Ace reporter Fletch will be snooping his way around the big screen again. Warner Bros. has announced that it is planning to reboot the popular '80s film franchise, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Chevy Chase starred in the original two "Fletch" movies, which were based on Gregory McDonald's mystery novels about investigative journalist I.M. Fletcher.
Filmmaker Kevin Smith tried for over a decade to revamp the franchise with an adaptation of "Fletch Won" — with everyone from Ben Affleck to Jason Lee to Joshua Jackson being eyed for the lead —but the project eventually fizzled out.
No word yet on who is being considered to headline the Warner Bros. film or when it will be released.
