‘Veronica Mars’ movie in development? Cancelled cult TV show ‘Veronica Mars’ may be returning in big screen format. The show’s creator Rob Thomas told reporters that he discussed the idea last week with it’s leading lady Kristen Bell, who played the private investigator title character in three seasons until the show was axed in May 2007. “Kristen and I ran into each other – and we did discuss a Veronica movie,” he revealed. Thomas also added that he had “a few conversations with Joel Silver”, who was the executive producer on the show. Bell is currently filming the third season of Heroes.
