Kirsten Bell is a sweetheart! Not only she totally supports a "Veronica Mars" movie project, but she says she'll be happy to finance it herself! "I absolutely would [finance the film]...but it's a business and the sad truth is that they're not going to relinquish the rights to something and let us do it," Bell explained. “We really have to do it with them because they own it.”
The script for the movie has been penned by series creator Rob Thomas, but the project has never seen the light of day due partly to the fact that Warner Bros does not believe they would get their investment back The show, which was cancelled in 2007 due to low ratings, have always had a loyal fan base and the rumours of a possible movie to tie up storylines has been mentioned for years now.
Bell is committed to getting this movie done and she seems determined to do so: "So my duty, because I wanted this movie made from the minute our show got canceled, is to a) do it before I’m 40; and b) to prove to Warner Bros. that there is an audience.”
I can't imagine many stars out there who would be so humble and honest about this as Kirsten Bell is. "Veronica Mars" was an original show, with some of the best writing in television and unfairly treated by the audience. I still can't believe there are so many awful shows that seem to go on forever while this one got the axe so soon, without enough time to tie up loose ends. Fans deserve closure.
So, what is your opinion in all of this? Would you go see a "Veronica Mars" movie?
