Sarah Weinman blogged ComingSoon.net's confirmation that Bill Lawrence (Spin City, Scrubs) has taken charge of two Fletch movies for The Weinstein Company.
Lawrence is expected to begin shooting Fletch Won in April 2007.
Lawrence says, "The coolest thing about the 'Fletch Won' book is that it's an origin story," said Lawrence. "Like 'Batman Begins,' I think people will enjoy seeing how Irwin Fletcher became Fletch. Not only can I recite the original 'Fletch' movie line for line, I actually read all the Greg Mcdonald books as a kid. Consider me obsessed, - I'm going to try as hard as I can not to screw this up."
I'm officially excited.
