  Thomas depressed about Mars movie
Posted by: Mike on Mar 25th, 2009 Leave a Comment »

PopCrunch interviewed Rob Thomas this morning, about his new television series “Party Down”, and they asked him how his pitch to Joel Silver about the “Veronica Mars” movie went.

His response

While the pitch went well and I don’t think the movie’s dead, right now it’s looking depressing, I think honestly if we would have had the pitch ready a year earlier, it would be a go project. The hope that we would get a quick greenlight didn’t materialize. This is the least optimistic I’ve felt in a while.

In response to why he wanted to make the movie, he said it was because of how fans reacted to the series finale, and says

It’s one of the reasons I wanted to do the movie. There was so much debate as to how we would end season three since it could have been our last episode. But truthfully, I didn’t want to make it any easier for them to cancel us. I didn’t want to give them that nice happy ‘ahhh’ feeling.




  Veronica Mars movie update

Rob Thomas, writer/creator of “Veronica Mars” the TV series, is working on the movie, as you know.

The good news is, he’s pitched it to Joel Silver, and there’s good news. Joel loved it.

In a recent interview with Thomas, he had this to say:

I pitched it to Joel Silver, he seemed to really like the pitch. Waiting to hear whether he can get The Powers That Be at Warner Bros. to take a chance on it. If they say no, we’re out of luck, as the studio owns the rights. There’s really nowhere else I can take it.

That’s good news, or bad news, depending how Warner Brothers takes it.  Hopefully they green light it. After all, it seems in recent past, they’ll approve anything, no matter how craptastic it may be.




  Veronica Mars Movie Being Written
Posted by: Mike on Jan 23rd, 2009 Leave a Comment »

We brought you news a few months ago that “Veronica Mars” creator Rob Thomas said he “wanted” to write a Veronica Mars movie.

News broke on Wednesday afternoon that Thomas’ new show for ABC was cut down from 13 episodes to 8.  When asked what he’d do with the extra time, Thomas replied

What that means for me is that I have a couple of months to write the Veronica Mars movie, I suddenly find myself with enough time to write that script. That’s the next project

He goes on to say that he’s got the story about 70 percent worked out in his head, but he’s not sure where Veronica will go after she graduates college.

When asked who’ll finance the movie, Thomas said

Joel Silver does have a certain pile of money that he can decide on, and he called me asking, ‘Can we do this now?

For us Veronica Mars fans, this good news. The TV series was far too short lived, and canceled before its prime.  I’m hoping the movie will wrap up the somewhat open ended TV series.




  Veronica Mars Movie “Top Priority”

 hspace=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.




  Daily News Interview with Kristen Bell

Forgetting Sarah Marshall star Kristen Bell spoke with The New York Daily News about auditioning for the role, and playing Sarah Marshall without making her a bitch. She said Jason Segel wrote the part without making Sarah Marshall the bad guy – he gave the audience a chance to like her, even though she dumped our main character.

She also talks about filming the opening nude scene with Jason Segel. She says that Segel was naked for a full two days of shooting and that,

At one point, there was a nylon sock involved,” Bell says. “That just drew more attention to the situation, so we ditched it.

She also talks about the scene in which Show Spoilers

  Veronica Mars Movie?!
Posted by: Christine on Apr 9th, 2008 Leave a Comment »

Veronica Mars MovieOk, so it’s only a lot of talk from Mars star Kristen Bell, but even the fleeting suggestion that there might be a chance for fans to see Veronica in action again makes my heart all a-flutter. And I only caught the show once it was over and on DVD.

MovieHole’s interview with Kristen goes over her time on Veronica Mars, her voiceover work on Gossip Girl, and the potential Veronica Mars movie.

When asked about the movie rumor she says, “I’ve heard the same thing. I know that Rob Thomas holds Veronica Mars so dear to his heart. He did for five or six years, ten years almost, before he even wrote it as a pilot.”

She also says that she’s game for it, whenever Thomas has the time. I’m sure Percy Daggs III (aka Wallace Fennell) would be in too, considering he’s now doing Orbit commercials.




  Kristen Bell in New Romantic Comedy
Posted by: Christine on Feb 11th, 2008 Leave a Comment »

Kristen Bell is AdorableAs someone who just started watching “Veronica Mars” on DVD, I can say that Kristen Bell is infectiously adorable. Needless to say, I’m excited to see her in the upcoming Forgetting Sarah Marshall (of which the trailer looks hilarious) as the ex-girlfriend who has moved on, and now she’ll be starring in the romantic comedy When In Rome.

Rope of Silicon has more of the details on the plot, which includes Bell’s character stealing magic coins from a fountain in Rome. I’d say it sounds cheesy, but compared to a teenage private detective investigating her best friend’s murder (which is fantastic), it’s not that far-fetched.

No release date yet, but Rope of Silicon says it should start shooting in April.
