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.
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.
