Veronica Mars: Rob Thomas Gives a Movie Update

Veronica MarsVeronica Mars ran for three seasons; two on UPN and the last on the CW. The show revolves around a young teen detective who solves both large and small cases. The series stars Kristen Bell in the title role and also features the talents of Percy Daggs III, Jason Dohring, Francis Capra, Enrico Colantoni, Ryan Hansen, Teddy Dunn, Michael Muhney, Tina Majorino, and Brandon Hillock.

Shortly after the CW cancelled Veronica Mars, series creator Rob Thomas said that he wanted to continue the show’s story as a movie. Bell was on board, as was show executive producer Joel Silver. Unfortunately, the project hasn’t been made and it doesn’t look like that’s going to change.

At the recent TCA press tour, Futon Critic’s Brian Ford Sullivan asked Thomas about the movie. He said, “I would write it if anyone would finance it. If anyone’s interested in making that movie I am available, Kristen’s [Bell] available. I would love to do it. I think the closest we came was Joel [Silver] pushing it at Warner Bros. and they didn’t bite. It has sort of gone away.”

Thomas also mentioned that Bell misspoke when, in a previous interview, she said that he had a script ready to go. He said, “I have a treatment, I don’t have a script. So she shouldn’t have jumped the gun on that but I am ready to write a script.”

What do you think? Do you think a Veronica Mars feature film will ever happen? Should it be a TV movie instead?

    I just watch all three seasons on netflix. I’d seen the show before and then noticed they had it on there. I wasn’t sure if the show made it past season three and i got to the end of it and figured that couldn’t be the end. I searched for something else anything but there was nothing. I just finished it a few days ago and i’m already going crazy without it. It was always interesting, and I was never dissapointed by any of the episodes. I really think it needs to continue. I realize at this point continuing the show wouldn’t work out so well with everyone aging, but a movie could work. I think everyone needs closure for this amazing show!

    Def make the movie. There was so much going on that they could’ve ran with and made the 4th season a hit. They could’ve at least done a closing episode. Not leave us hanging. I think we need closure for sure!

    Am rewatching all the seasons. Love this show. It would be great if they could revive the series with a adult veronica solving crimes and kicking some bad guy butt. I would totally watch it. Of course we’d need Logan, Weevil, Dick, Keith, and Wallace back too. They keep putting crap on T.V. and a show with all our old favorites in more adult roles would be a welcome sight.

    I just finished watching all 3 seasons on netflix. I think a movie with closure would be great. I want Veronica and Logan back together.

    They should at least make a movie if nothing else. This show ended so abruptly and I was shocked. I felt like this was one show that finally was getting increasingly better with time as opposed to getting boring. I feel like the show could have carried on for a few more seasons, but if they could cram answers into a movie I am all for it. I am dying to figure out what happens. I would go into the theater numerous times to watch this!
