‘Veronice Mars’ goes to the Movies
Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello has been one of the biggest supporters of Veronica Mars, the three season CW semi-hit that always had more buzz than ratings. It did turn Kristen Bell into a star and helped creator Rob Thomas land additional work such as a revival of his Cupid for ABC.
Ausiello has been covering the growing rumors that a Veronica Mars feature film might happen and now it seems to be closer to a reality. Producer Joel Silver, also a fan of the show, has gotten Warner Bros. interested in the notion of a movie version. Thomas would write the feature for Silver and Bell has also indicated she’d happily return as the student turned sleuth.
When Thomas tried a Hail Mary attempt at a fourth season, he posited Veronica would have been recruited to work for the FBI. For the movie, though, he’d send her to college and deal with a big campus mystery.
We here at ComicMix are also fans and will be keeping an eye on developments.
