Veronica Mars Movie Features Arizona Actor Duane Daniels
The film finds Veronica working as a lawyer in New York and dating her college boyfriend and all-around nice guy, Stosh "Piz" Piznarski (Chris Lowell). She's called back to Neptune after her on-again, off-again ex-boyfriend who never skimped on drama, Logan Echolls (Jason Dohring), is suspected of murdering is girlfriend.
She returns to Neptune to investigate, attend a high school reunion, and, perhaps, rekindle her romance with Echolls.
That's the perfect excuse to resurrect the show's classic characters, including Veronica's BFF Wallace Fennel (Percy Daggs III), Logan's longtime pal Dick Casablancas (Ryan Hansen), and Veronica's dad, Keith (Enrico Colantoni).
Of course, that brings Daniels' character back into the mix, too.
"It's great to get to check back in with them years later," he says, adding that the cast includes "some of the greatest people" he's ever known.
With Veronica putting her detective's cap back on to help out her ex, the film sounds supremely similar to the show's method of setting up and solving crimes. And for folks looking for a nice conclusion to the program, that sounds like a very promising setup.
Daniels didn't want to give anything away -- or even venture to guess if Veronica fans would get some closure from the film.
"I don't want to spoil too much, frankly," he says. "So I'm going to leave you hanging on that one."
He did, however, divulge his preference as far as Veronica's love interests go.
"I'm sorry. I'm team Logan," he says. "I'm a Logan guy myself. Team Logan all the way."
Veronica Mars opens in select theaters on Friday, March 14.
