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.
