    Zach Braff Joins Chloe Moretz & Jessica Biel In 'The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea'

    Planning To Adapt Stage Play 'All New People' Into A Feature FilmFor a moment there, the world seemed be his oyster for Zach Braff. The "Scrubs" star wrote and directed the mega indie hit "Garden State" which not only did gangbusters at the box office, but also spawned a best-selling soundtrack that suddenly had music supervisors everywhere looking at independent labels to find the music for their films.

    Leonard and Nelson have been friends for ages. Leonard is the charismatic, underachieving, but obsessive screenwriter looking for a fast track to success, and Nelson is his self-deprecating and accommodating writing partner who always has a few bucks to spare. As both confront a mid-30s reality check and a pile of unsuccessful screenplays, Leonard convinces Nelson to back his stint at a glitzy LA rehab clinic so he can pitch their new movie deal to mega-star Gregg D.
