Jon Hamm Set to Star in 'Fletch' Reboot!

Fletch is getting a reboot!

Jon Hamm is set to produce and star in a feature film about the investigative reporter, which will be directed by Superbad‘s Greg Mottola, Deadline reported on Wednesday (July 15).

Here’s what to expect: “The movie, like the Chevy Chase films in the 1980s, is based on Gregory Mcdonald’s 1970s and 1980s Fletch mystery novels. The new film adaptation will specifically be based on the second book in the Mcdonald series, Confess, Fletch. In a mysterious chain of wild events, Fletch finds himself in the middle of multiple murders — one of which pins him as a prime suspect. While on a quest to prove his innocence, Fletch is tasked with finding his fiancée’s stolen art collection, the only inheritance she’s acquired after her father goes missing and is presumed dead.”

The first movie Fletch, released in 1985, made close to $60 million worldwide.

“We could not be more thrilled to see what 21st century twist these artists create,” said Miramax CEO Bill Block.

It was recently revealed that Jon Hamm is dating this person!
