7 Big ‘Veronica Mars’ Movie Spoilers Revealed

Creator Rob Thomas reveals 7 big Veronica Mars movie spoilers Creator Rob Thomas has teased 7 major spoilers for the impending Veronica Mars movie, which starts shooting this summer after securing a $2 million (+) budget from fans of the failed WB/The CW series on Kickstarter.

Since going on Kickstarter last week, Veronica Mars has secured more than $4 million from eager audience members desperate to see Kristen Bell's title character on the big screen. The film is happening with a larger budget than originally planned, thanks to many generous donations, and now Rob Thomas is faced with the challenge of making a movie that fans old and new will enjoy (especially since it's costing quite a few of them more than just a movie ticket).

About the screenplay, Thomas had this to say,

"If we turn in a lousy movie, that would be a sad ending to the story. Fans want to see all those characters back together again. And the reunion set piece allows me to do that."

Yes, as mentioned when the news broke, the movie will revolve around a Neptune High School reunion, with Veronica having graduated from college. At this time, Kristen Bell is the only cast member officially signed on, but expect to hear more official cast announcements shortly.

Rob Thomas has offered more insight into the story beyond this 10 year reunion. Will Veronica be single? What is she doing now? What will the movie be rated? And who isn't returning to Neptune? Read on if you want to know 7 Huge Spoilers for this highly anticipated big screen continuation of the popular TV series.

First up: What's up with Veronica's love life? It has been confirmed that the private investigator will be seeing someone at the start of the movie, but it won't be her ex.

"Thomas reveals that Veronica 'is dating someone' at the start of the movie, but he declines to say whether her suitor is an existing character or someone new. He does, however, rule out her ex Logan, whom 'she hasn't seen in nine years.'"

Second: What has Veronica been doing for the past 10 years?

"She transferred away from Hearst College after that freshman year and went up to Stanford and finished her undergraduate degree. And then she went to Columbia Law School. She's certainly been back to Neptune from time to time to see her dad and Mac and Wallace, but she hasn't worked a PI case since the last one we all saw in the final episode of Season 3. She ruined her dad's chance for re-election and she decided that that path had caused too much chaos in her life. And so she hasn't worked a PI case in nine years. And when we meet her, she's sort of like where Tom Cruise was in the beginning of The Firm. She's between having graduated and taken the bar and she's interviewing at various law firms in New York."

Third: A beloved character will definitely not be returning. That's right, Veronica's canine sidekick Backup is currently living in doggy heaven.

"If you do the math, that's a big dog to still be alive 13 years later. Most 100lb dogs, they get 7 or 8 years of life. It would strain credulity if the same Backup were still alive."

Fourth: Backup isn't the only character that won't return for this 10-year reunion.

"I want to avoid getting deep into the Veronica Mars mythology. We're not going to get ghost visits from Lilly, as much as I joked about having Amanda Seyfried in it. We're not going to get into Veronica's backlog of cases. I want to make the movie accessible for people who haven't watched Veronica Mars before. All you need to know is that Veronica was a teenage private eye and she's given it up. And there will be a moment early in the movie that will bring her back to Neptune and make her give being a private detective one more shot."

Fifth: What will the movie be rated?

"The movie will be rated PG-13. That's what Rob Thomas is 'shooting for'."

Sixth: Veronica and her dad will continue the relationship as seen in the TV series, with Keith being more than just a cameo.

"Much like on the series, the father-daughter relationship between Keith and Veronica will be a 'big theme' in the movie, maintains Thomas."

Finally, Seventh: Veronica will not die in the movie, and there is a slight possibility of a 10-episode Netflix series down the road. Maybe. Someday.

"Veronica will survive the movie. I can't promise anyone else does though. But there will be an opportunity for Veronica do to her thing again. I'd be lying if I didn't say I didn't think of those things. I am hopeful it is the birth of [much more] Veronica Mars."

Are you excited for the rebirth of Veronica Mars? Did you donate money to the cause? Or do you think this is a waste of time?

Veronica Mars was released March 14th, 2014.

        Whoops I meant @2movieguys you should watch it it's awesome


        • Caitlin-Hudson • 2 years ago

          This was my favourite tv show, until I saw all of friends, so it is now my second favourite, but still, I love this show, anyway, I was sooo happy and excited when I heard they were making a movie, but when I read that the movie was not going to have stuff referring to the tv series, so it would be accessible to people new to the show, I think it won't be as good, I can't really explain what I mean, it's like-The tv show Get Smart, in the movie, the whole story of the characters and everything was completely different to the tv series, which of course was made first, one of the things I really hope they don't do is have Duncan in the movie, even though I love his character, in season 2 he kidnaps his daughter, so realistically he would be arrested if he went back to Neptune or even America, I still want to see it though.

          Btw- @CelluloidDreams you should watch it, it's awesome.

          And also @Titon to your previous question, she couldn't still be in highschool in the movie, since in season 3 she is in college

            Never watched it!!

              Veronica Mars is arguably one of my favorite TV series of all-time. And I've watched a lot of television in my day. It's funny how I got started watching it. I was bored one day, went to Wal-Mart and I saw season 1 sitting on the shelf with a $44.99 price tag. I've never paid that much for a series I've never seen before, but the cover was very atmospheric and I liked that. I decided to give it a shot. My dad and I watched the first season in two days lol. I immediately bought the second season and we finished that in three days. We ended up catching up and watching the third season on The CW. What sucks is that both seasons 1 and 2 were done spectacularly. There was a central mystery that was solved in both season finales and each episode was a small mystery that tied into the central mystery. While each episode brought us closer to the truth, I never felt like I was left hanging as a small mystery was solved every episode. The CW is to blame for the show's failure. They took a different approach in season 3, wanting to make each episode stand alone. It wasn't bad, but it definitely wasn't as good as the first two seasons. I would love for this series to have a second life. Veronica Mars is different than other private investigators because she 'was a teenager'. Her dad was a licensed PI and Veronica was his sidekick. I can't begin to explain the chemistry the two actors had. It was perfection. Not to mention, Veronica is quirky, charming and sarcastic. Give it a watch. I promise you won't be sorry. I definitely wasn't.

                @ejk1@narrator What is Veronica Mars about? She was a private investigator as a teenager, what does she have, other investgators don't?


                • dan1 • 2 years ago

                  @ejk1 Hahahaha I love the TASM2 slam.

                  Thinking about watching this one day.


                  • ejk1 • 2 years ago

                    @Titon Considering that you've never watched the show, I'll do us both a favor and completely ignore your opinion on the film. Have a great day.


                    • narrator • 2 years ago

                      @Titon I was unaware that there was a detective "look" one had to have in order to be a private investigator. Kind of defeats the whole subtle purpose. Also, she'll be neither a P.I. or a detective at the start of this film.

                      @ejk1 Agreed. RIP, Backup.


                      • Titon • 2 years ago

                        @ejk1 The story line sounds lame and Kristen Bell doesn't look like a detective to me, I'll wait for the trailer.


                        • ejk1 • 2 years ago

                          @Titon Why would they leave her in high school? Bell is in her 30's. This isn't Amazing Spider-Man 2.

                            @bawnian-dexeus - is it wrong if I don't know what Veronica Mars is? :P


                            • Titon • 2 years ago

                              This show was about a teenage girl who is a detective? and in the movie she's all grown up?


                              • bawnian-dexeus • 2 years ago

                                Have no idea of what I just read :p


                                • ejk1 • 2 years ago

                                  Sounds good, Rob.

                                  RIP, Backup.
