A new take on Fletch is set to hit screens, starring Jon Hamm as the titular investigative reporter.

Many will know the Chevy Chase movies Fletch and Fletch Lives from back in the 1980s. They were based on a character created by mystery author Gregory Mcdonald in a series of 11 novels.

Now, as we’ve already divulged in the intro, he’s returning to screens in the form of Jon Hamm. This one will be based on Mcdonald’s second book in the series, Confess Fletch.

Superbad director Greg Mottola will be handling the direction on this adaptation, which has been penned for the screen by Zev Borrow, who notably also worked on the wonderful TV series Chuck.

While we wait, here’s a reminder of the Chevy Chase version:
