Braff Shelves 'Open Hearts'

4 September 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Director/actor Zach Braff has been forced to shelve his latest movie, after failing to secure enough cast members to begin filming. The Garden State star has adapted a Danish screenplay called Open Hearts, but is struggling to find people to work with. He tells Moviehole.net, "There is always pressure, but I'm going to do something that isn't anything like Garden State. "The next thing I will do will be completely different, Open Hearts, which is a Danish movie that I adapted. "It's a really dark drama about a car accident and the way the accident affects all the people involved in it. I was going to do it this summer, but since I couldn't get my top people I'm waiting until next summer." »

Moore and Braff Break Up

15 June 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Scrubs star Zach Braff and Mandy Moore have ended their relationship, according to media reports in the US. The couple have reportedly gone their separate ways, mainly due to the nine-year age gap between them. Us Weekly West Coast Editor Ian Drew says, "They both decided that after two years, Mandy was a little young. Zach was ready for something different and they wanted to just kind of test the waters a little bit. It was an amicable break." A source tells the American magazine, "Mandy was very young when they got together and she wanted to see what's out there, now that she's a woman. Zach was mature and realized it is time to let her do that." The pair have been tight-lipped about their relationship, but the 22-year-old singer launched a scathing attack on tabloid journalists earlier this week, who reported on the rumored break-up. She wrote on her website, "I believe that personal issues (like this one) should be kept private. This sort of unscrupulous conduct should be unethical for the media to practice and I'm sickened by the extent that these people are willing to go to make a name for themselves." The 31-year-old Garden State star has wasted no time moving on, he was recently seen partying with pals at Hollywood hot spot Hyde on June 8 and unsuccessfully romancing Jessica Simpson. »

Braff opens 'Hearts' for Paramount

2 March 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Zach Braff will follow up his Garden State directorial debut with a remake of the 2002 Danish film Open Hearts for Paramount Pictures. Braff will adapt, helm, produce and co-star in the romantic drama. Paramount beat out Fox Searchlight and the Weinstein Co. in what insiders described as an intense bidding war for the chance to work with the multihyphenate. Ever since Garden State was acquired at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival by Searchlight and Miramax Films, Braff has enjoyed solid relationships with the Fox specialty label and Harvey Weinstein. But Braff ultimately was swayed by the opportunity to reunite with Paramount's Pam Abdy, who produced Garden State and will shepherd Open Hearts for the studio alongside Brad Weston. Paramount president Gail Berman also was instrumental in bringing the project to the studio. »
