Veronica Mars is back on the case in this latest shot from the movie set.

Kristen Bell is reprising the role that helped launch her career with the film, which is funded by fans via a Kickstarter campaign.

The "Veronica Mars" movie is shooting in Los Angeles and picks up years after viewers last saw the character on The CW in 2007.

"In the nine years that have taken place in her life since then, she has not worked a case. In fact, she transferred from Hearst College to Stanford and then from Stanford to Columbia Law School and, as we see her again, she's starting to interview for jobs at big law firms in New York. She just got out of Columbia," series creator Rob Thomas, who's writing and directing the movie, told HuffPost TV in March. "We learn that not only has she not worked a case since then, she's not seen Logan since then. She's certainly kept up with Wallace [Percy Daggs III] and Mac [Tina Majorino] and she sees her dad [Keith, played by Enrico Colantoni] as much as she can, but for the most part, she's put Neptune in the rear view mirror. There's something around page 10 of the movie that's going to bring her back to Neptune. It's like a 'Godfather 3' story: No matter how much she thinks she's out, she's going to get pulled back in."

The "Veronica Mars" movie started production in mid-June and is scheduled to be released in the first quarter of 2014. In addition to Bell, series stars Tina Majorino, Percy Daggs III, Jason Dohring, Chris Lowell, Ryan Hansen, Enrico Colantoni and Francis Capra will all reprise their roles for the film. Several supporting players who appeared throughout the show, like Krysten Ritter, will also make their way back to the fictional town of Neptune, California.

Ritter, who starred in two seasons of "Don't Trust The B----- In Apt. 23" on ABC, tweeted photos from the "Veronica Mars" movie set with "Freaks & Geeks" and "Party Down" star Martin Starr, who also tweeted a picture. Request for confirmation about his role was not immediately returned. Thomas co-created "Party Down" and several actors have appeared in both "Veronica Mars" and "Party Down" including Hansen, Ken Marino, Jane Lynch and Adam Scott.
