After discussing the project while having a male lead for at least a year, news comes in claiming that TWC has at least temporarily pulled the plug on Fletch Won.
Weinstein Pulls Fletch Won
Clint Morris at MovieHole reports that he caught wind of some disturbing news suggesting that Fletch Won has been scratched completely off TWC's to-do list.
There’s chatter that The Weinstein’s have cut Fletch Won from their upcoming release schedule.
The rumour comes hot on the heels of the announcement that Zach Braff – who many assumed had the role of Irwin ‘Fletch’ Fletcher sewn up – won’t be playing the film’s lead after all.
Word is Bill Lawrence has now been informed that Fletch is either on hold or isn’t something the studio are interested in pursuing at the moment. If what we’re hearing is true (and let’s face it, after the Grindhouse debacle it makes sense that the Weinstein’s are going to be doing some cost cutting now), here’s hoping someone else picks it up…
Since this film has had a lead in Braff for some time with still no apparent progress, this news doesn't really come in as a shock.
