Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas turned to Kickstarter this past spring, nearly six years after the last episode had aired on The CW to ask fans for their support in making the long-promised movie happen. The so-called “Marshmallows” responded enthusiastically, crushing the $2 million goal in less than twelve hours. Now they’re finally about to be rewarded for their fervor.
Thomas announced today that Warner Bros. will release the movie, officially titled Veronica Mars, on March 14, 2014. Hit the jump for more on their distribution plans, plus a clip of Madison and Veronica trading barbs.

Ben Affleck isn’t only bringing Batman to the big screen over at Warner Bros., he’s teaming up with his old pal to produce a lesser known DC Comic, too.

Billy Bob Thornton previously signed on to co-star in the 10 episode show that’ll follow a new case with the same tone and Minnesota setting as the Oscar-winning 1996 film. Read More »
Earlier this week, Paul Thomas Anderson completed production on his seventh film, Inherent Vice. That means the excruciating wait now begins for Anderson to complete the film and get it in front of our eyes.
Based on the novel by Thomas Pynchon, the film follows a pothead detective (Joaquin Phoenix) who gets drawn into a complex crime plot when his ex-girlfriend comes back into his live. The incredibly impressive cast includes, but isn’t limited to, Benicio Del Toro, Owen Wilson, Reese Witherspoon, Josh Brolin, Sean Penn, Jena Malone, Kevin O’Connor and Martin Short.
While we wait for the film’s release, we can begin to imagine what Pynchon via Anderson will look like and a new photo might provide an idea. It’s of a very, very long stretch of dolly track Anderson used to shoot one scene. Read More »

There has never been a better time to be a beloved but cancelled TV series. This year saw Arrested Development returning for a fourth season and the long-promised Veronica Mars movie entering production, while Fox put together plans for the limited sequel series 24: Live Another Day.
In that light, it makes sense that the folks behind Terriers, the brilliant but fatally underseen FX mystery series, are sounding more and more optimistic about a possible movie sequel. This week, star Donal Logue mentioned what he believes are the “realistic” chances of a Terriers revival. Hit the jump to read his comments.

After his unceremonious exit from The Walking Dead, Frank Darabont returns to television this year with a whole new project that has nothing to do with the undead — but plenty, still, to do with monsters.

Walking Dead alums Jon Bernthal and Jeffrey DeMunn join Darabont on the new project, along with Ed Burns, Neal McDonough, Jeremy Luke, and many more. Watch the first trailer and get more details after the jump.
