Is a Veronica Mars movie in the works?


Kristen Bell, better known as Sarah Marshall (some of my friends in fact believe that to be her name), spent three seasons playing Veronica Mars on UPN and later the CW. Apparently, it wasn't enough.

She still wants to bring back the teenaged private investigator, but this time to the big screen, per the Huffington Post.

"Everyone involved wants to do it, but Warner Bros. is a real stinker," Bell said. "It's a real monster of a legal system there."

Bell and her fiance Dax Shepard have been promoting their new film, "Hit and Run," which they independent made because of the hassels she's experienced in getting Mars on the big screen, according to the story. Since the series ended, Bell and series creator Rob Thomas have been trying to get the film made.

"[I]f I had the money right now to produce it, I would do it in a heartbeat," she said. "I still have hope for it. I really do. Even if she's, like, 80 when it takes place, like 'Murder, She Wrote.'"

Bell offered to finance the film in 2010, but Warner Brothers didn't bite.

"I would make time for it in a heartbeat and that's a decent part of it done, when you've cast 'Veronica Mars.' I know Rob Thomas has it in his heart to make it; this is his baby," she said. "It's not off the table for any of us. We're just still trying to champion the powers that be to believe us. The reality is, we need a few million dollars to do it and that's a lot of money. It's difficult to convince a studio to take that risk when you're proposing to them to make a movie of a television show that's been off the air for four years."

Is there really a market for this film, though? If so, why did the show leave the air?

Yes, it would be nice to see "Veronica Mars" again, even if it is only a one-time thing on the big screen.  And I wholeheartedly agree with msd85's comments...including/especially the one about the picture :-)

Yes. The fanbase is quite rabid. Why was it canceled? Because the CW is run by morons.

And that picture... Wow.
