Zach Braff Trying to Raise $2MM for his Film on Kickstarter

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
