    The previous DVD release of "Fletch" has been out-of-print for some time. Any news on a new release?

    FYI: The old version of Fletch has been showing up in Wal-Marts (look for a display of $4.88 Universal Studios DVDs).

    Thanks, Patrick!!
    Unfortunately, my "neighborhood" Wal Mart did ot have "Fletch" or the Universal display. Perhaps these "Fletch" DVDs will surface at Best Buy, Circuit City or Tower Records?

    Hopefully Universal revisits this one soon with a SE. And I'll charge it to Mr. Underhill's credit card.

    Fletch Won with Zach Braff is planned for a 2006 release(or is it 2007?) Most likely a SE would come out around then.

    Probably will be paired with FLECTH LIVES for a Franchise Collection disc at one point. That seems to be the Universal thing to do. It is too late to announce a 20th Aniv. SE.

    I think I read at FletchWon.net that he's no longer attached. Good news IMHO.

    I checked NewsAskew, and indeed, as of October, he wasn't attached anymore.

    As for whether or not that's a good thing, I don't know. After reading the books, I realised that the movies don't resemble them at all. Fletch is a real bastard in the books, and Smith and Lee could have really brought out that aspect of the character.

    This is pretty harsh considering that there would be no "Fletch" project in development at all if not for Kevin Smith.
