Lee's two cents on "Fletch" casting

Lee's two cents on "Fletch" casting
Caffeinated Clint

Kevin Smith shared the e-words of one Jason Lee – whom Smith wanted to headline his upcoming “Fletch Won”, before the studio stepped in and suggested otherwise – with the gang at NewsAskew. "I understand. I really do. I understand how a company like Miramax works, and quite frankly I don’t feel like fighting them for a project that I probably don’t feel as passionate about now as I did 2 years ago. Of course that’s no offense to you, it’s just that I don’t feel as interested in doing comedies lately. Would Fletch be a typical comedy? No. Are you a typical comedy director? No, of course not. But still, it seems to be how I feel. It also has a lot to do with the fact that I’ve started Stereo Skateboards again, am having a son, am planning on finally directing (my script) next year, and have grown pretty fond of smaller movies. New experiences, different experiences. Trying to expand, yet simplify at the same time. Prioritize my creativity, you know? This very small movie that I’m working on right now with Daniel Day-Lewis has really brought me back to "the Chasing Amy time in my life" and has helped restore a lot of my drive and enthusiasm for acting. Not sure if any of this makes much sense to you, but something tells me it does." The studio has offered suggestions to Smith by way of Adam Sandler, Jimmy Fallon, Brad Pitt and Ben Affleck, among others. Smith tells Moviehole he still ain’t sure who to go with.
