Actor/director Zach Braff may finally make his follow-up to Garden State — if his fans can help.

On Wednesday, in the wake of the enormously successful Veronica Mars Kickstarter campaign, the Scrubs star launched a crowd-funding campaign to make his next movie. For the next 30 days, he’ll try to raise $2 million on Kickstarter for Wish I Was Here, a film he co-wrote with his brother Adam.

Braff’s movie is the most notable film project since creator Rob Thomas sent shock waves through Hollywood by turning to fans to resurrect his long-canceled, cultishly adored private eye TV series. With 91,585 backers, Veronica Mars pulled in $5.7 million.
