    Sean Penn Was Set To Star In Zach Braff's 'Open Hearts' Before It Fell Apart At The Last Minute

    You might not remember this, but way, way back in the day -- and not too long after "Garden State" hit it big -- Zach Braff had an ambitious plan to do a remake of Susanne Bier's grim drama "Open Hearts." The story follows an engaged couple who deal with the aftermath of a car crash that leaves the man paralyzed from the waist down, and to make matters more complicated, the woman falls in love with the husband of the person who caused the accident.
