’s director Wim Wenders
continues to push the artistic and technical boundaries of 3D with his new 3D project, Every Thing Will Be Fine
. The ever-busy, ever-Franco-centric James Franco
has taken on the lead role in the upcoming drama.
The celebrated German filmmaker’s (best known for the movies Wings of Desire
and Paris, Texas
) return to form on the narrative front always bubbles just below the surface. Every Thing Will Be Fine
will mark his first dramatic feature since Palermo Shooting
Franco will portray Tomas, a writer, who accidentally finds himself implicated in the death of a child. Over the next twelve years, he struggles to make peace with himself as he watches the effects of the accident on his life and that of Kate, the child’s mother.
We wrote it with 3D in mind and I’m convinced that the medium lends itself really well to an intimate story.
The original screenplay is written by Norwegian Bjorn-Olaf Johannessen
(Dirk Ohm). Production is scheduled to begin on location in Montreal on August 15th.
It should be interesting to see how Wenders uses 3D for such an intimate drama.
Franco who recently starred in Spring Breakers
and Oz: The Great and Powerful
is currently filming True Story
opposite Jonah Hill for 20th Century Fox. He is also in talks to work with another legendary German filmmaker, Werner Herzog, in the picture Queen of the Desert
