When you take a look at movies like Garden State and The Last Kiss you can see that Sir Zachary Braff CLEARLY knows a thing or two about music. In the past he has featured music by The Shins (Garden State introduced so many people to them), Rufus Wainwright, Cary Brothers, Zero 7, Frou Frou, Turin Brakes, Coldplay, and so many more amazing artists!
Now that Zach has just finished writing, directing, and acting in his new film “Wish I Was Here” it sounds like he is putting together one awesome soundtrack. According to Entertainment Weekly, the new Garden State-esqu film’s soundtrack will feature new music from
Bon Iver and the Shins, as well as a collaboration between Cat Power’s Chan Marshall and Coldplay’s Chris Martin (Endless Love colab comes to mind) ! Braff told EW that Marshall and Martin’s joint effort is “the title song of the movie” and he described it as “one of the most amazing songs ever”. If that doesn’t get you crazy excited then I don’t know what will!
Wish I Was Here stars Zach Braff (obvs), Kate Hudson, Jim Parsons (fast food night!), Ashley Green, and many more. It just debuted at Sundance earlier this year. It will release to the public July 25th THIS YEAR (YAY!). Here is the synopsis: ‘Wish I Was Here’ is the story of Aidan Bloom, a struggling actor, father and husband, who at 35 is still trying to find his identity; a purpose for his life. He winds up trying to home school his two children when his father can no longer afford to pay for private education and the only available public school is on its last legs. Through teaching them about life his way, Aidan gradually discovers some of the parts of himself he couldn’t find.”
Sounds great doensn’t it?! Now all we have to do is wait 😦
