In a somewhat surprising turn of events, Twin Sister singer Andrea Estella is the newest entrant in the upcoming Veronica Mars movie.

Estella's band was reportedly going to have a role in the film anyway, according to director Rob Thomas (not that Rob Thomas). But now that actress Leighton Meester (who had a bit part in the series during its short run) is unavailable for filming, Thomas has enlisted Estella for her role.

Luckily for Estella, she's been a fan of the project—which was famously funded on Kickstarter last year—for some time. “It’s the exact kind of show I would get obsessed with,” she said. “So it’s been a bit of dream to be in a movie, especially being a messed-up rock princess. How could I say no? I think the VM fans are going to be very happy!”

The movie is slated for release some time next year.
