Will There Be a "Veronica Mars" Movie After All?
"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.
My guess is that Thomas will continue to drag this proposition out until either he finds success elsewhere (Seth says his "Party Down" is fantastic, though I haven't gotten to it yet) or he's forced to change his pitch to a 40-year-old spinster noir detective, by which time Kristen Bell will have been beaten down so hard by the machinations of her terrible, awful fucking romantic comedies that she'll have to resort to such a movie.
But don't hold your breath, folks.
Hey, but look fellas: I won't send you away empty-handed.
