In 2013, Thomas, Bell, and most of the series original cast put their support behind a Kickstarter campaign to fund a Veronica Mars movie. We're told the arrangement will allow Bell to appear on the new series despite her commitments to NBC's The Good Place.
In an era where anything from Murphy Brown to The Hills can get a revival series, is it really that surprising that a much-loved though short-lived show like Veronica Mars is next in line for a return? The series was unceremoniously canceled, leaving fans with an unsatisfactory ending that saw Veronica's father (Enrico Colantoni) lose the sheriff's election and Veronica walk solemnly off into the rain by herself. There are some shows that last for many more seasons with much higher ratings than Veronica Mars that don't get the chance to turn into a movie and/or a revival so this exciting news is truly awesome. Veronica would work on cases around Neptune while also trying to solve larger crimes, like the murder of her best friend, Lilly Kane. Although no other details of the cast/crew have been revealed yet, it's thrilling to know the man who brought us such an entertaining series and the woman who leads the cast will be back for it! The beloved show that only aired from 2004 to 2007 is apparently returning for just eight episodes but it's definitely more than the fans and production could have hoped.
Danny Boyle exits James Bond film
He had always been in MGM and Eon's sights to board a James Bond movie, dating back to 2012's " Skyfall " and 2015's " Spectre ". The team behind the upcoming James Bond 25 movie have announced a big change: Danny Boyle will no longer serve as director.
Thomas and Bell last worked together when they produced a feature film version of Veronica Mars that was released in 2014. He called Bell on the spot to check on the status of the project.
"[Creator] Rob [Thomas] and I are sort of in constant contact about when we could do it again".
It's happening! Finally! Veronica Mars isn't so dead, after all.
