When we last left Fletch Won
, Kim was investigating
the whole "Is Kevin Smith
really off this project" rumor, while tracking down random message board posters (who are you "david1019"?!) and interrogating them, in a cold sterile room, for hours on end. The results: "david1019" (according to the comment he left
here at Cinematical) turned out to be The Wizard of Oz
. Okay, actually he turned out to be producer "David List
" (convinced that's code for something) and re-affirmed the fact that Fletch Won
was moving forward without Smith attached.
So, as some of us writers try to figure out a way to turn this whole Fletch
controversy into a movie, a new hero has emerged from the pack and, although he's made a film about New Jersey, he refuses to remain silent about the future of Fletch
. MTV caught up with Zach Braff
who, at one time, was shoved aside by Smith in favor of Jason Lee
, but now seems to be playing frontrunner. "They're huge shoes to fill...if people see any similarities, he was a goofy guy who wasn't your stereotypical magazine poster boy, but he has the ability to be a great everyman. Those are the parts I'm interested in doing."
Braff also let on that Scrubs
creator Bill Lawrence
is in talks to write the script for Harvey Weinstein
. Oh, and about that whole Kevin Smith thing, he added, "Kevin Smith's not doing it anymore; I don't even really know what happened." Zach, my boy - that makes all of us. Well, unless our friend David feels like stopping by again to spill the beans.
