James Franco has signed on to topline the Bjorn-Olaf Johannessen-penned family drama ‘Every Thing Will Be Fine.’
Set to begin filming in Montreal from August 15th, the film sees Franco playing Tomas a man who, whilst driving aimlessly around the outskirts of town after a trivial quarrel with his wife, accidentally hits and kills a young boy. The story follows the man through the next twelve years as he searches for the footprints of the terrible accident on his life, as well as that of Kate, the child’s mother.
Sarah Polley (‘Splice,’ ‘Dawn of the Dead’) is attached to play the mother.
The 3D feature – yes, you read that right – will be directed by Wim Wenders (‘Pina,’ ‘Paris, Texas’). In a statement, the German filmmaker said, “A story of guilt and forgiveness, and of accepting things you cannot change anymore. We wrote it with 3D in mind, and I’m convinced that the medium lends itself really well to an intimate story.”
Wenders’ Neue Road Movies partner Gian-Piero Ringel is on board to produce.
