Back in May, we learned that Anna Kendrick was going to appear in Zach Braff's Kickstarted movie Wish I Was Here. Well, it appears Kendrick doesn't wish she was here anymore, as she has left the project. Braff then went down his list of Twilight actors and cast Ashley Greene. Greene will play a cosplay-loving comic-book-convention attendee, with whom Braff's brother (Josh Gad) falls in love. Sounds good, but there go all those costumed cup-song scenes.
