Fletch Gets New Director & Star

By Garth Franklin Sunday June 10th 2007 07:52AM

With Zach Braff gone, the planned 'Fletch' prequel entitled "Fletch Won" seemed to stall.

Now, the IESB reports that "Dawson's Creek" and "The Skulls" star Joshua Jackson is apparently up for the title role of Irwin Fletcher, the wise-cracking investigative reporter from the previous two Chevy Chase movies.

On top of this, they also say Steve Pink is tipped to be taking over for Bill Lawrence in the directing chair. Pink helmed last year's disappointing frat comedy "Accepted" and penned the acclaimed John Cusack comedies "Grosse Pointe Blank" and "High Fidelity".

No further word on casting, dates or budget unfortunately.
