As we all know, James Franco likes to keep busy. He’s currently shooting on Rupert Goold‘s drama True Story, his adaptation of As I Lay Dying is set to premiere at Cannes, he’ll be seen in the summer comedy This Is the End, he might co-star in Werner Herzog‘s Queen of the Desert, and he’ll be directing and starring in The Garden of Last Days. Now he’s got another project on the way by signing on to Wim Wenders‘ 3D film, Every Thing Will Be Fine. According to Deadline, “Franco will play Tomas, a writer who accidentally causes the death of a child. The story examines the twelve years following the accident and its impact on Tomas, and the child’s mother.” According to The Film Stage, Sarah Polley is attached to co-star.
Wenders tells Deadline the movie was written with 3D in mind because he’s “convinced that the medium lends itself really well to an intimate story.” It’s tough to argue with assessment when the 3D in his previous film, Pina, was by far the best aspect of the movie.
