“Veronica Mars” creator Rob Thomas and star Kristen Bell (pictured together above) took part in a Twitter chat Thursday (March 21) to answer fan questions about the upcoming “Veronica Mars” movie, which has over $3.75 million raised on Kickstarter.
Here are some highlights:
Question: Will Vinnie and Cliff be back? Please say yes.
Thomas: That’s the plan. I hope they both say yes.
Question: Will the #veronicamarsmovie still have the same snarky humor as the show did? And Will Weevil be making an appearance?
Thomas: Yes to the first. And I sure hope Francis/Weevil will be in it. I’m planning on it.
Question: Is there a script for the movie yet? If not, do you know at this stage what direction it’ll take?
Thomas: Movie is outlined. First 40 pages are written. I definitely know the direction.
Question: Will veronica be dating anyone? or married?
Thomas: She will open the movie with a boyfriend. What happens in the movie will be rough on her love life.
Question: What has Logan been up to since the end of the show?
Thomas: That will be a surprise. I know. But I’m not telling.
Thomas goes on to tease that he hopes to see Wallace (Percy Daggs III), Gia (Krysten Ritter) and Madison Sinclair (Amanda Noret), Carrie Bishop (Leighton Meester) and Duncan (Teddy Dunn). He also says there’s a cameo with Kristen Bell’s real-life fiance Dax Shepard‘s name on it — “I have already written the Dax cameo in the movie. It’s a funny one.”
Who you won’t see are Lilly Kane — “I’m not planning on flashbacks to the teen days” — or Meg’s kid. After all, the movie’s focus is the Neptune High School 10-year class reunion.
Fans of The Dandy Warhols will also be happy — Thomas “hopes to do cool stuff with the [theme] song. Possibly get Courtney Taylor Taylor in movie.”
And to gear up for the movie, Bell promises a rewatch — “I plan on it! with live tweets!”
