Kristen Bell as teen detective Veronica Mars.
After being cancelled in 2007, Veronica Mars, the cult-classic teen drama about a sharp-tongued high school detective starring Kristen Bell, is back! No, not as a series, but a movie.
Yesterday, the show’s creator, Rob Thomas, and Bell announced plans for a Kickstarter campaign to fund the film via crowdsourcing. Thomas had made attempts in the past to create a full-length feature following the show’s abrupt ending while in its third season, but the production company Warner Bros. wasn’t convinced. Now, five years after the show was pulled off the air, Thomas, Bell and a few other cast members have decided to take matters into their own (and fans’) hands.
