Weevil Is Back For the Veronica Mars Film

Yes, it’s true! Neptune’s resident bad boy has been confirmed for the Veronica Mars film.

weevilIn a private message to backers of the Kickstarter Campaign, writer/director Rob Thomas has officially announced that Francis Capra will be joining the cast and reprising his role as Eli “Weevil” Navarro.  When we left off in season three, Weevil’s wobbly ways were being questioned on trying to maintain a balance between his old PCH Biker Gang leader image and the need to be on a more honest path. Hopefully he hasn’t gotten himself into too much trouble along the way!

With this addition, the confirmation count is up to lucky number seven: Veronica Mars, Keith Mars, Logan Echolls, Wallace Fennel, Piz Piznarski, Weevil Navarro, and the waiter.

As of yesterday, there is exactly a week left before production begins.  This also means another week of character confirmations.  Thomas cheekily closes the update with, “And yes, I know you’re still wondering about your other favorites. I said every day this week, didn’t I?” There’s still plenty of time for your Veronica Mars favorites to come into play!
