Release Date for Writer and director Rob Thomas’s Veronica Mars movie is March 14th, 2014.
The original plan was to give the movie a limited theatrical engagement in just a few cities before going wide. It would also be available on video on demand and other digital platforms. Thomas now says that Warner Bros. will start out with a wider, nationwide release, and then let the marketplace decide how long it will stay in theaters.
“We’re not going to dribble it out there. There are smart ways to do a movie of this size — and we chose none of them. We are a low budget movie with big set pieces and 60 speaking roles. A murder mystery in a house would have been more cost effective. But I think we have managed to pull it off.”
Thomas shot the movie in 23 days this past summer, and is currently putting on the finishing touches in post-production. Thomas already did a test screening for the film, and it was apparently well received.
In the movie, Veronica returns to her hometown of Neptune, California, after 10 years away to help her former friend Logan (Jason Dohring), who has been accused of killing his pop star girlfriend.
