‘Veronica Mars’ movie: Closer to reality?
The show’s star, Kristen Bell, has kept busy on the big and small screen, but she (and creator Rob Thomas) has made no secret of the fact that she would love to do a movie, tweeting her followers to bombard Warner Bros. Pictures with messages to give it the green light.
This has not gone unnoticed by the studio (which is owned by Time Warner, the owner of CNN), and last Friday they tweeted their followers to “send your film requests and petitions to VeronicaMarsMovie@warnerbros.com.”
Well, an official e-mail address is certainly a start, but the track record of success for low-rated TV series-turned-movies is spotty at best (“Serenity,” despite great reviews, was no “Star Trek” at the box office – and despite its ’90s popularity, the latest “X-Files” film was a flop).
So, whether this officially-endorsed e-mail campaign will be a success remains to be seen. At this point, it’s all up to the fans.
Would you see a “Veronica Mars” movie? Do you plan to send an e-mail petition?
