The Veronica Mars Film Is Close To Production

As all the Marshmallows are patiently waiting for the Veronica Mars film to get underway, new updates have come out!

In a private message to backers of the Kickstarter Campaign, writer/director Rob Thomas has officially announced a production start date of June 17.  VM-KickstarterThomas also shared that casting is almost finished and that fans will be pleased. But don’t expect any surprise casting because, “If you’re holding out for characters who died on the show, you’ll probably be less pleased.”

Other news, the production staff is filling out and they have added a Line Producer, a Production Designer, and a Director of Photography — all of whom will be introduced soon.  Location scouting has been done the last several weeks, and will mostly be of practical locations rather than pre-built sets.  Look out Southern Californians! This means that you may be able to glimpse on location filming.

The best part of all is that they have a documentary crew capturing everything! The behind-the-scenes documentary will come out next year and give fans insight on the whole production process from start to finish.
