Staff WriterVeronica Mars movie, one did not make the cut, namely Veronica Mars’ pit bull, Backup. This is not by choice however; co-writer and director Rob Thomas explained at the South by Southwest Film Festival that it would have been logistically impossible to include the loyal pooch. “I did the math on big dogs. Um. It wasn't pretty.” After a groan from the crowd, Thomas added, “I just feel bad now. I did consider having a Backup photo that Veronica would look at wistfully.” Other than that point, the film seemed to be a hit at the Festival, giving the Kickstarter backers the perfect reward for their donations, acknowledging that this project would not have happened if they had not contributed. When discussing the donations and where the money went, Thomas said, “For $6 million, we shot an incredibly ambitious film. There are smart ways to do a $6 million film, and this was not it. For $6 million, you can shoot four locations and eight actors and not have hundreds of extras. We bit off a huge movie: 60 speaking roles, 35 locations, action pieces.” Kristen Bell, who portrays the titular character Veronica Mars, added, “This is such an extra special experience, because it's so humbling to know that the reason we're here is because of you guys, because of all of our Kickstarter friends. We don't take that on lightly -- that you guys are the financial reason the movie got made. So we're just really flattered and overjoyed to be here. We really hope you liked it.” So get ready Marshmallows, with the official release date approaching, it is almost time for your dreams since the cancellation of the show back in 2007 to come true. But if you cannot wait for March 14th, you can watch the first two minutes of the film here!
