Much like its TV show counterpart, it appears the “Veronica Mars” movie will be full of quick-witted pop culture-ready soundbites, a savvy sleuth out to right a wrong, and, well, said sleuth’s paramour problem.
The trailer for the eagerly awaited, Kickstarter-backed movie intersperses new scenes with shots from the UPN-to-CW TV series to emphasize that the more things change, the more they stay the same: Kristen Bell’s Veronica may now be living the grown-up life with Chris Lowell’s Stosh “Piz” Piznarski, her good-natured boyfriend from the show’s final season, but it doesn’t take much more than a phone call from trouble-pron bad boy ex Logan Echolls (Jason Dohring) to draw her back to her Neptune, California roots. Cast and crew interviews also devote time to this love triangle, including writer-director Rob Thomas’ admittance that he would like his daughter to end up with a Piz — even though he knows Logan’s qualities might be more interesting for fiction.
With no release date in sight, “Veronica Mars” fans will just have to wait to see who wins.
