There’s been talk of a big-screen adaptation of “Veronica Mars” ever since the show ended in May 2007. Sure, it enjoyed a three-year run, which is longer than most other shows that, like “Veronica Mars,” fall into that category of cult classic series whose lives are destined to be cut short before the stories can reach an emotionally fulfilling conclusion. But that’s all there’s been: talk.

But at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour —¬†which is where networks give panels and tout upcoming schedules to a room full of bitter professionals —¬†series creator Rob Thomas said that a film version of “Veronica Mars” is his next project after ABC’s “Cupid,” the upcoming series that’s a reworking of Thomas’ own 1998 comedy series starring Jeremy Piven. Thomas added, though, that writing a “Mars” film is “just half the battle. Somebody has to pay for it.” He said that series producer Joel Silver has already expressed interest in the film, but it’s ultimately still too early to start hoping for a movie. There’s no telling how long Thomas’ work on “Cupid” will occupy him, or even if the film will materialize once the series wraps or gets to a place where Thomas can leave or back-burner it to focus on the film. At any rate, it would be nice for Thomas to visit that world one more time, if only to spend more two hours in Neptune.

Ah, what the hell. Here’s one for old times’ sake:
