It was announced last week via the Kickstarter backer’s mailing list that the Veronica Mars film has been scheduled for a theatrical release in the US on March 14, 2014. The new film will be the first time the character has appeared back on screens since the TV series was cancelled back in 2007.
Opening on that weekend will see Miss Mars competing directly against the Need for Speed film, a week earlier sees the opening of 300: Rise of an Empire and Darren Aronofsky’s Noah is released later during that month.
March 14 represent one year almost to the day since the kickstarter for the film launched, meaning that the movie received funding, was written, shot, edited, scored, and distributed all within that time which is an impressive accomplishment for the entire team.
It’s currently unknown whether the film will see a theatrical release outside of the US, that might depend on how well the film opens as well as the marketing/distribution budgets that have been allocated to the project.
For now however the film is undergoing the final touches on visual effects as well as the score, as that release date slowly edges closer.
