Warner Bros. "Re-Imagining" Chevy Chase 80's Comedy "Fletch"

Feb 02, 2011

  • Clearly it's time to move on to the '90s. The Hollywood Reporter reports that Warner Bros. is "re-imagining" the 1985 Chevy Chase comedy Fletch into a "smart action comedy that plays out on a bigger canvas." Previously Harvey Weinstein had sought (unsuccessfully) to reboot the franchise and attracted names like Ben Affleck, Joshua Jackson and Jason Lee to the role. But if you think that's bad, wait until you see the Short Circuit and Weird Science reboots hitting the screen later this year, the latter featuring Michael Cera, Jesse Eisenberg and Megan Fox in the lead roles. What's next? Drop Dead Fred with Russell Brand? Coming to America with Martin Lawrence? Oh wait, those are already being made, too. --Derrick Deane
