Kate Hudson Set For Wish I Was Here
She's Zach Braff's wife

Kate Hudson

With his funding now in place, Garden State writer/director Zach Braff is ploughing ahead with his Kickstarter-aided new film Wish I Was Here. He’s deep in casting mode, and is now adding Kate Hudson to the movie.

Braff will star (much as he did with State) as Aidan Bloom, a struggling 35-year-old actor who is having trouble finding his identity and providing for his family. He and his wife (Hudson) are struggling financially and when his father (Mandy Patinkin) falls ill and is unable to pay for his kids’ private schooling, Aidan decides to teach them himself.

Yet he’s still got a lot of growing and learning to do himself, especially when he can’t seem to stop leaning on the fantasy character Space-Knight he created as a child.

Josh Gad is also aboard as Aidan’s brother, who has a crush on a cosplay girl (Anna Kendrick) he meets.

With a script co-written by Braff’s brother Adam), Wish I Was Here should be shooting in August for a September 2014 release. Hudson is on our screens now in The Reluctant Fundamentalist and has recently worked on HBO TV movie Clear History with Jon Hamm and an almost unrecognizable Larry David, who you can glimpse in the teaser below.
