Confess, Fletch LA Times journalist Irwin Morris Fletcher (Hamm) finds several murders in the middle – one of which makes him the main suspect. In an effort to prove his innocence, Fletch’s job is to find his bride’s stolen art collection, the only legacy he has acquired since his father disappeared and is presumed dead.
The journey to reach Fletch Returning to the big screen has seen more twists and turns than source novels. The deadly sequel was followed by years of directing races (Kevin Smith, Bill Lawrence) and star names coming and going (Zach Braff, Ben Affleck, Jason Lee), but now it finally looks like Fletch is going to break in wisely again.
