Rob Thomas isn’t being overly coy with fans when it comes to the plot of the new Veronica Mars movie, which is probably for the best since 57,257 fans (so far) are paying for that movie to exist.  Thomas has previously hinted that the new film will involve Veronica’s 10-year high school reunion, and in a recent interview with TV Line, he confirmed that will be the setting since that allows him to bring back as many characters as possible.

Hit the jump for other details on the film including what Veronica has been up to since we last saw her, the boyfriend she’ll be bringing to Neptune, characters who won’t be coming back, and more.

veronica-mars-tv-posterSpeaking to TV Line, Thomas says that Veronica transferred from Hearst College to Stanford after freshman year, got her degree, and then went to Columbia Law School.  She’s occasionally come back to Neptune to visit her dad Keith (Enrico Colantoni), Mac (Tina Majorino), and Wallace (Percy Daggs III), but Veronica hasn’t worked a PI case in nine years because “she ruined her dad’s chance for re-election and she decided that that path had caused too much chaos in her life.”  Thomas reveals that “when we meet her in the movie she’s sort of like where Tom Cruise was in the beginning of The Firm. She’s between having graduated and taken the bar and she’s interviewing at various law firms in New York.”

 

When Veronica does come back to Neptune, she won’t be alone.  Thomas says she’ll have a boyfriend.  He wouldn’t reveal if it’s an old or new character, but Thomas did say that the beau won’t be Logan (Jason Dohring), “who she hasn’t seen in nine years.”

Other quick notes:

  • Backup and Lilly aren’t coming back because they’re dead.
  • The movie won’t go into older cases. “I want to make the movie accessible for people who haven’t watched Veronica Mars before,” says Thomas. “All you need to know is that Veronica was a teenage private eye and she’s given it up. And there will be a moment early in the movie that will bring her back to Neptune and make her give being a private detective one more shot.”
  • The father-daughter relationship between Veronica and Keith will be a “big theme”.
  • They’re shooting for a PG-13 rating.
  • Veronica won’t die.  Thomas says he hopes that this isn’t the end of the character, but hopefully a new birth that may lead to a sequel, new season, or some other kind of continuation.
