Rob Thomas told Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello that "I haven’t gotten far on my Veronica Mars movie outline. I thought I had the idea broken, but I’ve hit a wall in the final act that I haven’t quite figured out. And with Cupid and Party Down occupying 80 hours a week, and a new baby boy occupying the remaining hours, I haven’t nailed it down. I’m hopeful that I can find the time to figure it out over the Christmas holidays."
Thomas is getting a rare second chance with Cupid, which we recently reported was receiving a March 24 debut on ABC. VM would also be a second chance, taking the beloved but low-rated television series to the silver screen along with star Kristen Bell.
Bell could use the work now that her character met a definitive end on Heroes this week.
“Kristen’s return was never meant to be long term,” Ausiello wrote, “so she was leaving one way or the other. But as I hinted in last week’s AA, I wasn’t expecting her exit to be so permanent. And it is permanent. Unlike 90 percent of the deaths on Heroes, this one will stick. Ironic, no?”
