The Arrested Development movie was a hot topic at this month's TCA press tour, but it wasn't the only TV-to-film adaptation on reporters' minds. When Rob Thomas turned up to talk about his forthcoming Cupid, he also entertained some questions about the future of Veronica Mars — and what he said was mostly good news for fans.
With Cupid's episode order cut from 13 to eight, Thomas said he now finds himself with "a couple months to write the Veronica Mars movie." But that doesn't get it onto screens: "Somebody else had to pay for it," he said. "[Executive producer] Joel Silver does have a certain pile of money that he can decide on and he called me asking if we — you know, can we do this now? So I know that Kristin [Bell] wants to do it. I want to do it. Joel wants to do it, and now I suddenly find myself with enough time to write that script."
As for what the project would entail, Thomas was pretty quiet about any plot details — but he did say the story wouldn't follow the Veronica-in-the-FBI path they'd explored for a possible season four. Instead, he said "it would open just days before her college graduation, so Veronica would be just at the end of her college career."
In addition to Kristen Bell, Thomas said, he's also talked to Jason Dohring and Enrico Colantoni about the film. A while back, the majority of you said you'd love to see a Veronica Mars movie, but are you still feeling that way almost two years after the end of the show?
