Yes, we’ve heard rumors of a Veronica Mars movie before, but now the news is coming from a reputable source (Entertainment Weekly) and involves quotes from the show’s creator Rob Thomas.
The Ausiello Files on EW.com says that Rob Thomas plans to work on a Mars movie as soon as time allows. Currently, he’s working on two TV pilots for ABC, but of the Veronica Mars movie he says,
As soon as I have any free time, that’s my top priority.
Star Kristen Bell (at right) has spoken before about wanting to do a movie.
Enrico Colantoni, who played Keith Mars on the show, also spoke to EW (and others) recently and said he would absolutely love to do a Mars movie (he’s currently on the totally awesome sniper show Flashpoint, CBS, Thursday at 10pm).
As a fan who was unfortunate enough to miss the series until it had already been canceled, I’d love the chance to join in the Veronica-mania if a movie finally gets made.
