But the evil
emperor empire Warner Bros. Studios just won't give up the rights! Meanies!
All poor Kristen Bell wants to do with her career is relive her glory days as Veronica Mars on the big screen. She's been jonesing for a chance to get her TV show adapted to a movie like forever, but the studio seems to have no interest in making it. While on the red carpet for her flick You Again last night, she told sources that if the studio didn't want to, she would be willing to finacne the movie herself!
But even her Gossip Girl funds are no match for the iron clutches of WB. They will not be beaten and they won't give her the rights. She explains:
"At this point, Warner Bros. can make it but like any studio they have research that tells them whether or not they'll make their money back. And that's what we've been told: That it's just not there. So my duty, because I wanted this movie made from the minute our show got canceled, is to a) do it before I'm 40; and b) to prove to Warner Bros. that there is an audience. You already have 3 million who watched it every week hardcore fans that will see it — you can only build from there."
Poor thing! When will she stop torturing herself?
Probably right about the time they decide they're ready to make it!
