Screenwriter Rob Thomas has stayed true to his words on the big screen treatment for "Veronica Mars". Having claimed earlier that he will develop the series for a movie as soon as he has time, the "Cupid" creator confirmed to iF Magazine that he is working on the film project now that his new series order has been reduced.

"That means I have time to write the VERONICA MARS movie," he said explaining the advantage of the cut down of the series order. "But my writing the movie is half the battle. Someone else has to pay for it. Joel Silver does have a certain pile of money. He called on me saying 'Can we do this now?' Kristen [Bell] wants to do it. Joel wants to do it and I want to do it. For me, that's the next project."

On the storyline, the 43-year-old confessed that he's been struggling to figure out one point on the plot. "'s 70 percent broken in my head," he stated. "I've been struggling with this one plot point and I'm hopeful to figure that out. I watched the final episode of the series a few weeks ago and there were a lot of gaps and the plotting for the original came to me. I mean for the movie, I'm feeling like I'm on the right track now. But I don't want to give that away yet."

Furthermore, he dished on the possibility of Mars ending up at the F.B.I. "The one thing that I will say is where it will pick up," Thomas explained. "I know we did that F.B.I. 'what if' thing, but we would not go to that place. I think it would open just days before the Hearst College Graduation. So Veronica would be sort of at the end of her college career."

"Veronica Mars" was a TV series about a high school student moonlighting as a private investigator in her father's own private investigation agency. She is initially pulled to the detective world when her best friend was murdered. Following the titular character starred by Kristen Bell from high school to college, the series was premiered on September 22, 2004 and ended on May 22, 2007.

I love Veronica Mars...I just found it on netflix and watched every episode in about a week. I just loved it and know there is no fourth season makes me sad. There definitely wasn't any closure and a show like VM needs some kind of closure even thought I would rather it just go on forever. I really hope that I will see the Veronica Mars movie soon!

This is great news! I only recently found the show on Netflix and I fell in love with it. I was so disappointed about the lack of closure offered by the final season. Whoever made the final decision to pull the plug on this witty and wonderful show made a huge mistake. :( TV doesn't have enough shows like this--well written, with believable and lovable characters, and a dynamite cast. I sooo hope this isn't just rumor. I would pay double the price just to see a Veronica Mars movie.

My cousin went to prom with Kristin Bell. She's a cutie. Can't wait to see her 25 feet tall on the big screen. Veronica Mars was one of the smartest shows on TV.
