Ashley Greene replaces Anna Kendrick in film
Los Angeles: Actress Ashley Greene has replaced her ‘Twilight’ co-star Anna Kendrick in Zach Braff`s new movie `Wish I Was Here` after the latter dropped out due to date problems.
Kendrick was slated to star in Braff`s "Wish I Was Here" with actors Kate Hudson, Mandy Patinkin, Jim Parsons and Donald Faison, but had to pull out due to other filming commitments.
In an email to the movie`s online backers, sent out on July 16, Braff revealed that Greene has been brought in as a replacement, reports contactmusic.com.
"Well, since you`re having your first shot as being (a) movie producer, it`s time you experience something that happens a lot: Scheduling conflicts," he said in the mail.
"We`ve tried our hardest, but we`ve been unable to figure out the lovely Anna Kendrick`s scheduling conflicts with another movie she`s doing... You may know Ashley from Twilight. I`ve known Ashley for a couple years now and I`m so excited she`s accepted my invitation to join our Kickstarter Klub (sic).
"Not only is Ashley gorgeous and charming, but she is hilarious, a very good actress and normal and cool and we are so lucky to have her," he wrote.
Braff used crowd-funding website kickstarter.com to raise $3.1 million in donations to make the film, which is a sequel to his 2004 movie "Garden State".
