Anna Kendrick & Kate Hudson Join Zach Braff's 'Wish I Was Here'
Despite some misinformation about the funding coming together for Zach Braff's film Wish I Was Here, following a very successful Kickstarter campaign, it sounds like the Garden State director has his head on straight, and there hasn't really been any deception to those who so graciously helped Braff get his project off the ground. And so the film marches onward with a couple new casting additions. First, The Wrap reports that the lovely Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect, 50/50) has landed a supporting role and Deadline pegs Kate Hudson for a role alongside Braff, who is leading the film in addition to writing and directing.
For those who don't know yet, the film follows Braff as Aidan, a struggling actor trying to support his wife and and kid as he's still trying to figure out his identity and purpose in life. Aidan only gets through the days fantasizing about being the great futuristic Space-Knight he’d always dreamed he’d be as a little kid. Hudson will play his wife while Kendrick plays a cosplaying love interest for Braff's nerdy brother, being played by Josh Gad (Love and Other Drugs). With all the drama surrounding the project's funding hopefully in the past, we're eagerly anticipating a worthy follow-up to Braff's indie darling, Garden State. Thoughts?
