The film was funded in part by a Kickstarter campaign in 2013, which reached the fastest growing campaign with $2 million dollars, and the highest campaign in the film Kickstarter category, with Warner Brother’s funding the balance. The film focuses on the characters of “Veronica Mars” ten years later, just in time for their high school reunion. Bell, now a lawyer, comes back to her hometown to help old flame Logan Echolls, Jason Dohring, who has been accused of murder.
“Veronica Mars” was an early 2000’s show, which starred Kristen Bell as the title character. The show followed Bell’s character in the town of Neptune, Calif. and the misadventures that occurred. The show went on for three seasons, and was nominated for various awards, such as the Teen Choice Awards. The show won an AFI USA Award in 2006. The show also starred Percy Daggs III, as Wallace, Veronica’s best friend, and Tina Majorino as Veronica’s friend Mac.
Amanda has been acting in TV & film since she was 12, where she co-starred in her first role in Danielle Steel’s TV Movie FULL CIRCLE. She co-starred on several TV series such as CITY GUYS, THAT 70’s SHOW, 7th HEAVEN, and had a recurring role on DAYS OF OUR LIVES.
Some of Amanda’s other accomplishments include the MICK JAGGER CONCERT, music videos for Marilyn Manson “TAINTED LOVE,” and Rob Zombie “NEVER GONNA STOP.” They both were shown on MTV/VH1. She was featured on a vocal recording of TWISTA with STING titled “STOLEN CAR.” Amanda was cast as the lead for the original promotional campaign for the famous AMERICAN IDOL show!
