Jason Sudeikis Fletch
It’s been a long time coming -- this latest attempt began in 2011 -- but the “Fletch” remake is finally coming down the pipeline. THR is reporting that fellow “SNL” alum Jason Sudeikis is in talks to fill Chevy Chase’s shoes as the titular character in “Fletch Won.”

From somewhere in the late-'90s until about now, Chevy Chase had fallen off the map. There was a time when no comedy star was brighter than Chase, but his reputation for being difficult to work with and a string of bad pay-day movies found the comic icon struggling, until his new gig on "Community" revitalized his career. Seemingly back in the public consciousness, now would be a good time for Chase to become cooperative and boost his profile by helping along the "Vacation" and "Fletch" reboots that are in various stages of development. But it seems some old habits die hard.

Once upon a time, there was a man called Chevy Chase. From his first appearance on the early days of "Saturday Night Live," it was clear that he was very, very funny. He swiftly became one of the biggest comedy stars of the '80s, starring in hits like "Caddyshack," "National Lampoon's Vacation" and "¡Three Amigos!". It also became clear that Chase was kind of a dick, and the work dried up in the '90s. Now, with Chase mounting a storming comeback as part of the ensemble of the best sitcom on TV, "Community," it seems as good a time as any to resurrect the character perhaps most associated with the actor, Gregory McDonald's investigative reporter "Fletch."
