Zach Braff is going for the trifecta, writing, directing and starring in the film as a struggling actor and father trying to find more purpose to his life. Hudson will play his wife in the film, which also stars Mandy Patinkin, Josh Gad, Jim Parsons and Anna Kendrick.
Stacey Sher and Michael Shamberg will produce.
Hudson, who often finds herself in rom-coms, is currently in preproduction on the crime drama “Good People” alongside James Franco. She is repped by CAA.
