Enrico Colantoni Set For Veronica Mars Movie

enrico-colantoni-veronica-mars-movieVeronica Mars‘ P.I. pop is officially on board for his daughter’s big-screen debut.

Enrico Colantoni will reprise the role of Keith Mars when the movie based on the fan-favorite CW series begins shooting this summer.

The Rob Thomas-driven project announced the casting — which was hinted at with the actor’s appearance in the fan-funded project’s launch video in March — via Twitter Thursday.

Colantoni joins his former castmates Kristen Bell and Jason Dohring, who have already signed on to the project. The grassroots movie has raised nearly $6 million, thanks to pledge-happy fans who wanted to see the tiny blonde one back in action.

Since Veronica Mars was cancelled in 2007, Colantoni’s TV work has included Bones, Flashpoint and Person of Interest.

  5. Drew says:

    Awesome. There would be no Veronica Mars without Keith Mars!

    That was a stupid comment, since he’s her father. I realize that now.

  6. Tom Charles says:

    Yay! Now, can we finally get them to reveal that Meg’s death was faked?

  7. If 2 mil were enough for one 90 – 120 movie, with six they could have made three movies, like a six hr mini series. That would have been cool. More material, more story.

  8. lulu says:

    Yessssssssssss but was so obvious come on no Veronica Mars without Keith Mars !

  9. K. says:

    YAY!!!! Just please don’t kill him off and put Veronica and Logan together by the end. LoVe always….

    Loved VM until Bell became a bit more mainstream. Or maybe its being married to that douche husband of hers. Either way, a movie I once would have been stoked with has become — meh.

      sorry to hear that because 6 million dollars worth of the american people have spoken!

      • daviduter says:

        Don’t get me wrong, I will still go see the movie. Just not nearly excited as I would have been when Bell was more an unknown and I didn’t know how obnoxious she was IRL.

  11. Josh Emerson says:

    Can they please get Tina Majorino confirmed for this? I can’t picture a VM movie without Mac!

  12. Mari says:

    Without him there was no movie! I’m happy! :)

  13. bobbie says:

    Yay :)

  14. fingers crossed says:

    Okay good, now c’mon Tina.

  15. mia says:

    as if there was any doubt he would return. Enrico has been almost as vocal a supporter as Kristen.
    But still, glad to see it official!!

  16. Renee says:

    It wouldn’t be a real Veronica Mars movie if Keith Mars aka Enrico Colantoni wasn’t in it. Great news!

    I loved that moment when she found out he was really her dad! Who’s your daddy? You are!!! awww! They are the best and most believable father daughter duo ever!
