Report: James Franco Signed on for 'Veronica Mars' Movie

Franco is reportedly secured to appear as himself in the Kickstarter-funded movie, which is headlined by Kristen Bell.

AceShowbiz - "Veronica Mars" reportedly adds another familiar face to its cast ensemble. After "He's Just Not That Into You" star Justin Long confirmed to make a cameo appearance in the film, James Franco is now said to be another high-profile actor that will team up with director/writer Rob Thomas.

According to Zap2It's coverage, Oscar-nominated Franco will make an appearance in the Kickstarter-funded pic as himself. A source provides the site with more details about his role, saying that "he'll be one of several celebrities in the movie who have been victims of a hidden camera scam." Even so, the casting news is still not confirmed yet by Thomas.

The production is currently underway, and Thomas recently let Entertainment Weekly publish a photo taken from the Santa Monica Pier set. The latest image offered a first look at returning actor Ken Marino, who plays the antagonistic Vinnie Van Lowe.

"Veronica Mars" will also see the return of some other original cast members. Krysten Ritter, Tina Majorino, Chris Lowell, Jason Dohring and Max Greenfield are invited back to take part in the film.

Eyeing an early 2014 release, the big-screen version of the UPN/CW series will come to San Diego Comic-Con on Friday, July 19 to debut exclusive footage.
