Horrible Bosses actor to take on the Chevy Chase role...
Jason Sudeikis (Horrible Bosses, We're the Millers) is in talks to play the lead role in Fletch Won. THR reports that the comedian is in negotiations to play the role that Chevy Chase created on film in the 1985 comedy classic Fletch and its 1989 sequel Fletch Lives. The character is based on the Gregory McDonald novel series about an investigative journalist in Los Angeles.
The film is being described as "a gritty action comedy with heart and more tonally in line with McDonald's novels than the Chase movies." A director is now being sought for the project.
