Everyone else wants to do it...
Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell recently spoke with Vulture about their new film Hit and Run, and Bell gave an update on the Veronica Mars movie. Here are highlights:
On if she will appear in person on Gossip Girl: "I would want them to do whatever's best for the show, but I would do it if they asked me. I want to know how they're going to reveal it! Or if they're going to keep it a secret. Maybe that's the infamous gossip-media train, an eternal mystery. Why isn't Veronica Mars on the case?!"
On helping Shepard write the script for Hit and Run: "I was more of a sounding board for ideas for it and learning what he was going to go away and write. It wasn't me giving him notes as much as him running things by me. "What if XYZ …?" I really didn't have the desire to create more of my opinion. I wanted more to see Dax's perspective through to the end, so I just tried to be his eyes and ears."
On the Veronica Mars movie: "Oh, yeah. I would love to. Everyone involved wants to do it, but Warner Bros. is a real stinker. It's a real monster of a legal system there. But that's why we did this as an independent movie, without a studio telling us what do, which is why there's an eight-minute-long butt-fucking joke in the movie, something absurdly long that continues to deliver. And I would love to, if I had the money right now to produce it, I would do it in a heartbeat. I still have hope for it. I really do. Even if she's, like, 80 when it takes place, like Murder, She Wrote."
