'Veronica Mars' the Movie Geared Up for Pitch - Featured

A "Veronica Mars" update has been thrown in by series creator Rob Thomas. Having rejected the rumored plot that Kristen Bell's Veronica Mars may end up at the F.B.I. earlier, the 43-year-old told Entertainment Weekly that he is prepping to pitch the feature film project to Warner Bros. and producer Joel Silver.

"I'm preparing the pitch now - literally now," Thomas revealed his plan on Monday, February 9. "I hope to go in and talk to [executive producer] Joel Silver and [Warner Bros.] in the next week or two to see if they're interested."

While sharing out his pitching plan, the screenwriter noted that he is still working on the script. "I haven't figured it out yet," he said of the end plot. "That's what I'm working on now. It's close. A few key details left to solve."

Meanwhile, on the hurdles he has to go through for this movie, Thomas acknowledged, "I have some fear that Veronica Mars fans believe that the chief hurdle in getting the movie made is my writing it. Unfortunately, that's only one of several hurdles. I'm going to give it my best shot and let the chips fall where they may."

"It's entirely possible I won't have an answer at the end of the pitch," he further continued. "They will want to consider [the pitch], look at some numbers - whatever it is people on the business side do - and then they'll give me some sort of response. Then, if they want to move forward, there's the deal-making that'll need to go on."

"Veronica Mars" was a TV series about a high school student moonlighting as a private investigator in her father's own private investigation agency. She is initially pulled to the detective world when her best friend was murdered. Following the titular character starred by Kristen Bell from high school to college, the series was premiered on September 22, 2004 and ended on May 22, 2007.

Best high school show ever. "My So-called Life" and "Freaks an Geeks" (shows I'm in love with) can't even compare.It's got a main character that's seen as a mean bitch and an uncool outcast by all her peers. Her principal hates her, her old friends thinks she's betrayed them and she's the girl that none of the local parents will let their kids play with.Yet as a viewer she comes across as the smartest, wittiest, coolest (and oddly fairly moral) teenager/person ever (at least in the history of television).She manages to be cool, and be selfsufficient, in all the best ways. She is one of the boldest female leads ever, because she always seems so very human, even while she manages to be the single coolest person ever. She kicks ass, even though she has a cop-dad (and some fairly doubtful biker-buddies) to back her up if need be. Her back up persons rarely -if ever- has to come to the rescue, while she saves their collective asses numerous times. Believably. That's just amazing.
Even if the movie doesn't get made, I'm so happy that the parties involved with Veronica, must have loved the show in some of the same ways that we fans do, if they're still going at it today. That makes me so happy. So many thanks from here to Rob Thomas. If for nothing else - then for making my day! HUZZAH!
