People have been talking about an Arrested Development movie for so long, with so little apparent progress, that it’s starting to seem less like an Indiana Jones 4-style inevitability and more like an angry ghost haunting Hollywood. But there’s another long-in-the-works TV adaptation that’s been lurking for for years: Veronica Mars. Producer Rob Thomas mercilessly teased Michael Ausiello a few months ago, and now, Kristen Bell has taken to Twitter, begging/demanding that her followers start a hashtag revolution to get this baby born. “#veronicamars fans send petitions & any obsessive behaior u have 2 @wbpictures & demand the film,” she tweets. “They c no audience 4 it? i beg 2 differ.” PopWatchers, what’s a TV lover to do? We all know only one of these movies can be made: the balance of the universe demands it!
