The Veronica Mars Movie has allegedly added James Franco to the cast of the Warner Bros. film.
Franco will be reprising the role of himself in The Veronica Mars Movie where he will play the victim of a celebrity targeted scheme according to Zap2it. Apparently the perpetrator films celebrities in their homes and attempts to sell the resulting videos. This sounds like a case for Veronica (Kristen Bell) to solve. Perhaps Logan (Jason Dohring) will be targeted as well?
The news has not been confirmed by executive producer Rob Thomas or The Veronica Mars Movie Twitter or Facebook account, but Thomas recently pleaded for fans not to reveal spoilers or guest appearances before the film. Who else do you think might be a celebrity victim in the film?
Franco recently played himself in This is the End, the apocalyptic comedy with Seth Rogen and Jonah Hill. He is also slated to direct The Sound and the Fury. Playing himself in The Veronica Mars Movie seems to be up his alley, especially if he is a fan of the original UPN and CW series.
Are you excited to see James Franco in The Veronica Mars Movie? Will you be at Comic Con to see the cast talk about the Kickstarter project?
The Veronica Mars Movie panel is July 19 at 11:15 AM in Hall H at Comic-Con.
