After seven years of making short segments and documentaries, filmmaker Wim Wenders is returning to features once again in his next film.
Titled Every Thing Will Be Fine, the film now has a new trailer. Wenders takes on only directorial duties for the feature, working from a screenplay by Norwegian screenwriter Bjørn Olaf Johannessen. The German director works with a cast that includes Charlotte Gainsbourg, Rachel McAdams, Marie-Josée Croze, James Franco, and Peter Stormare.
The film’s synopsis is as follows:
While driving aimlessly after a quarrel with his girlfriend, a writer accidentally runs over and kills a child. The accident and its aftermath deeply traumatizes him. Over the next 12 years, he struggles to make sense of what happened and continue on with life, but when he looks in the mirror, he sees a murderer.
This will mark Wenders’ first feature film since 2008’s Palermo Shooting. Wenders, however, has been in theatres in the meantime with documentaries, the latest coming in 2014 and titled The Salt of the Earth. This film marks one of four features that Rachel McAdams will appear in this year, in addition to her role on HBO’s True Detective. The trailer puts the spotlight on Franco’s lead performance while also offering a look at each of the three primary female roles.
Every Thing Will Be Fine will be making its North American Premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival before a Canadian theatrical release on October 23rd. A US theatrical release date has yet to be announced. The trailer can be seen below.
