We Can't Wait #14: Veronica Mars

[Editor's Note: We Can't Wait is a Team Experience series,in which we highlight our top 14 most anticipated films of 2014.Here'sDancin' DanonVeronica Mars.]

Veronica Mars
Kristen Bell reprises her role as the title character in this neo-noir murder mystery that picks up nine year after where Season 3 of the eponymous TV series left off.

Talent
Rob Thomas,creator of the original series is in the director's chair.Kristen Bell is joined in front of the camera by other series regulars including Jason Dohring.

Why We Can't Wait
Ihave been firmly in the tankfor Rob Thomas'sVeronica Marsever since the television series ended in 2007.I'm pretty sure that's longer than anyone else has been waiting for their most anticipated film - even Terrence Malick isn't taking that long between films anymore!But ever since that dark day in May seven years ago,there has been talk of reuniting the cast for another iteration of the story.First there was a "Season Four"that was essentially a completely different show,jumping forward in time a few years to where intrepid teen detective Veronica Mars was a junior FBI agent.That was ultimately rejected by the network.

Talk of a movie began almost immediately following that disappointment,but Thomas and star Bell repeatedly said that they wouldn't do it unless they had something really good.Such talk often crops up around beloved cult shows that get cancelled (Arrested Development,Party Down,etc.),and only rarely does anything actually happen.Veronica's devoted Marshmallows had begun to lose hope in our cherished characters returning to our lives.And then,in a flurry of activity last March,that all changed.Theannouncementon YouTube.The creation of theKickstarter page.To paraphrase one of The Film Experience's亚博主页favorite movies,this was no dream - it was really happening!

One month later,Veronica Marshad made crowd-funding history and kicked off a mini-trend of celebrity filmmakers trying their hand at it.But make no mistake,this is the one we've all been waiting for.Will it make money?Will it attract people who never watched the TV show?Will it even be any good?We will find out soon enough.I'm counting down the days until I get to reunite with Veronica,Keith,Mac,Logan,Dick,and Wallace (hell,even Piz) at the Neptune High 10-Year Reunion!

But We Do Have To Wait
Only until March 14th!Warner Brothers is distributing the film.

Speaking as someone who never watched the show during its original run,I am very excited for this.Amazon Prime just released all 3 seasons.Go watch 'em now!If you're a sucker for detective stories (like me) or a fan of high school comedies (like me) then it's right up your alley.

Can't wait for the movie.Now that I've been introduced to the characters,I love the trailer even more.

All my friends have been on to me about seeing the show and it is weird this was a show I didn't watch when it was airing since I pretty much watch EVERYTHING.With that said,just saw the fantastic S1 a couple weeks ago and just bought the next two seasons.I should be all caught up way before opening weekend.

Kickstarter backer here.I have my T-shirt,my foaming-at-the-mouth enthusiasm,and NO REGRETS.The excitement alone over this past year has been worth the 30 bucks.I will be at the front of the line,praying for something that lives up to the show's quality.

Join me!!
