In a new interview, via Variety, Greg explained that the money that Miramax executive Bill Block put up for the film only covered 27 days of shooting.
Then, when he and Jon went to find extra funding to bring the shoot to 30 days, they were rejected by every financier.
“Everyone said, ‘I don’t know that this kind of comedy works in this day and age,’” Greg said. “They just had a kind of like, ‘Who’s Fletch? I don’t think anyone cares anymore.’”
That’s when Jon stepped in.
“Jon gave back 60% of his salary to the budget,” the director continued. “I gave back some of my salary, not as much as Jon because he’s richer than me and I’ve got three kids. And we bought three more days of shooting. We got it up to 30 days in Boston and one day in Rome.”
He adds, “We said, f*** it, we’re insane, we’re dumb. We’re going to make this movie. And then Miramax really supported us, creatively. They didn’t fight us on people we wanted to cast.”
