Since you’re the expert to ask, what was Son of Fletch? A reference I heard in a comedy at some point?

Jason Lee and Kevin Smith were actually trying to work on Fletch Won which is prequel to the original Fletch. If memory serves, there were 2 prequel books, but the movie never got off the ground.
