In other TV series-to-film news, Entertainment Weekly is reporting that the chances of Veronica Mars being made into a film are essentially zero. According to Michael Ausiello, series star Kristen Bell said, "I don't think it will ever happen, and here's why: [Series creator] Rob Thomas and I had a powwow, and we were both 100 percent on board. We took our proposal to Warner Bros. and Joel Silver told us that there is no enthusiasm [there] to make a Veronica Mars movie, and that is unfortunately a roadblock we cannot compete with."
Veronica Mars aired for 3 seasons on The CW (formerly UPN). The series, set in the wealthy coastal community of Neptune, California, starred Kristen Bell as the title character, a smart, fearless 17-year-old apprentice private investigator dedicated to solving her town's toughest mysteries. All 3 seasons can be purchased individually on DVD; Veronica Mars: The Complete Series on DVD is also available.
Full episodes of the 2nd season can be watched online at TheWB.com through July 27, 2009, after which the 3rd season episodes will be available.
