‘Veronica Mars’ Cast Heading To Comic Con

Are you ready to see even more of Veronica Mars? Since Kristen Bell, Rob Thomas and the gang launched their record breaking Kickstarter for the new film, it’s all anyone can talk about. Now with just three days left to the campaign, which has raised close to 5 million dollars, it’s been announced that the cast involved with the film will be at Comic Con this summer.
For those not in the know Comic Con is a convention held in San Diego every July, holding panels for the most talked about sci-fi or blockbuster films. Every year celebrities flock to the convention center to spill the details on the most-talked about projects. This year the cast of Veronica Mars will head to Comic Con to talk about their fully funded movie.
It’s a great move to get even more buzz surrounding the film. In addition, the show was staged in the fictional town of Neptune, California, so the show and cast already has that Californian vibe. One rumor that seems to be sprouting up is that the cast will reveal some footage shot from the movie, which seems a bit premature seeing asBell just gave birth. That said the team of “marshmallows” does have two solid months to shoot at least a teaser. We wouldn’t really put it past them when they have come this far.
Via the Kickstarter page, Rob Thomas confirmed that the cast will be there, but that’s the only detail he was giving to the 76 thousand backers of the Veronica Mars project.
The most interesting thing about this announcement is that it invites even more fans to come out and support the film, and of course if Comic Con is known for anything it’s for the costumes. It would be pretty great to see the fans dressed up as Veronica Mars and Logan. Stay tuned for more updates.
