Dang, Jon Hamm Gave Up A Huge Chunk Of His Fletch Salary Just So The Movie Could Get Made


We hear about certain movies being called passion projects, but Jon Hamm just gave the world a real lesson on what that really looks like. The actor was so committed to getting Confess, Fletch made that he took a significant pay cut just so the production would be able to afford to make the movie.

If you weren’t even aware that a new Fletch movie recently opened, with the now rare simultaneous theatrical/VOD release, starring Jon Hamm in the role once made famous by Chevy Chase, you’d be forgiven. The film was always a very small sort of production working with a fairly limited budget, but now we know how limited it really was. Director and co-writer Greg Mottola recently told Uproxx that in order to get the movie financed at all, they had a hard cap on how much of the studio’s money they could spend. Mottola explained…

So, I finished a draft, and Bill Block at Miramax has been the champion of this project since the beginning. I don’t blame anything about the release of this movie on him. He’s tried everything he could try. Basically, he said, ‘Up to a certain amount of money, I can fully finance this film,’ but it was the kind of amount of money that would mean 27 days of shooting, which seemed especially challenging. So we looked for partners on the movie, and everyone passed. Everyone said, ‘I don’t know that this kind of comedy works in this day and age.’ They just had a kind of like, ‘Who’s Fletch? I don’t think anyone cares anymore.’
