Zach Braff to Direct Comedy ‘Bump’ for Working Title

Zach Braff will direct the black comedy “Bump” for Working Title, based on the Black List script by Ori Guendelman and Rob McClelland.

“Bump” received the 10th-highest number of votes last December of the 100 unproduced screenplays on Black List. It focuses on the aftermath of an accidental hit-and-run as a young lawyer’s entire life unravels over the span of one night as he attempts to dispose of a corpse that turns out to be much more than an innocent victim.

Working Title partners Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner are producing and the company’s Liza Chasin is executive producing. Johanna Byer will oversee the project.

Braff is in post-production on the remake of Warner Bros.’ “Going In Style,” starring Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Alan Arkin. The studio will release the film April 7.

Braff’s directing credits include several episodes of his series “Scrubs,” 2004’s “Garden State” and 2014’s “Wish I Was Here,” which was funded by a Kickstarter campaign that raised $3.1 million in 30 days.

Braff is repped by CAA, Management 360, and attorney Ken Richman of Hansen, Jacobson. Guendelman and McClelland are repped by Paradigm, 3 Arts and attorney Tara Kole of Gang, Tyre. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
