Charlotte Gainsbourg (‘Nymphomaniac,’ ‘Melancholia’) and Marie-Josée Croze (‘Calvary,’ ‘The Diving Bell and the Butterfly’) have been added to the cast of Oscar-nominated German filmmaker Wim Wenders’ 3D project ‘Everything Will Be Fine.’
‘Every Thing Will Be Fine,’ based on an original script by the Norwegian Bjørn Olaf Johannessen, tells the story of Tomas (James Franco), a writer who loses control of his life after a car accident. Even though he is not directly at fault, his relationship with his girlfriend breaks down because of this event and his life and work suddenly set off in a completely new direction. The film follows Tomas over a period of 12 years and tells an intimate story of guilt and the search for forgiveness.
In a statement, Wenders said: “’Every Thing Will Be Fine’ is an intimate drama that tells the story of a man who sees the world through different eyes after suffering a traumatic shock. He has to learn to accept what he can no longer change. We are entering new narrative territory with this project. I am convinced that the medium of 3D will be able to open up an entirely new dimension of emotional closeness to our story and its protagonists.”
Gian-Piero Ringel (‘Pina’) will again be the producer via his and Wenders’ company, Neue Road Movies. The 3D feature is a co-production between Montauk Productions (Canada), Göta Film (Sweden), MER Film (Norway) and ZDF/ARTE (Germany).
