Today Zach Braff launched his own Kickstarter project for a film he hopes to star in and direct. “After I saw the incredible way Veronica Mars fans rallied around Kristen Bell and her show’s creator Rob Thomas, I couldn’t help but think maybe there is a new way to finance smaller, personal films that didn’t involve signing away all your artistic control,” Braff says.
His film, a dramatic comedy called Wish I Was Here, was co-written by Zach and his brother, Adam. It follows a father/husband/struggling actor in his 30s, and Zach says it serves as a thematic sequel to his acclaimed first feature, Garden State.
So far the movie has raised $250,000. The Kickstarter ends on May 24 at which point it remains to be seen if he’ll break the $5.7MM record by Veronica Mars. Quick thought here. Shouldn’t Zach Braff have $2mm on his own? According to Celebrity Net Worth, Braff is worth $22million. That’s 11 times what he wants to raise. Come on Zach! Story via
