Although it went off the air in 2007, Veronica Mars — the short-lived, critically acclaimed UPN/The CW series — has once again managed to keep its name in the news. Warner Brothers has actually set up an e-mail address for fans of the show to send in their requests for a film adaptation. When you send an e-mail to VeronicaMarsMovie@warnerbros.com, you’ll get this auto reply:
“Thank you for your interest in a VERONICA MARS movie. This is an automated response; due to the volume of mail we receive, we are unable to respond to individual messages, but rest assured, we are reading all of the messages we get. The fan support has been incredible, and we really appreciate your loyalty and enthusiasm towards the show.”
Creator/executive Rob Thomas spoke to TV Squad about the news:
“I was surprised as anyone that Warner Bros. set up a ‘Veronica Mars’ email address,” the show’s creator Rob Thomas told TV Squad via email. “No one has talked to me about it.”
“I was happy to see it,” Thomas said of the email. “It gives me a glimmer of hope, but I’m just like everyone else wondering, ‘What does this mean?’ I hope it means it’s under consideration, but I have no insider knowledge on that front.”
Veronica Mars, which starred Kristen Bell, aired for three seasons total: two on the now defunct UPN network (2004-2006) and its final season on The CW (2006/2007).
