Braff is hot in Hollywood again for his new film 'Wish I Was Here'

While he’s making his Broadway debut as the lead of Bullets Over Broadway, Zach Braff will also be prepping his newest film Wish I Was Here for release. The drama, featuring stage stars like Mandy Patinkin and Josh Gad, has just been purchased by Focus Features for $2.75 million following a debut at the Sundance Film Festival.

Written with his brother, Adam Braff, Wish I Was Here stars Braff as a struggling L.A. actor, with Kate Hudson as his wife, Gad as his brother and Patinkin as his estranged, ailing father. The film was funded via a Kickstarter campaign which earned $3.1 million from fans, well over its $2 million goal.

Braff previously wrote and directed the 2004 feature film Garden State, which won the Independent Spirit Award for Best First Feature and a Grammy Award for its kick-ass soundtrack. He also wrote the play All New People, which premiered off-Broadway at Second Stage Theatre in 2011.

Braff will start singing and dancing in Bullets Over Broadway on March 11 at the St. James Theatre.
