According to Zach Braff's website (and numerous other sources), Fletch One is a go for launch. This will be the prequel in the book series that has been floating around Hollywood for a few years, but it is about to be made, and with the 'Scrubs' team at the helm.

Braff is in as the lead, and Spin City/Scrubs E.P. Bill Lawrence is directing, which on both counts I think bodes well for this.

This is cool. I liked the Chevy version, but it was more of a Chevy movie than a Fletch movie. Whatever happened to Kevin Smith? I thought he wanted to do a Fletch movie for years.

He wanted Jason Lee as Fletch, which the studio nixed due to Lee being too old to play the younger version of the character. So he bailed-although his track record with non View Askew projects would suggest that was gonna happen anyway.

This is VERY good news for fans of the books. Although I think Ryan Reynolds would make a far better Fletch than Braff.



To those who say people wouldn't look; they wouldn't be interested; they're too complacent, indifferent and insulated, I can only reply: There is, in one reporter's opinion, considerable evidence against that contention. But even if they are right, what have they got to lose? Because if they are right, and this instrument is good for nothing but to entertain, amuse and insulate, then the tube is flickering now and we will soon see that the whole struggle is lost. This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires, and lights, in a box.-Edward R. Murrow

Actually, it's been a pretty good week for Bill Lawrence:

    According to Cynopsis, NBC will announce today that it has ordered six episodes of Nobody's Watching, a series initially rejected by the WB that found a new life on YouTube.


This was a pilot [created by Lawrence and a couple of the writers from Family Guy] that was rejected first by NBC and then by WB and thanks to YouTube got some buzz behind it.

I like Braff, but he doesn't really seem like Fletch. Ryan Reynolds is not a bad choice, actually. He can pull off the right level of smarm and charm that is needed.
