The 2014 Sundance Film Festival just recently announced its programming slate, but the fest adding another title to its Premieres lineup: Zach Braff’s long-awaited directorial follow-up to Garden State. Braff’s new film, Wish I Was Here, revolves around a struggling actor, father, and husband who is struggling to find purpose in life and come to terms with the death of his father. Braff co-wrote the film with his brother, Adam Braff, and he also stars in the pic alongside Kate Hudson, Mandy Patinkin, Josh Gad, Ashley Greene, and Joey King. The pic drew considerable attention earlier this year because it was financed by a Kickstarter campaign, and its Sundance screening will mark Wish I Was Here’s world premiere.
Additionally, Sundance announced that the upcoming festival will play host to a 20th anniversary screening of Clerks, followed by a Q&A with writer/director Kevin Smith.
