Interview with Percy Daggs IIIMy Fanbase: November 29, 2010
He talks about his time on VM and his hopes for a VM movie.
Are you still in contact with some cast members from "Veronica Mars"?
Yeah I am. Teddy Dunn, (Duncan Kane) is a very close friend of mine. We're tight. Me and KB (Kristen Bell) keep in touch from time to time through email and such, as you know she is a busy lady these days and well deserved! I'm happy for her, that's my girl...
Every now and then there are rumors about a "Veronica Mars" movie. Can you tell us about it?
I don't know much anymore. Late in 2008 and during last year I would hear that too. At the time I had talked to Rob it was fifty-fifty. As time passes my hope for it diminishes a little bit, but I would love to do it if it happens. If Rob, Joel Silver, and Kristen can get on board with it then who knows...
Reaction to the WB's VM movie email addressNovember 10, 2010
"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."
The fact that no one from the WB talked to Rob about the email and Rob has no idea what's going on is not the most inspiring of signs.
Unfortunately for this production, cash-fountain Miley Cyrus has just signed on to star in So Undercover about a "tough, street smart" kid who gets hired by the FBI to help solve a case. As a rough comparison, this is pretty much how Veronica Mars operates, although she'd now be in her 20s. So Undercover is slated for next year so all Veronica Mars fans, PLEASE send your request for a big screen adaptation to VeronicaMarsMovie@warnerbros.com ASAP and get this thing rolling before it's too late.
It is a truth universally acknowledged among die hard Veronica Mars fans that every time one ‘09er comes to terms with the fact that Neptune's favorite female super sleuth — immortalized by Kristen Bell — will have to settle for solving crimes in the television afterlife, another hopeless ‘09er tries to rally the fans to plead with Warner Bros. one more time for Veronica's silver screen adaptation.
Conclusion From the Above Timeline: Thanks for giving the Veronica Mars Movie an actual email address but, no, this still means nothing. And it would probably be healthiest for all of us Neptune ‘09ers, as much as it pains me to say it, just…move…on.
Warner Bros. decided it was as good a time as any to create an official e-mail address where you can send your pleas for a Veronica Mars movie. While this is surely better than sending pro-Mars letters/e-mails/objects into the WB void, the entirely random timing leads us to believe Warner Bros.' main aim here may have been to create a quarantine zone for Veronica Mars obsessives, so they stop filling random WB employees' in-boxes. But, on the off chance that this might actually help get a movie made, well, you know what to do.
Considering the tweet was sent last Friday night (though to be fair, that was probably the worst time WB could have chosen to broadcast that info) and has gained pretty much no traction since, it doesn't bode well for the potential of a feature film. If Warner Bros. really wanted to make a film they would put it into development, but it seems like they're waiting for a deluge of emails that we don't think they're gonna get before deciding to do something.
WB sets up email for VM movie requestsTwitter: November 5, 2010
Looks like all those requests for a VM movie has caught the attention of the people at Warner Brothers.
Thanks for all of the Veronica Mars LoVe! Please send your film requests and petitions to VeronicaMarsMovie@warnerbros.com.
The hope-springs-eternal side of me would like to believe this email was created because the WB might be interested in a VM movie. The writer of the tweet uses the VM shipper lingo "LoVe" (AKA Logan and Veronica), which shows someone is paying attention to fandom. The life's-a-bitch side of me believes this email was created because the WB wants VM fans to stop clogging up their regular email account with questions about a VM movie. Which side is correct? Only time will tell.
