    I'm not sure what part of that worries you. It's been years since the show went off the air so it would hardly make sense to have it still be a high school or college mystery drama. Veronica Mars the character has surely moved on with her life and we'd get to see what Rob Thomas had in mind. Personally I'm not too concerned he's going to go too left field with whatever he has in mind (e.g., turning Veronica into super-spy Nikita or something equally silly).

    Umm... what part did I have a problem with? Maybe the part I bold and quoted.

    My problem is Rob Thomas isn't going to make the movie he wanted to make with a slightly different feel VM, but ones the fans want because they funded it. He should do whatever he wants and fuck the fans. :lol:

    I'm pretty sure he's going to make whatever the heck is floating around in his head and not crowdsource the script just because it's Kickstarter funded. I don't think many true artists and writers would change their work that much to accomodate what the fans want.

    Did you not read what I quoted? He already admitted that he is going to give fans what they want.

    You're reading way too much into that comment.

    Unless I missed it, there's no indication of what "giving the fans what they want" means and how much it overlaps with his original plans. Maybe his plan was that dreadful looking FBI continuation without any of the original cast beyond Kristen Bell, in which case the leaked ideas would be a big departure from that. For all we know "giving the fans what they want" could mean that fan favorites like Logan or Keith show up again with minimal disruption to his original ideas.

    No need to worry about the FBI angle. Thomas confirmed in that same interview that Veronica never joined the FBI.
