Zach Braff’s Kickstarter film to debut at Sundance


It seems like just yesterday everybody was coming down on high-earning “Scrubs” star Zach Braff for taking money from regular people via Kickstarter in order to fund his “Garden State” follow up, “Wish I Was Here.”

Well just like that the film is done and set to premiere in Park City, Utah at the Sundance Film Festival in January, USA Today reports.

In addition to directing and co-writing the project, Braff also has a starring role, alongside Kate Hudson, Mandy Patinkin, Josh Gad, Ashley Greene, and Joey King. In other words, enough Jews to warrant an impromptu on-set Rosh Hashanah celebration.

“Wish I Was Here” is not in competition at the festival, but we’re definitely looking forward to seeing what kind of reaction it gets. Hopefully his investors won’t be disappointed.
