Exclusive: Bell, Thomas Orbit 'Veronica Mars' Movie
Aug 19, 2008, 11:47 AM | by Michael Ausiello

Yeah, yeah, okay, so it would've been kinda cool to be in Beijing last week when Michael Phelps won his record-shattering eighth gold medal. But it would've been even cooler to have had a ringside seat in Rob Thomas' office instead: At around the same time the man from Atlantis was making the splash heard 'round the world, the creator of Veronica Mars was sitting down with his beloved, lamented series' star, Kristen Bell, to discuss bringing the cult hit to the big screen.

Seriously.

The impromptu pow-wow took place last week in the offices of Thomas' Hollywood-based production company, which just so happens to be located on the same lot where Bell is shooting Heroes. "Kristen and I ran into each other, and we did discuss a Veronica movie," confirms Thomas, who says he has also had "a few conversations" with Mars executive producer Joel Silver.

"It's very tough to focus on it right now with two pilots on my plate," adds Thomas of his two ABC projects, a reworking of his '90s dramedy, Cupid, and an adaptation of the New Zealand series, Outrageous Fortune. "But as soon as I have any free time, that's my top priority."

For her part, Bell considers it a "major compliment" that people are still interested in Mars. "[Fans] still ask me all the time if the show's coming back. Emotionally, I don't want to think about Veronica Mars every day because it really does make me sad."

Regarding her recent chat with Thomas about a Mars feature, the star of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, perhaps not wanting to jinx things, flashes a Cheshire cat grin and says, "We'll see."

Translation: We're halfway there to getting this thing greenlit! Now let's take care of the other half by turning the comments section into a makeshift petition. Do you want to see a VM feature? Register your support below! (Additional reporting by Jeff Jensen)

If it's up to the quality of the first two seasons, yes.

If it's like the craptacular third season, I couldn't care less.

Ditto. I've never seen a show go down in quality so much and so fast as VM did (Well, maybe Alias......). Season 1 was one of my favorite best television shows, maybe ever. I couldn't even finish season 3.

I think I watched a couple episodes in Season 3, but hated it.

As for Alias, I liked it all. Season 4 dipped in quality, but it was still watchable. Season 5 brought it back up.

I hated season 3 as well, but I'll give Rob Thomas the benefit of the doubt for the movie.

Neither have I.

However, I do have DVD's, and they will be watched. I just have no idea when.

It's probably the FBI concept he had that pilot for on the S3 DVD.

I liked that, though.

Having said that, with a film he's free to do what he wants, rather than be bullied by the CW into dropping the darker plots and making the show more teen-demographic friendly. Also the FBI thing was a last-ditch attempt to save the show.

I did too, but if we get a movie it's important that as well as Veronica there are roles for Keith, Logan, Wallace and Weevil.
