Zach Braff plans to reunite with 'Scrubs' creator for a new sitcom

3 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Zach Braff plans to reunite with “Scrubs” creator for a new sitcom “I’ve been talking about a new idea with Bill Lawrence who created ‘Scrubs,’” Braff tells UK’s Independent. "I don’t know if it will be this year or next. I like the idea of cable because I don’t want to do 22 episodes, but I like the idea of this new wave that you can do 12 episodes or eight episodes maybe for cable or Netflix or wherever. There are so many more options now. It's an exciting time.” “Red Band Society” disappoints, “The Mysteries of Laura” gets a big “America’s Got Talent” boost The Fox teen hospital drama debuted to four million, while 10.4 million checked out Debra Messing in “Laura.” Laverne Cox to host and produce “The T Word” documentary for MTV The “Orange is the New Black” star will focus on seven transgender youths »

Wish I Was Here: Zach Braff on his long-awaited Garden State follow-up

16 September 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Zach Braff cemented himself as a filmmaker to watch with his debut feature Garden State in 2004, but it's taken him a decade to make follow-up Wish I Was Here. So why the long wait? After initially searching for funding and full creative control within the studio system, the former Scrubs star turned to Kickstarter after feeling resistance from the industry who'd lavished praise on his first film.

Digital Spy caught up with Braff on the eve of Wish I Was Here's UK release to discuss his eagerly-awaited movie comeback...

After 10 years away from the director's chair, did he miss it?

"I really did. I directed episodes of Scrubs and I directed a pilot and some smaller things but I was really, really excited to direct another film. I just feel most at home directing a film, I just feel like I was made to do it. I'd wanted to »

Movie Review – Wish I Was Here (2014)

15 September 2014 7:49 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Wish I Was Here, 2014.

Directed by Zach Braff.

Starring Zach Braff, Kate Hudson, Mandy Patinkin, Joey King, Pierce Gagnon, Josh Gad, Ashley Greene, Donald Faison, Michael Weston, James Avery and Jim Parsons.

Synopsis:

Aidan Bloom is a 35-year-old man who finds himself at major crossroads, which forces him to examine his life, his career, and his family.

Much has been made of Wish I Was Here even before a metaphorical ball was “kicked”. After many failed attempts to get any sort of project going since his first film, 2004’s superb Garden State, writer-director Zach Braff’s sophomore effort comes with the weight of two different expectations: the success of State, but now from 47,000-odd fans and followers who have helped part-fund the film outside of the “system”. Finally, a decade on from his first jump into the world of directing, Braff is back and whether you’re already a fan or not, »

Wish I Was Here Review

15 September 2014 4:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Zach Braff

Starring: Zach Braff, Kate Hudson, Mandy Patinkin, Joey King, Pierce Gagnon, Josh Gad

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 106 minutes

Synopsis: Aidan Bloom is a 35-year-old man who finds himself at major crossroads, which forces him to examine his life, his career, and his family.

I’m a huge fan of Zach Braff’s directorial debut Garden State (2004) and I found that I both related to and enjoyed on its own merit; in equal measure. Braff merged a curious mix of cleverness with reality and now in Wish I Was Here he does it again but with additional heart alongside a positive flirtation with nostalgia.

Wish I Was Here has been co-written with Zach’s brother Adam J. Braff, and while it primarily focuses around 35-year-old Aidan Bloom (Zach Braff), who’s found himself struggling at a crossroads in his life, it also dives deeply to discuss relationships with family »

Wish I Was Here review: Zach Braff's misguided Garden State follow-up

15 September 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Zach Braff; Screenwriters: Zach Braff, Adam J Braff; Starring: Zach Braff, Kate Hudson, Joey King, Pierce Gagnon, Josh Gad, Jim Parsons, Ashley Greene, Mandy Patinkin; Running time: 107 mins; Certificate: 15

After the acclaimed dramedy stylings of Garden State, it's taken Zach Braff a decade and some Kickstarter crowdfunding to get his second feature (as director) off the ground and in the end, Wish I Was Here looks destined to disappear up its own backside. Apparently, Braff is still struggling with the same issues; again playing a failing actor trying to get in touch with his real feelings, in the real world. But at 35 years old, the 'little boy lost' routine is more pathetic than sympathetic.

As co-writer of the script (with brother, Adam), Braff gives himself a major stumbling block to get over in making Aidan a worthy hero. The guy fancies himself as an astronaut saving the world while away from his fantasies, »

New UK Poster For Zach Braff’s ‘Wish I Was Here’

26 August 2014 4:46 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Koch Media will release Zach Braff’s Kickstarter feature Wish I Was Here in the UK on 19th September, and we’ve got a brand new UK poster for the film as the British promotional campaign kicks into gear.

Wish I Was Here” is the story of Aidan Bloom, a struggling actor, father and husband, who at 35 is still trying to find his identity; a purpose for his life. He and his wife are barely getting by financially and Aidan passes his time by fantasizing about being the great futuristic Space-Knight he’d always dreamed he’d be as a little kid. When his ailing father can no longer afford to pay for private school for his two kids (ages 5 and 12) and the only available public school is on its last legs, Aidan reluctantly agrees to attempt to home-school them. The result is some funny chaos, until Aidan decides to »

Will this trend ever end?

Kate Hudson, John Mayer, Rihanna, Eminem, Tina Fey and Chris Evans have added their names to the growing list of celebs who have got drenched and donated money for research for the Lou Gehrig.s disease.

Kate Hudson received a triple nomination from Zach Braff, Erin Foster and Derek Hough and maybe that is why she decided one bucket was not enough.

The Bride Wars star ran away from her family and friends, while they chased her around pouring buckets of ice cold water on her. She nominated picked her mother Goldie Hawn, her co-star Matthew McConaughey, and her fiancé Matt Bellamy's band Muse.

An end of the summer stab at Golden Globe predictions

22 August 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Hi everyone! As previously mentioned in my last installment, I was originally planning on waiting to take a new look at Golden Globe predictions until the summer was over (so basically September), but I couldn’t resist. I’m back now with what’s my third look at the Golden Globe Awards, with this time around, a new theory to try and drum up some different predictions. Here goes nothing! To reiterate once again, the big difference you’ll see here between the Academy and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is that they tend to go for the bigger names or the bigger productions. As such, I’ve again got Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken and David Fincher’s Gone Girl ahead of Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher here. You also still potentially lose certain indie players, as you’ll see evidenced by much smaller nomination totals (or even shutouts) for Richard Linklater’s Boyhood, »
