Greg Mottola talked to Uproxx recently about the unorthodox way he and Jon Hamm handled budget constraints during the shooting of his new crime caper, Confess, Fletch, which is currently in theaters. Mottola explained that Hamm came in to assist in the shooting of the film when the budget wouldn't allow for the time needed to finish it.

"We gave back 60 percent of Jon's salary, not as much as Jon because he is richer than me and Ive got three kids." "We bought three additional days of shooting, and we said, "Were going to shoot this." "And Miramax really supported us, creatively.

Confess, Fletch, based on Mcdonaldand's 1976 novel, focuses on a former investigative reporter who is accused of a crime while investigating a missing art collection. Mottola directed the film from a script by himself and Zev Borow. Marcia Gay Harden, along with Bill Block and Connie Tavel, also contributed to the film.

Confess and Fletch may not be making a lot of noise at the box office, but they are a huge critical hit, currently achieving an 85 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Mottola is already planning a sequel to the journalism conference novel Fletchs Fortune, according to Uproxx. "I've got a lot of ideas for how to bring that into all the crazy worlds of today."

Confess and Fletch will premiere on Showtime on October 28 while still playing theatrically.
