Veronica Mars - Logan Echolls

With coffers stuffed by more than double its initial $2 million Kickstarter fundraising goal, the Veronica Mars movie project has finally begun casting characters other than, well, Veronica Mars. Jason Dohring has officially signed on to reprise the role of wealthy bad boy Logan Echolls, becoming the second returning actor (after lead Kristen Bell) to join the project.

There was never much doubt Dohring would return, especially after he showed up in the pitch video for Kickstarter. (Enrico Colantoni and Ryan Hansen also appeared, but neither has been set as of yet.) But it’s still great to hear, not least because Logan is central to the film’s plotline. Hit the jump to keep reading.

Veroncia Mars

If you’re one of the 60,000 or so backers of the Veronica Mars movie project, you’re probably starting to get a little curious about what your money’s actually going to buy. Sure, we know it’ll be a feature film featuring Neptune’s sharpest P.I., ten years out of high school. But which of her old friends and nemeses will we see? How much sex and violence can we anticipate? Is this the end of Veronica’s journey, or just the beginning?

Series creator Rob Thomas has all the answers, and while he’s not ready to give everything away he’s happy to drop a few hints. And he may slip a few more in a Twitter live chat tomorrow morning. Hit the jump to learn the latest details on the project, and get more info on the Twitter event.

It took Rob Thomas and Kristen Bell several years to get as far as a Kickstarter campaign for the long-awaited Veronica Mars movie sequel, and fans less than twelve hours to scrape together the necessary $2 million budget. Now, just as promised, Warner Bros. has officially greenlit the movie. All that’s left for us at this point is the waiting. By Thomas’ own estimates, Veronica Mars won’t hit theaters for another year or so.

On the plus side, though, that means there’s plenty of time to revisit the original series before picking back up with the Neptune crowd. Hit the jump to find out where you can stream it online for free. Plus, learn more about how exactly Warner Bros. plans to make the movie.
