Attention, fellow marshmallows. Are you thrilled about the upcoming Veronica Mars movie? Well, now you can also be excited about two new books coming out in connection with the flick based off of the popular television series. Alloy Entertainment (that’s us!) will be working with creator Rob Thomas on a two-book deal that focuses on the adult life of the popular character played by Kristen Bell.
The plot of the books will pick up where the movie ends. The first book will come out with the movie, which will most likely happen in spring of 2014.
Rob, who will develop and co-write the series, said, “I started my career as a novelist. Veronica Mars was first imagined as a novel. I’m thrilled that I’m going to get the opportunity to continue telling Veronica Mars stories in a form I’ve loved and missed.”
As many fans recall, the series ended with Veronica taking criminology and sociology classes…which just means that Neptune’s toughest private eye is going to have had plenty of time to hone her already impressive set of skills. We can’t to wait to what the future holds for Little Miss ‘Persnicketier!’
