To everyone who shelled out for that Veronica Mars movie Kickstarter, here’s some definitive confirmation Kristen Bell did not secretly fund a When in Rome sequel. It’s a full trailer for the film, which sees the titular heroine dropping her potential law career to return home and solve another post-Nancy Drew mystery. It doesn’t seem to have really expanded much on the source material–plot, craft, or scope-wise–but it does, undoubtedly, look like a Veronica Mars movie. So maybe now creator Rob Thomas can get back to that Party Down thing?
Fans of the television series “Veronica Mars” were devastated when the show was cancelled after just three seasons, and now there’s reason to rejoice.
Kristen Bell is back with a teaser trailer for the forthcoming “Veronica Mars” feature film, slated to hit theaters on March 14th.
The “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” babe and the show’s creator Rob Thomas launched a Kickstarter campaign in March 2013 and raised over $ 5 million for the production.
Per the synopsis, Veronica is called back to her investigatory roots when her ex-boyfriend Logan is falsely accused of murder. There’s also a 10-year high school reunion, and plenty of murder mystery fun.
We almost forgot how much we missed Veronica Mars!! Almost!
The old show’s perfectly preggo star Kristen Bell watched hockey with her hunky hubby lover Dax Shepard on Wednesday when she “accidentally” ran into two of her old co-stars!

Through a tragic oversight, somehow this didn’t already happen a decade or so ago, so Lionsgate-Summit has gotten straight to work at the necessary task of putting Reese Witherspoon in an adaptation of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from the Venus, the relationship self-help book that humorously posited men and women are from separate planets. Haha, men and women are very different! Reese Witherspoon will finally prove that, and then hopefully fall in love with a jerk with a heart of gold.
Aiding Witherspoon in her ’90s comedienne-like task is director Bryan Buckley. Though this would be his first feature, he’s apparently quite a force in the commercial world. According to Deadline’s report, he’s directed over 40 of the expensive, sadly-anticipated spots for the NFL’s biggest night, earning him the nickname “King of the Super Bowl.” (At least until Elton John took the title through painful literalness.) More recently, he directed those Apple Siri spots, which relevantly showed how men be usin’ Siri to chill gazpacho, women be usin’ Siri to figure out if falling water is rain.
Production is expected to begin in January, so in the meantime, keep an eye on TBS to make doubly-sure no one already made this, because it still really feels like someone must have. Matthew McConaughey would probably be in it.

Barack Obama Praises Gabrielle Giffords for the Time 100
There’s a lot to grumble about with the Time 100 – Blake Lively was great in The Town , but I think Mohamed Bouazizi’s self martyrdom that kicked off the Tunisian revolution and the Arab Spring in general might have been slightly more globally influential – but still, the list is an interesting look at the world we live in. Regardless, Barack Obama’s blurb for Gabrielle Giffords’ inclusion on …
