Jon Hamm brings the classic character Fletch back to theaters next month with Confess, Fletch. A trailer for the film has just been released.
Per the trailer’s description on YouTube, “In this delightful comedy romp, Jon Hamm stars as the roguishly charming and endlessly troublesome Fletch, who becomes the prime suspect in a murder case while searching for a stolen art collection. The only way to prove his innocence? Find out which of the long list of suspects is the culprit – from the eccentric art dealer and a missing playboy to a crazy neighbor and Fletch’s Italian girlfriend. Crime, in fact, has never been this disorganized.”
The reboot film was first announced in July 2020. Originally a popular series of mystery novels released int he 1970s, Fletch was famously adapted into two films, 1985’s Fletch and 1989’s Fletch Lives, both starring Chevy Chase as the titular character.
Confess, Fletch hits theaters on September 16 and features Hamm teaming up on screen again with his Mad Men co-star John Slattery. The film also stars Roy Wood Jr., Annie Mumolo, Ayden Mayeri, Lorenzo Izzo, Kyle MacLachlan and Marcia Gay Harden.
