He only launched it three days ago but Zach Braff's Kickstarter funding campaign has already hit its $2 million target.

The Scrubs star took to the fund-raising website to rasie enough money to make Wish I was Here, a follow up to his acclaimed 2004's cult hit Garden State.

He said that he wished to make the film with "no compromises" and it looks like his fans have made the wish come true after 28,000 of them contributed on Kickstarter.

Wish I Was Here, written by Zach and his brother Adam, centres on a struggling actor and family man in his 30s. Zach will take on the lead role of Aidan Bloom, who fantasises about becoming his childhood sci-fi hero, Space-Knight.

Zach said he was inspired to use Kickstarter after the success of the Veronica Mars movie campaign earlier this year.

He told The Hollywood Reporter: "Now financiers are fine for lots of projects and it works out perfectly for many movies, but when you're trying to make these smaller personal art films, the idea of giving final cut away to someone else, it doesn't make any sense for me."

Braff thanked his fans on Twitter for their support of the project on Friday: "Dear Fans, I cannot believe your unbelievable support for WIWH. I wish I could hug each and every one of you."
