Showrunner Rob Thomas is doing a Joss Whedon by taking his prematurely canceled "Veronica Mars" to the big screen, reports "Watch with Kristin." Let's hope that this movie fares better than "Serenity," the cinematic continuation of Whedon's "Firefly." It'll certainly be cheaper, which makes it a more attractive proposition to monied producer Joel Silver. (Note to Joel: please, no cameo roles for your friends. It's no coincidence that the worst episode of "Veronica Mars" starred Paris Hilton.)
Thomas tells E! that his schedule has opened up now that his remake of his own "Cupid" has been curtailed by ABC. And the "90210" reboot didn't work out too well for Thomas, either.
