“Veronica Mars” has unleashed a beast.
Following Rob Thomas and Kristen Bell’s massively successful Kickstarter campaign, which raised $5.7 million on a $2 million goal to fund a movie version of their CW television show, Zach Braff is the latest A-lister to dip his toes into the crowd-funding pool. The former “Scrubs” star launched a Kickstartercampaign on Wednesday to raise $2 million for a long-awaited follow-up to his 2004 indie hit “Garden State.”
The proposed film, “Wish I Was Here,” will center on a struggling actor and family man who decides to homeschool his kids while still trying to find his identity at the age of 35. On the project description notes, Braff, a regular backer of Kickstarter projects, wrote that he became motivated to launch the campaign after seeing the overwhelming success of the “Veronica Mars” effort.
