Neptune High, Class of 2014

So this is really a thing:

edit: The Veronica Mars Movie Project

What exactly is is it, you may ask?
Wikipedia wrote:
The series is set in the fictional town of Neptune, California, and stars Kristen Bell as the title character, a student who progresses from high school to college while moonlighting as a private investigator under the tutelage of her detective father. In each episode, Veronica solves a different stand-alone case while working to solve a more complex mystery. The first two seasons of the series each had a season-long mystery arc, introduced in the first episode of the season and solved in the season finale. The third season took a different format, focusing on smaller mystery arcs that would last the course of several episodes.

But really, I'm sure everyone stopped reading at:

Let us gather together to discuss the return of high school detective noir, a $2mil kickstarter, and Kristen Bell.

    Kristen Bell is pretty great

    but she couldn't hold a candle to JGL in a noir-off

    or a dance-off for that matter.

    I won't lie, I went and double checked to make sure this wasn't sarcastically pointing out a typo in the OP.

    I believe it is just to prove there's demand for a movie. WB, theoretically, would fill in some gaps once they greenlight it.

    I thought the synopsis said it was a crime thriller that was literally set in Neptune

    It sounded a lot more exciting than what it actually is

    The video they put together for the kickstarter was filmed last February. Like, 2012. So I guess they've put some thought into this.

    Does it throw anybody else off when a 30+ year old man or woman portrays high school students

    Or is it just me?

    well she'd be playing a 28 year old in the movie since it'd be a ten year high school reunion

    That makes sense

    But I mean like in Varsity Blues, most of the people are mid twenties and I guess you can get away with that but Billy Bob was nearly 30 when that came out

    And it's weird cause I check ID's and I see people born in 1992 and they look like they're almost 30 but then people my age look barely legal and this is inane musings brought to you by DL.

    It's kind of funny, I'm losing my ability to differentiate age I think. Everyone at college looks like high school kids to me. Granted some are fresh out of high school, but even seniors and some in graduate school just look so young.

    Then again I turn 30 this year and people always assume I'm barely 18/19, so who am I to talk.

    I pass by the high school every day on the way to work, usually as it's letting out

    Most of the kids walking out of there I'm just like

    What the fuck, are you 8 years old?

    the kickstarter hit a million in 4 hours, which is apparently a record

  • LTMLTM Registered User regular

    She and Rob Thomas have been pulling for it for a long time. As have the fans, but WB needed some proof that it would sell.

    I'm pretty sure they originally pitched the movie right after the series ended.
