With yet another casting update earlier tonight, it seemed as if our daily Veronica Mars reveal was over. But with time to catch up and only six days remaining until cameras start to roll, it’s understandable that perhaps the highly anticipated continuation would double up on some announcements. Now, two fellow Neptune High alumni complete the casting hattrick tonight as a pair of former stars have officially handed in their R.S.V.P. cards for the film’s major milestone – mediaiq.
Creator Rob Thomas announced tonight that two more have signed on to return for the Neptune High reunion – Amanda Noret, reprising her role “as uber-bitch Madison Sinclair”, and Sam Huntington, returning as “ethically-challenged Luke Haldeman.”
Noret appeared in 10 episodes of the original series, serving as Dick’s ex-girlfriend and one major piece to the first season’s major reveal regarding our title character. Huntington appeared twice, with Luke playing a role in the events as well though not intending to directly affect Veronica.
Effectively, they joins the previously cast Kristen Bell, Jason Dohring, Enrico Colantoni, Francis Capra, Percy Daggs III, Daran Norris and Chris Lowell as official cast members who have deals with Warner Brothers. Christine Lakin, who also had a guest role within the series, will return in a similar fashion at the reunion alongside the aforementioned.
Thomas will direct from a script he co-wrote with show veteran Diane Ruggerio. Various actors commiting but not official just yet include Ryan Hansen, Max Greenfield and others.
In The Veronica Mars Movie, Veronica departed Hearst College to Stanford and then from Stanford to Columbia Law School and she’s starting to interview for jobs at big law firms in New York. She’s kept in touch with Keith, Wallace, Mac and more but hasn’t seen Logan or her town of Neptune in over 10 years. However, both come calling as Logan’s pop-star girlfriend is found murdered and Logan is seen as the prime suspect, which leads him to turn to his ex-girlfriend for major help.
At the beginning of the film, Veronica will be in the arms of a boyfriend who is said to be a familiar face, but whether or not she’ll wind up back in Logan’s by film’s end remains to be seen. Dax Shepard is said to have a cameo in the film, while one major set piece in the middle of the film will be the 10 year reunion of Neptune High.
Veronica Mars is scheduled to start production on June 17th for a release in Early 2014.
Another ‘Wimpy’ Movie, Now with Poop Jokes – mediaiq
We weren’t exactly fond of the first ‘Wimpy Kid’ movie. The main character was unlikeable, in fact a good chunk of the cast was, and the only ones I enjoyed didn’t get enough screen time. As predicted in that review, a sequel has already been set in motion, and is set to release almost exactly one year after it’s predecessor. The trailer can be seen here at Yahoo! Movies.
The video makes the sequel look like more of the same schtick, just this time without Chloe Moretz and a little more Steve Zahn. Let’s face it: it’s a hardcore kids movie, and something I can’t thouroughly enjoy. Like Cats & Dogs 2.
Will you spend money to see the ‘Wimpy’ sequel, or will you (like myself) spend it elsewhere? Comments below.
