Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with an update for you Zach Braff fans. I loved GARDEN STATE. Loved, loved, loved it. Natalie Portman has never been cuter onscreen and that's saying something. Braff is finally climbing behind the camera (and behind the keyboard and... uh... in front of the camera) again for a romantic comedy called OPEN HEARTS for Paramount Pictures.
OPEN HEARTS is a remake of a 2002 Danish flick called ELSKER DIG FOR EVIGT about a man who is paralysed in a car accident and his fiance who ends up having an affair with a doctor in the hospital where he's recovering. To add another twist onto things, the Doctor's wife is the one responsible for the accident which paralysed the poor bastard. I haven't seen the flick, but it sounds complex and right up Braff's alley. A Zach Braff romantic comedy is proving to be a treasure to film, a breath of fresh air to the genre. Can't wait to see it. What about you?
