Reports that the Veronica Mars movie is in the final stages of rigor mortis have apparently been greatly exaggerated. According to the franchise’s boss, Rob Thomas, there’s still a chance his teen sleuth will be reborn on the big screen.
“It’s not dead,” insists Thomas. “I continue to want to do it. It’s funny, because the rumors go around and around. Kristen Bell had said to somebody that I had written a script, and that wasn’t correct. I did have a treatment and a pitch, with which I went to Warner Bros. and [Mars producer] Joel Silver and said, ‘Here is the fastball version of the movie, the big studio version of the movie that I think we can make.’ And I think they did one of their brand-awareness surveys and were like, ‘We don’t know if we can make money with that.’ So it’s been back-burnered. But I still want to do it. I’m still happy to do it. We’re still looking into it.”
Thomas, whose Starz comedy, Party Down, kicks off its second season on April 23, acknowledges that the project has a built-in expiration date. “There is a bit of a ticking clock [because] Kristen Bell does continue to age,” he concedes of his 29-year-old leading lady. “And doing ‘teen detective’ [is a] dicey proposition. But frankly, I think Veronica Mars as a 30-year-old noir detective at some point in the future would still be interesting to me.
“In sort of the tidal wave and roller coaster of feeling upbeat or downbeat about it,” Thomas concludes, “I’d say I’m feeling in the middle right now.”
Hey, a little hope is better than no hope, right? Now prove to Warner Bros. and Joel Silver that a return trip to Mars can be profitable by pledging your support in the comments!

Kristen Bell has revealed that she dyed her hair dark to help her look more “bad” in Burlesque.
The actress, who starred with Christina Aguilera and Cher in the movie, said that the producers asked her to colour her hair darker because she didn’t look evil enough for the role when she was blonde.
Bell told the Daily Mail: “I’m a blonde girl who goes dark to go bad. They felt my character should be brunette and bad.”
Talking about her character, she said: “I’m the girl who feels threatened by Christina. It was make-believe – I just pretended to make Christina’s life a misery.”
