Zach Braff Set to Direct Black List Comedy ‘Bump’ About A ‘Cliched Life’

The movie will mark Braff's second directorial effort since his Kickstarter-funded passion project "Wish I Was Here" failed to ignite the box office.

“Wish I Was Here”

Zach Braff’s Kickstarter-funded passion project “Wish I Was Here” may not have performed as solidly as many would have hoped (it failed to make back its $6 million budget with a worldwide gross of $5.5 million), but the actor-filmmaker is pushing forward with new projects. Braff is currently attached to direct “Bump,” a dark comedy written by Ori Guendelman and Rob McClelland that made the 2015 Black List. Working Title is supporting the project as well, according to Deadline.

“Bump” is being billed as the story of what happens when a “cliched life” is disrupted. The main character, Thomas, makes a mistake that sets off a series of absurd events that threaten to destroy the carefully-constructed life he’s worked so hard to maintain. No cast has been announced at this time.

Before Braff takes the reigns on this project, he’ll release his remake of “Going In Style” for Warner Brothers. Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Alan Arkin star in the heist film, which is set for release on April 7, 2017.
