Veronica Mars is returning for fans with a new movie. How did Kristen become convinced? She said that she has always wanted to make a movie. The show has become more popular on DVD since leaving the airwaves.

Finally, the creative team turned to Kickstarter to raise funds to produce the movie, after traditional financing channels failed. Now the film has been completed, and the original cast has remained friends through the years, so it was fun to reunite for a few weeks to shoot the film.

The film was shot in just 24 days, because it was a labor of love and they had to make the project happen on their budget. In a scene from the movie, Veronica learned what Logan has been up to in the nine years since they have seen one another. Now he is a suspect in a murder.

Veronica Mars is coming to theaters on Friday, March 14 2014.
