MUMBAI: On Wednesday, 9 April, Focus Features released the first official trailer for the new Zach Braff’s crowd-funded independent film, Wish I Was Here.
It was in April, last year, that director Braff launched the campaign for his upcoming comedy film to make $2 million to boost his project. The movie is based on his own script co-written with his brother Adam J. Braff. By 24 May, the campaign generated a total of $3,105,473 funded by 46,520 people.
Wish I Was Here is Braff’s follow-up to his indie breakout hit Garden State. Wish I Was Here stars Zach Braff (Scrubs) along with Kate Hudson (How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days), Mandy Patinkin (Homeland), Josh Gad (Frozen), Ashley Greene (Twilight films), Joey King (The Conjuring) and Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory). The movie is produced by Stacey Sher, Michael Shamberg, and Zach and Adam Braff.
The movie is a story of a thirty-something man who finds himself at a major crossroads, which forces him to examine his life, his career, and his family. Aidan Bloom (Braff), a struggling actor, father, and husband is trying to find the purpose of his life at the age of 35.
