Ashley Greene to Replace Anna Kendrick in Zach Braff's <i>Wish I Was Here</i>

Ashley Greene (Twilight) will replace Anna Kendrick in Zach Braff’s upcoming film, Wish I Was Here.

Braff funded the film, which is is a follow-up to Garden State (2004), with a Kickstarter program that raised more than $3 million. The plot centers on struggling actor and father Aidan Bloom (Zach Braff) as he home-schools his children after funds become tight. Braff wrote the script with his brother Adam.

”‘We’ve tried our hardest, but we’ve been unable to figure out the lovely Anna Kendrick’s scheduling conflicts with another movie she’s doing,” Braff wrote in an email announcement to the project’s backers. “I’ve known Ashley for a couple years now and I’m so excited she’s accepted my invitation to join our Kickstarter Klub. Not only is Ashley gorgeous and charming, but she is hilarious, a very good actress and normal and cool and we are so lucky to have her.”

Kate Hudson, Jim Parsons, Donald Faison, Mandy Patinkin, Josh Gad, Bob Clendenin, Matt Winston and Alexander Chaplin will also star.
