"Scrubs" Master to Revisit "Fletch"

by | July 26, 2006 | Comments

For a while there it actually looked like a new "Fletch" flick would come via Kevin Smith and Jason Lee, but unfortunately it never came to pass — and now comes word that "Scrubs" creator Bill Lawrence has been signed by the Weinstein House to kick-start the "Fletch" series.

ComingSoon.net actually scooped the big boys on this news: "(CS.net) has confirmed that "Spin City" co-creator and "Scrubs" creator Bill Lawrence will write and direct the next two "Fletch" films for The Weinstein Company, of which the first remains "Fletch Won" … Now that Lawrence is indeed on board, (Zach) Braff definitely has an edge over other actors."

Then The Hollywood Reporter chimed in with some extra clarification: ""Scrubs" creator Bill Lawrence is writing and directing a prequel to the ’80s franchise "Fletch," and if he has his way, Zach Braff will star in the title role. The Weinstein Co. has signed Lawrence to helm and adapt Gregory Mcdonald’s 1985 comic-mystery novel "Fletch Won," which follows the irreverent detective from his early days as a ne’er-do-well junior newspaper reporter to his partnership with a crime reporter to solve a murder."

Good news for all, but let’s hope this doesn’t mean the end of "Scrubs."
