Good news, everyone! The Veronica Mars Kickstarter project that started the questionable trend of affluent filmmakers asking people to both fund and pay full ticket prices to see their new movies will start shooting in a mere nine days. Even better news, everybody: basically all the cast members from the original show have signed up for the film.
According to the Atlantic Wire, hardly a character will be missing from the Veronica Mars universe — Chris Lowell will reprise his season three role as Stosh “Piz” Piznarski, and Percy Daggs III will return as Veronica’s bff, Wallace Fennel. Some minor characters, however, have not yet boarded the goodship Mars. The Wire’s Connor Simpson cautions fans,
We don't know if Francis Capra's Weevil, the biker thug with a heart of gold, or Tina Majorino's Mac, Veronica's nerdy galpal, or Teddy Dunn's Duncan Kane, Veronica's original high school sweetheart, will be returning in the movie.
With less than two weeks before the movies starts shooting, there’s still plenty of time to get all the casting rumors sorted out, but it’s hard to imagine that the Veronica Mars movie could come this far without locking up even its most ancillary characters.
