Kristen Bell Still Hoping to Make the Never-Happening Veronica Mars Movie
Poor Kristen Bell. If she would have just listened to Movieline, she'd know better than to once again resurrect the hopes and dreams of Veronica Mars fans the world over. Last night, the You Again star tweeted about the possibility of a feature film version of the long-canceled series, causing a ruckus of hashtags and Facebook groups. Seriously.
Over the course of a half-dozen dispatches, Bell stoked the fan fires:
"Mars fans - can we bug @wbpictures & tell em the must do a VM film?? New tactic. Bombard em w/tweets, there's evidence of fans they can't ignore. [...] #veronicamars fans send petitions & any obsessive behaior (sic) u have 2 @wbpictures & demand the film. they c no audience 4 it? i beg 2 differ. [...] WB says their research shows the movie wont have an audience. i disagree. currently figuring out how to show them."
That "figuring out" led to the Twitter dump, which led to a Facebook group with nearly 15,000 members and a petition signed by 7,772 loyal '09ers.
Hang on, just doing some quick math here. If every person who signed the petition saw a Veronica Mars movie and paid $12 for their ticket, the opening weekend gross would be $93,264. Huh. At least it would be bigger than Twelve.
