Wim Wenders seems to have enjoyed his time experimenting with 3D last year in his dance documentary Pina, as the legendary director has announced his next project, a narrative film also in the format. THR lets us know the first casting for the film titled Everything Will Be Fine, along with a few plot details.
With her next directing effort, Take This Waltz with Michelle Williams and Seth Rogen, set to hit theaters this summer, Sarah Polley will be stepping back in front of the camera for this film described to be a family drama. Bjørn Olaf Johannessen wrote the screenplay that follows a “German magician who disappears in the wilds of rural Norway.”
Although I love Wenders’ work dearly, I seemed to be the vast minority on Pina, as I didn’t think the director used this new technology in any sort of startling new way, as one expects from such a great filmmaker. I’m much more interested in seeing him take on a narrative film and Polley is a fine actress to help him do so. Hopefully we’ll get more details on this one soon.
Wenders hopes to complete Everything Will Be Fine by the end of this year.
Are you excited Wenders is working in 3D again?

Genre film fans are likely familiar with writer Alex Garland‘s output over the last decade and a half. He made his name with a splash when his novel was adapted into the backpacking adventure thriller The Beach in 2000 and struck again with screenplay for 28 Days Later which some credit as the fire that helped reignite […]
