The trailer is out for “Confess, Fletch” – a film adaptation of one of the novels from George Mcdonald’s series about irreverent investigative reporter Irwin ‘Fletch’ Fletcher.
Chevy Chase famously played the character in the 1980s, and now former “Mad Men” star Jon Hamm steps into the role as Fletch finds himself as a suspect in a murder case.
At the same time, his own investigation into a stolen art collection puts his heiress girlfriend on the suspect list.
John Slattery, Kyle MacLachlan, Marcia Gay Harden, Roy Wood Jr. and Annie Mumolo co-star while Greg Mottola (“Superbad”) directs from a script co-written with Zev Borow.
The film will score a limited theatrical release with a day-and-date VOD release on September 16th, and will then premiere on Showtime from October 28th.
