Veronica Mars to get movie treatment

First there was the talk of an Arrested Development movie, then Sex and the City was released. Now, it appears that another television show will get the big screen treatment: Veronica Mars.
Itchy journalists watching Rob Thomas present his Cupid remake had to ask: Is there going to be a Veronica Mars movie?

Yes! Thomas reported that he and Mars star Kristen Bell are both in: "For me, that's the next project [after Cupid]. But my writing it is really just half the battle," he said. "Somebody has to pay for it." Thomas indicated that producer Joel Silver is ready to green-light the film. Coupled with Thomas' obvious enthusiasm for the project, perhaps we won't have to wait too long to see a big-screen continuation of the story of the teen detective.
It's about time, too, as the show did not recieve the proper closure that it needed. That happens when a show does not get renewed and the series then starts getting thrown around on the schedule.
