Zach Braff wants to direct again soon

Zach Braff has revealed that he can't wait to direct a film again.

The Scrubs star, who made his directorial debut with 2004's Garden State, admitted he is itching to return behind the cameras.

"I'm casting right now, and this year I'm going to get back into the director's chair and make a film I've written with my brother Adam," he said.

Zach did not reveal if he would also star in the as-yet-untitled film.

"It's a comedy drama about a father who, for a bunch of reasons, has to home-school his two young kids. He's not too solid with the academics himself so he learns to be a good teacher and a good dad through being with his kids," he explained.

The 37-year-old - who plays Finley the winged monkey in Sam Raimi's Oz The Great And Powerful - has directed several episodes of hospital drama Scrubs but admitted that he has been busy with other work.

"I just had so many things I wanted to do - a lot of acting. I wrote my play All New People which I brought to the UK and to the West End," he explained.

"I went to get my pilot's licence and learnt how to fly a plane, so life has gotten me busy but I can't wait to do it and this is the year I'm going to get back to it."

:: Oz The Great And Powerful is in cinemas now.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Gemini:

A friend will tell you about a job opening at their company. This lead will turn into a dead end. Don't set your hopes on this possibility. Instead of looking for another job, concentrate on fulfilling your duties. Tempers are running high. The last thing you want is to catch the attention of an irritable superior. If someone does criticise your work, remain silent. These remarks may be terribly unfair, but defending yourself will only make the situation worse. Breathe deep. This, too, shall pass.More
