'Veronica Mars' movie could get sequel, says creator Rob Thomas
Thomas says at the end of the film 'there will be an opportunity for Veronica to do her thing again'
The Veronica Mars movie might not be a one-off, the show's creator Rob Thomas has hinted.
Last Wednesday (March 13), Thomas and the show's star Kristen Bell launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the film, which the pair have been keen to make ever since Veronica Mars got cancelled in 2007. If fans pledged $2 million (£1.34 million) by April 12, Veronica Mars: The Movie would go into production this summer and get a release early next year (2014).
The project reached its goal in just 11 hours and, at the time of writing, over $3.7 million (£2.4 million) has been raised from more than 57,000 separate backers. Warner Bros has since given the film a green light and shooting will take place this summer.
Now Thomas has revealed that the film could lead to more Veronica Mars adventures in the future. He told TVLine: "Veronica will survive the movie. I can't promise anyone else does though. But there will be an opportunity for Veronica do to her thing again."
When asked if he is envisioning a sequel or even an entire new season of the show on Netflix, Thomas replied: "I'd be lying if I didn't say I didn't think of those things. I am hopeful it is the birth of [much more] Veronica Mars."
Created and executive produced by Thomas, Veronica Mars starred Bell as a high schooler and then college student who moonlights as a private investigator. The show premiered in 2004 and ran for three seasons before US network The CW chose not to renew it, but the idea of reviving the show for a full-length film refused to die.
