Zach Braff is the latest rich person to shake his cup at the public and ask for money to fund his next project... the sequel to Garden State that will totally change your life. Note, however, that this is not a sequel to Garden State.

Braff says he "was about to sign a typical financing deal in order to get the money to make Wish I Was Here, my follow-up to Garden State," but "it would have involved making a lot of sacrifices I think would have ultimately hurt the film." After he saw the success the Veronica Mars Kickstarter had (raising around $5.5 million), he decided to go that route. So here we are...

The actor and director is looking to raise $2 million in one month (so far he's up to $267,853), and will likely surpass that by a few more million. Sure, Braff may be a successful and wealthy celebrity, but this is still better than using the platform for a goddam rainbow parade birthday party.
