Featured News: Confirmed... A VERONICA MARS MOVIE!

Possibly the best news of the week for me... Rob Thomas has confirmed a Veronica Mars movie! Finally we will get some more of the sassiest detective ever, and some proper closure for the show. Seriously... I cannot wait!



Universal City, CA


THE SKINNY: At the tail end of this winter's television critics event, Rob Thomas, who has resurrected his 1998 TV series CUPID for another go-around on ABC, announced that hes currently working on a VERONICA MARS feature film (based on his short-lived UPN/CW show), now that his new series order has been reduced from thirteen episodes to eight episodes.



"That means I have time to write the VERONICA MARS movie," he says. "But my writing the movie is half the battle. Someone else has to pay for it. Joel Silver does have a certain pile of money. He called on me saying - "Can we do this now? Kristen wants to do it. Joel wants to do it and I want to do it. For me, that's the next project."


Although he wouldn't reveal exactly what the story would be, he did tell iF, "its 70 percent broken in my head."


"I've been struggling with this one plot point and I'm hopeful to figure that out," he adds. "I watched the final episode of the series a few weeks ago and there were a lot of gaps and the plotting for the original came to me. I mean for the movie, I'm feeling like I'm on the right track now. But I don't want to give that away yet.



In terms of cast, Thomas says hes talked with Jason Dohring, Enrico Colantoni and Kristen Bell.



"Obviously," he says with a smile.



And while there were always talks of the character of Veronica Mars ending up at the F.B.I., he says that's not where the movie will be heading.



"The one thing that I will say is where it will pick up," says Thomas. "I know we did that F.B.I. what if thing, but we would not go to that place. I think it would open just days before the Hearst College Graduation. So Veronica would be sort of at the end of her college career.



Great news!

glad to hear it, very underrated very well written show. Just off the top of my head I would say that the movie should have some plot line concerning the cain's, maybe something about duncan and the baby, and in the end jake cain finally goes down. And I am sure no VM fan would agree, but theatrically and dramatically speaking, I would have Logan die at the end in some way to save veronica. Maybe stepping in front of a bullet, something to make it more emotionally gripping. I dont think this is one where you can have them happily walk off into the sunset.

YAYAYAYAYAYAYAY - This was the BEST show that no one knew about. I bought all seasons and my ENTIRE family got hooked... We were CRUSHED when it was cancelled. I don't even want to try to predict what will happen - whatever Rob Thomas does will be genius, I am sure. !!

Although I'm slightly excited about this, I am concerned about the current trend for execs to cancel shows then decide to make a movie, although I'm happy the cast and writing people will be in place for it :)....yes you can see I'm beside myself :)

HUZZAHH!!I was friggin excited today because Fanboys coming out, and Kristen Bell's in it. I've had a countdown on it, and everything. (I'm really looking forward to it, not only because of Kristen) This is the best news!!I'm almost as happy as I was when they decided to make Serenity, and let Firefly live a little longer!As awesome as Serenity was, I'm really hoping that Rob Thomas won't take his ques from Joss Whedon and kill off some of our favorite persons (WHY would you kill off Wash!?? WHY????) But I'm happy. Yay. In my head Kristen will always be Veronica, and Veronica will always be my hero. She IS the cool beans.

I really really LOVE Veronica Mars!! It's the best show. I have been waiting for so long for them to come up with the movie but it seems like it's not going to happen! They cant leave us hanging there. This is so dam unfair ! I love Logan and Veronica an they seriously need a happy ending so that i can rest in peace. Arghh. Kristen bell stated on twitter that if we keep writing in to WB, they might cave in. Even if it takes time and many many letters, ppl dont give up. We need to fight for this marvellous show...V & L all the way!
