Fletch Reboot to Be Written by Seinfeld/Curb Writer
Warner Bros. has snagged screenwriter David Mandel to write their reboot of the Chevy Chase classic, Fletch. Mandel’s got a pretty great resume: Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, SNL, Sacha Baron Cohen’s upcoming The Dictator, the Clerks TV series… EuroTrip… and, um, The Cat in the Hat. OK, so it starts better than it finishes. But still, even thought I’m not sure the world really needs a reboot of Fletch, which is a pretty great movie as-is, if they must remake it, at least they’ve got a guy with a decent track record writing it for them.
