Rob Thomas, the creator of Veronica Mars, sat down with his beloved, cancelled series' star, Kristen Bell, to discuss bringing the cult hit to the big screen.
The happenstance meeting took place in Thomas' office which is coincidentally located on the same lot where Bell is currently 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, referring to 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."
All Bell was willing to confirm when asked about the feature was a, 'We'll see.'
