start of the year. And now, following yesterday’s announcement that the film will have its world premiere out in Austin at SXSW, the first poster has debuted over on Yahoo Movies.
Years after walking away from her past as a teenage private eye, Veronica Mars gets pulled back to her hometown, an ex-boyfriend with baggage, and an unraveling murder mystery.
Kristen Bell of course reprises her eponymous leading role, with Enrico Colantoni, Jason Dohring, Tina Majorino, Percy Daggs III, Chris Lowell, Sam Huntington, Amanda Noret, Daran Norris, Gaby Hoffman, Martin Starr, and Ken Marino joining her for the ride.
Rob Thomas makes his feature directorial debut with the film, having created the original series. He’s directing from a script he co-wrote with Diane Ruggiero (Veronica Mars, Dirty Sexy Money).
Veronica Mars will begin its limited release in US cinemas on March 14th, following its debut on the festival circuit at SXSW. Still no word yet on a UK release date, but hopefully it will be arriving on our shores before long too. In the meantime, here’s the first poster, which you can click through to enlarge, followed by the first trailer in case you missed its arrival last week. Enjoy.
