Though she's currently as Sarah Braverman on "Parenthood," Lauren Graham's original claim to fame was her portrayal of the small-town, heavily-caffeinated Lorelai Gilmore on "Gilmore Girls."

So when it was announced that Kristen Bell was helping to launch a Kickstarter campaign to fund a "Veronica Mars" movie earlier this week, "Gilmore Girls" enthusiasts asked Graham when the same thing would happen for the late WB series.

Graham, who donated to the what turned out to be a successful "Veronica Mars" project, took to Twitter to respond to her fans about the possibility of a "Gilmore Girls" movie.

The Amy that Graham was referring to is Amy Sherman-Palladino -- the creator of "Gilmore Girls" and, more recently, the creator of ABC Family's "Bunheads" -- since Bell worked with "Veronica Mars" creator Rob Thomas to launch that Kickstarter. In 2009, Sherman-Palladino told Entertainment Weekly, "Anything can happen ... I’m in touch with [Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel]. If there’s a story to tell, then absolutely I think we’re all going to want to tell it. That’s the bottom line ... I don’t want to totally say [what my ideas were], because if there is a movie in the making, I’m going to be basically delving back into where I left off, and then I’m kind of [screwed].”

Of course, that was four years ago ... before "Parenthood" premiered with Graham, before Bledel got attached to "Mad Men," before "Bunheads" got picked up, and so on.

Whether or not a "Gilmore Girls" movie comes to fruition, Graham and her on-screen daughter Alexis Bledel -- who played Rory Gilmore -- are keeping themselves busy. Bledel recently signed on to star in Fox's "Friends And Family" pilot alongside Jason Ritter, who has played Graham's on-again-off-again love interest on "Parenthood."
