Actor Gives Up 60% of Salary to Pay for ‘Confess, Fletchi’
When asked how Admit it, Fletch had zero marketing, director Greg recounted the journey of making the film.
“The project basically started with Jon Hamm coming to me and telling me that Miramax had the rights to all but the first book,” the director revealed.
Greg explained the film’s financial arrangements, claiming that Miramax could only finance 27 days of shooting.
“It was the amount of money that would have meant 27 days of filming, which seemed particularly challenging,” Greg said.
The director and Jon sought financiers but were turned down. “So we were looking for partners for the film and they all came through. Everyone was like, ‘I don’t know that this kind of comedy works these days. They were just like, “Who is Fletch? I don’t think anyone cares anymore.'”
Greg explains how it all led to Jon deciding to give up 60% of his salary to fund the entire shoot.
“And we bought three more days of filming. We got it up to 30 days in Boston and one day in Rome. And we said, damn, we’re crazy, we’re stupid. We’re going to make this movie. And then Miramax really supported us creatively. They didn’t fight us on the people we wanted to cast,” he said.
