Zach Braff might be on his way to directing some Swingles next

07.26.2010

It's been a good while since GARDEN STATE came out.

Since then Zach Braff has finished his run on SCRUBS and starred in a couple of less than memorable films. I had hoped that after his directorial debut with GARDEN STATE that perhaps it would challenge him to write something more ambitious.

During an interview with Time Out New York, Braff mentioned what he had coming up, "Iím hoping to direct Swingles soon. And Iím in the midst of [writing] my first original since Garden State. Iím also writing a play, because now that I live in New York, Iím infatuated with the theater." SWINGLES is a rom-com about a group of thirty-somethings finding their way through the singles scenes. Not to be confused with Cameron Crowe's SINGLES about a group of twenty-something trying to find their way through singlehood and relationships in the grunge era.

Braff re-wrote the script and Cameron Diaz was once attached, but there's no word if she is still on the project or not.

The actor was coy when talking about the original project he was working on saying, "Um, itís too early for me to talk about the plot, but thatís something more in the Garden State oeuvre."

I was completely taken with GARDEN STATE when it came out. It was this gem of a movie that had Natalie Portman, Peter Sarsgaard, and an excellent soundtrack. Personally, I'd skip the rom-com, but maybe he will bring something special to it.

Zack please stop...

Swingles was a terrible script. With the clunky writing Garden State had, I can't see Braff making it any better.

Braff was definitely underrated in The Last Kiss. It's unfortunate that "The Ex" was a godawful movie. The guy is definitely talented though.

Huge fan of Braff and think he is brilliant. Garden State was a masterpiece and is number two on my favorite films list of all time. Scrubs is also my favorite show and he is a big reason why. Based off Garden State, Braff has proved that he is talented in the writing/directing department and I think this movie will be interesting based off his previous work and the story. Can't wait for his next original film.

Well, that synopsis doesn't make it seem all that original, but I really liked Garden State and I think Braff could do something interesting with it. But he should definitely try to break out of the "JD" type roles if he dosen't want to get typecast.
