Jason Sudeikis is the latest actor picked to play I. M. Fletcher in the third Fletch film, "Fletch Won," which has been in development for around 20 years.
A third Fletch film has been in the works since the sequel, Fletch Lives, was released in 1989. In 2000 Kevin Smith was writing and directing the film with Miramax, but the studio was unable to agree with Smith on a lead actor. Smith left the project in 2005.
Warner Bros. grabbed the rights to the film in 2011 and did not find a writer for the film until recently.
