LOS ANGELES, California — Warner Bros. Pictures is pleased to announce that an agreement has been reached between Joel Silver Productions and Warner Bros. Pictures to commence shooting the highly anticipated VERONICA MARS movie with Kristen Bell (FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL, WHEN IN ROME, HEROES) set to star.
A Warner Bros. Picture Production, VERONICA MARS is produced by Joel Silver, and based on the popular television series of the same name that ran on UPN and later the CW from 2004-2007.
“Kristen Bell is one of the most gifted actresses working today and we’re thrilled that she, alongside MARS mastermind Rob Thomas have agreed to continue the story they started.” Silver said.
“After ending the series in the unfortunate manner in which we did, I’m thrilled to be able to return to Neptune and give fans the resolution they so richly deserve.” Elaborated Thomas.
“I loved Veronica right off the bat and am thrilled to be given another chance to tell her story. Veronica was so strong and I think it is so important because there are so few shows, and now movies, that portray women, especially young women as being strong and being able to stand up for themselves.” Said Bell.
The screenplay by Rob Thomas will find Veronica back in college for her senior year as she balances books, boys and a mystery unlike she has ever faced before.
Also onboard are original cast members Percy Daggs III, Jason Dohring, Francis Capra, Ryan Hansen, Tina Majorino and Enrico Colantoni
VERONICA MARS: The Movie will be filmed on location in San Diego beginning in early May and will be released in Spring 2010 by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
